Rangers attacker Josh Windass has responded to criticism of him from a prominent Scottish journalist – and Gers fans are far from impressed with the 24-year-old.
Who is Gary Ralston 😂😂😂

After a series of disappointing performances from the 17-goal attacker in recent weeks, Gers fans think Windass’ only response should have been on the pitch as many of them agreed with Ralston – with one saying they’ve “never known” a player to hide as much as the former Accrington star.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Gary Ralston was absolutely spot on in what he said.
I’ve never known a player to hide & pull out of as many tackles as Windass does.
In the games we are up against it he disappears & contributes very little for vast majority of the game you actually forget he’s on the pitch https://t.co/wuJbkBMWQV

Kris Boyd scored plenty of goals, yet Walter removed him for certain games to stiffen the midfield. Windass is similar to Boyd in terms of lack of work rate and goals. Instead of mocking Ralston he should pull his finger out and work his bollocks off for the team.

That Josh Windass tweet annoys more than it should tbh, but still, sums him up. He’s a guy who has been nothing more than a below average player but thinks he’s made it and is some kind of superstar. He’ll be forgotten very quickly after he leaves, likely in the summer.

Walter Smith would have made Josh Windass delete his Twitter account, the club seems like a holiday camp, the Warburton era guys need cleared out ASAP loser mentality running wild

Spot on. Windass goes missing for most of the game too often. A man down.

Windass is the Light Blues’ joint-top goalscorer this season with Alfredo Morelos and recently signed a new contract to tie him to the Light Blues until 2020.
Despite hitting the net 17 times, Windass performances have been criticised by fans and his tendency to go missing in games is a common complaint from supporters.
The former Accrington ace limped out of the 2-2 draw with Motherwell last weekend and looks set to miss the Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee at Ibrox on Saturday and could be a doubt for the Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Celtic eight days later.
