Rangers manager Graeme Murty has Josh Windass available for selection in Sunday’s Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final after he missed the 4-0 win over Dundee – but Murty must keep the 24-year-old out of the starting XI for the national stadium showdown.

Windass has scored 17 times this season for the Light Blues but has really struggled for form in his last few appearances and shouldn’t just walk back into the starting XI.

Kenny Miller took Windass’ place for the win over Dundee and got his name on the scoresheet for the Gers in his first start since December 13th.

The veteran striker probably isn’t the answer although it seems a bit more likely that he’ll get the nod to start ahead of Windass at Hampden.

The 24-year-old key player has a tendency to vanish in big games and Sunday’s Old Firm clash is the biggest game of the season for the Light Blues and keeping Miller in the side – or bringing in Jason Cummings – would offer a better option for the Gers than the former Accrington star.

Until Windass can find a greater level of consistency then he is someone the Gers simply can’t rely on in big games – even if he can score for fun against other sides in the Scottish Premiership.
