'There's a player in there' - Rangers fans react to 24-year-old performance v Hearts
By James Black
Rangers fans on Twitter have given a glowing review of Josh Windass after the Gers won 3-1 against Craig Levein’s side at Murrayfield on Saturday afternoon.
Kenny Miller’s double and a second-half strike from Windass sealed the win for the Gers – and fans hope it can lead to improved performances from the 24-year-old.
The former Accrington midfielder did brilliantly to get on the end of Kenny Miller’s pass before cutting inside and finishing low at the near post to make the scoreline 3-1 and finish off Hearts.
Despite his goal, Windass had a quiet afternoon and struggled to impose himself on the game as Graeme Murty’s side looked to push forward and get in behind the Hearts defence.
Fans were happy to see Windass get on the scoresheet – with one even saying if he could score goals like that more consistently he would be one of Rangers’ “best players.”

That goal will do windass a world of good and hopefully give him a bit of confidence. There’s a player in there somewhere.

Good solid performance, good to see the team react to going behind the way they did, Also nice to see Windass score to silence his critics.

Forget Kenny Miller – Josh Windass scoring? Give Murty a contract for life.

Absolutely delighted with that result. Buzzing for Windass

The 3-1 win takes Rangers into third place in the Scottish Premiership before Hibs and Motherwell face-off on Saturday afternoon.
The strike was only Windass’ third since joining the Gers in 2016.
Next up for Murty’s side is the visit of Partick Thistle to Ibrox next Saturday.
The Gers have already played Thistle twice – playing out two draws over 90 minutes – and Murty will be hoping his side can carry this form into next weekend’s clash.
