With bid incoming from England, Rangers must sell in-form mainstay in January if price is right
Rangers must sell Josh Windass if Wigan Athetic make an acceptable offer for the in-form Ibrox attacker.
The English League One leaders are lining up a bid for the 23-year-old, as exclusively revealed by Football Insider, and if Wigan make a decent offer, the Ibrox giants should take the money and look to bring someone else in.
Windass has been in good form for the Gers over the last few months with four goals in his last six appearances as the Gers have leapfrogged Aberdeen in to second-place in the Scottish Premiership after back-to-back wins.
It’s the first sustained period of good form Windass has had since moving north from Accrington Stanley in 2016 with Matt Crooks.
With a new manager expected at Ibrox shortly, getting one or two players off the wage bill might prove necessary before he can bring his own players in.

If Wigan make a decent offer for Windass then it’s probably worth letting him be one of them.
Even allowing for Rangers’ recent shift to playing two strikers, Alfredo Morelos, Eduardo Herrera and Kenny Miller are already battling it out for a place in the starting XI with Academy prospects Ryan Hardie and Zak Rudden looking to earn a first-team spot.
While he’s been good for the last few weeks, it’s taken this long to get anything resembling passable performances from Windass.
If he suddenly loses his momentum, would it be another 18 month wait before he gets back to his best?
Rangers should leave Wigan to find the answer out to that one.
