'Makes you scratch your head' – Murty slams Rangers star for inconsistency
Rangers boss Graeme Murty has admitted that Josh Widnass can be inconsistent at times, and believes that is what is holding him back from being a top class player.
Speaking in a press conference, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times, the Gers boss stated that Windass can sometimes do something that leaves him ‘scratching his head’.
“The delivery and cross in for the first goal was great. But then you need to execute it and Josh has that execution of the highest order.
“And then in the next breath he will do something that makes you scratch your head.”
The 24-year-old has been integral for the Gers this season, playing in 29 games across all competitions, and even finding the net 10 times, including that hat-trick versus Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup.
Murty believes that the Englishman can be a great player, but just need to rule the inconsistencies out of his game.
“That’s the bit that he has to get right – that’s the bit that’s going to get him to the next level. That’s the bit he needs to sort out. When he’s top level, he’s great.”
Since making the Ibrox switch during the summer of 2016, Windass has improved severely, as the former Accrington Stanley man has scored nine more goals this season than he did all of last season, with plenty more games left to play.
It is starting to look like the reported £60,000 fee was a major coup for Gers, although that sum was a compensation fee to Accrington.
Windass missed some time due to injury during his first season, but has cemented his place as a first team regular this season with his powerful and creative play from the midfield.
