Windass has the potential, showing more and more each game. We should be offering him improved terms, longer contract, and bigger release clause! At least 8-10 Million. Going rate for players these days!

Windass is our best player now. No longer looks like a kid but instead taking on a senior like role at club. We need him on new contract quickly.

Aye Murphy looks a great signing. Windass starting to mature into this squad I think, going to be a very important player for us. Hope they can tie him down to a new contract

Since Graeme Murty’s appointment in October, Windass has found himself used as a second striker and has led to the best run of for since joining the Ibrox giants.
Windass’ current Ibrox deal ends in 2020.
