'Improving every week' - Rangers fans rave about 24-year-old for display v Hamilton
Rangers attacker Josh Windass kept up his recent phenomenal scoring record as he hit a double in a 5-3 win against Hamilton to take his recent run to 14 goals in 18 games.
Windass’ first goal of the afternoon was down to a big slice of luck when Hamilton keeper Gary Woods made a mess of the attacker’s strike and slapped it into the roof of the net.
The former Accrington star scored his second when he rounded off a fantastic team move and fired beyond Woods to give the Gers a 4-2 lead before half-time.
Windass completed his hat-trick with 20 minutes left, beating Woods with a deft finish after Daniel Candeias’ quick throw.
Gers fans were left raving about Windass’ performance on Twitter – with one fan saying the 24-year-old is starting to look “clinical” as he continues to score on a regular basis.
Here are some their comments on Twitter:

Windass signed a new contract on Friday to keep him at Ibrox until 2021 after his sensational form this season.
The 24-year-old looks like a different player under Graeme Murty with all but one of his 14 goals this season coming since Murty replaced the sacked Pedro Caixinha in October.
Windass is now also the second-highest goalscorer in the Scottish Premiership behind Ibrox team-mate Alfredo Morelos.
The Hull-born star joined Rangers from Accrington in 2016 for £60,000 alongside Matt Crooks.
