Midfield ace Josh Windass has revealed that striker Joe Garner has been begging him to supply a cross for him to score since his £1.5million move to Rangers.

The former Preston forward got on the end of one of Windass’ corners, connecting to produce a powerful header that flew into the net as the Gers drew 1-1 with St Johnstone.

Windass posted on his personal Instagram account following the 1-1 draw, heaping praise on his teammate after the striker scored his second goal for the Gers.

Garner, 28, has struggled to hold down a regular starting place in Mark Warburton’s side this season with the Gers possessing an abundance of attacking talent.

The likes of Martyn Waghorn, Kenny Miller, Barrie McKay, Harry Forrester and Stephen O’Halloran are all vying for a place in the front three.

Windass and Garner are likely to feature for the 54-time Scottish champions on Saturday, as they host Scottish Premiership rivals Kilmarnock.

A win for Warburton’s side could see them close the gap on Old Firm rivals Celtic to just six points, if other results go their way.
