Rangers have rejected a bid of £200,000 for Josh Windass from Wigan Athletic – and the Ibrox faithful on Ywitter want much more from the Latics for the 23-year-old.
The move, as exclusively revealed by Football Insider on Friday, was rejected immediately with Daily Record claiming that the Gers are holding out for a bigger fee worth £2million for the former Accrington Stanley star.
Windass has hit a recent purple patch of form for the Gers with five goals for the Light Blues since the end of October.
The attacker moved to Ibrox last year and has made fifty appearances for the Gers scoring a total of seven times since his move north.
Fans were less than impressed with Wigan’s offer – with one fan calling it a “joke.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
200k for windass is way of the mark obviously but 3.5m we won’t get . I’d be delighted if we got £2m

Josh windass to an english team in any division is on his current contract worth at least 1 million. 200k is an absolute joke. Time to just slap our own price tags on outgoing players and if it’s not met then the bid is just not even answered to. We are rangers ffs

If someone has bid £200k for Windass then it's a pretty simple answer Rangers will give them. Josh is worth a fair bit more than that but you can't blame a club for making a bid even if it is low.

200k bid for windass, just shows how poorly we’ve dealt with our departures nobody’s taking us serious. Think they’ll get our players for buttons and they may be right.

Windass missed the midweek win over Motherwell through suspension but is expected to return to the Gers’ starting XI when they take on Old Firm rivals Celtic on Saturday.
The former Accrington attacker spent much of last season playing in a central midfield role before being shifted out to the left-wing by Pedro Caixinha following the sale of Barrie McKay to Nottingham Forest in the summer.
Since Caixinha’s sacking in October, Windass has been moved to a more central role as an attacker which has coincided with his best run of form since joining the Ibrox giants in 2016.
