Rangers attacker Josh Windass has been in a remarkable run of form since Graeme Murty took the reigns at Ibrox in October – but the 24-year-old’s home form needs to improve when Celtic visit Ibrox on Sunday.
In a number of away games this season Windass has been the spark in the Gers side which has helped them to a win but he very rarely impacts matches at Ibrox in a similar fashion.
With Sunday’s crunch Old Firm clash likely to be a huge factor in the outcome of the title race, Windass needs to put in an impressive performance against Brendan Rodgers’ side or everything before will count for little.
Murty’s side need a win against their bitter rivals if they are to have any hope of overturning the six-point gap at the top of the table and, with Celtic having a game in hand, Sunday will be make-or-break for their title ambitions.
There’s no doubt that Windass has the talent to change games and put opposition defences to the sword but too often he goes missing in bigger games at home and doesn’t show quite how capable a player he is but if he has any sort of ambition to go on and play at a higher level than the Scottish Premiership it needs to change quickly.
At 24, Windass’ age and inexperience only goes so far as an excuse for poor performances but if he puts in a performance at Ibrox like he does at other grounds then the attacker could end up as the toast of Gers fans come Sunday night.
