Rangers manager Graeme Murty spoke openly about how star player Josh Windass can become a great player following his side’s 2-0 win over Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premier League on Tuesday night.
The 24-year-old midfielder scored a sublime 39th-minute opener from a cross and the boss stated that Windass needed to become more consistent and improve on his defensive duties if he is going to progress in his career.
Murty said in The Scottish Sun: “He came into the office the other day and talked for 40 minutes about his game.
“He feels he’s been good but he wants to be great.
“We talked about his consistency and his level, the things he is great at and about enhancing them.
“We also spoke about him doing what he does in the back two-thirds of the pitch better, to make him more reliable for the team.
“Once he does that, I’ve no doubt lots of teams will look at him.”
There have been question marks over Windass’ ability to reproduce a good level of performance week in and week out and criticisms over the player’s form led to the 24-year-old’s goal gesture on Tuesday night after he held his finger to his lips, as though to hush the doubters.
And only at the weekend, Murty pointed out the midfielder’s role in the second goal the Gers conceded at Ibrox as they fell to defeat against Hibernian – he was way out of position from the restart.
However, the midfielder now has ten goals to his name this season which is a healthy tally from the centre of the park and as long as he can make the improvements to his game that the boss has suggested, he will move up a serious level.
