'Empty jersey', 'Rotten' - Rangers fans react to 23-year-old display against Hearts

By Harry Sykes

Josh Windass was subbed off in Rangers’ 0-0 draw against Hearts on Saturday – and Gers fans on Twitter almost universally slammed his display.

The midfielder was named in the starting XI for the third consecutive league match this season as Pedro Caixinha made just one change from the side that lost 3-2 against Hibernian last week.

Windass was used on the left side of midfield but struggled to make a consistent impact and was replaced after 53 minutes by Niko Kranjcar.

It proved to no avail for Rangers in what was a second match in succession without victory for Caixinha’s side, who had lost at home to Hibernian last weekend.

Supporters were unimpressed with the contribution of the 23-year-old Englishman as they expressed their feelings on social media.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Windass insisted earlier this month that he had no interest in leaving Rangers and that Ibrox was the best place for him.

Last month, Hull City legend, and Windass’ father, Dean was embroiled in a Twitter spat with Rangers fans after they criticised his son’s performance against Progres Niederkorn in the Europa League.
