Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has included Josh Windass in his Rangers starting XI to face Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Wednesday and fans on Twitter aren’t happy.
Gers fans are still upset after the 2-0 Scottish League Cup semi-final defeat by Motherwell and believe Caixinha should have wielded the axe on his under-performing side.
Windass had three good chances against ‘Well and failed to test the keeper with any of them.
Caixinha has made three changes to his starting XI with Wes Foderingham, Ross McCrorie and Jason Holt replacing Jak Alnwick, Fabio Cardoso and Carlos Pena, as confirmed by the club’s Twitter account.

Caixinha has come under close scrutiny following the weekend’s loss to Motherwell and will no doubt want to get back into winning ways against Steve Clarke’s Killie.
However many believe that Caixinha’s choice to start Windass is simply the wrong one.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Holt in for Pena but Windass still starts.

Windass has been a huge disappointment for Gers fans this season and the former Accrington ace has lost virtually any support the Rangers fans had for him with a series of woeful performances.
A win for the Light Blues could see them close the gap on leaders Celtic and Aberdeen with the top two going head-to-head at Pittodrie at the same time as the Gers take on Killie.
