Josh Windass: This is where I prefer to play for Rangers

Rangers attacker Josh Windass has revealed the tactical switch which has helped him kickstart his floundering Ibrox career and admitted that he is finally getting to play where he would prefer to.

The former Accrington Stanley ace has been used as part of Rangers’ front-line in recent weeks and has looked a completely different player at times to the one who had continually disappointed for the previous 18 months.

Windass has contributed four goals and two assists in his last seven appearances – beating his tally for the entire of last season – and has started to win over fans who had given up hope of getting anything out of the player.

The 24-year-old admitted that he would “prefer” to play down the middle, like he has in recent weeks in Rangers’ revamped 4-1-2-1-2, and believes that has been backed up with his recent goal return.

“I have played the last three or four games down the middle, which is where I prefer, and I have scored a lot from there,” Windass said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

“Graeme (Murty) wants me running through the middle and creating space in the pockets.”

Windass has scored a total of five goals in twenty appearances so far this season as he has helped the Gers to second in the Scottish Premiership.

The Light Blues trail leaders Celtic by five points and only lead third-placed Aberdeen on goal difference.

Windass and his teammates travel to Easter Road on Wednesday night to take on Neil Lennon’s Hibs as they look to keep the pressure up on Celtic with the second Old Firm clash of the season looming.
