Josh Windass believes that the winter break has come at just the right time for him and his Rangers team-mates.
The Gers have been in action since June when they were knocked out of Europe by Progres Niederkorn, and Windass thinks that the non-stop football has taken it’s toll on the players, but the tiredness is as much a mental thing as it is a physical thing.
“It is good to get a rest, more mentally I think than physically, it has been a long season with us starting the European campaign off early – so it is good to get a little break.” he said, as quoted by Rangers’ official website.
Windass has been one of the players who has benefited most from the job that Graeme Murty has done since coming in as first interim, but now permanent manager at Ibrox.
The 24-year-old has scored six goals so far this season and the Light Blues recently showed how much they value his contributions to the team by turning down a £500,000 bid from Preston.
Following the Florida Cup matches against Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians, the Gers return to Scotland to take on Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup, before meeting Aberdeen at Ibrox in a match that could be pivotal in the battle for second place in the Scottish Premiership.
Only three points separates the teams and a Gers win could see them return to second place in the league table.
