'It is difficult' - Josh Windass makes admission about Rangers hot streak
Rangers attacker Josh Windass has admitted the match ball from his first professional hat-trick is in his dog’s bed – but revealed the ball from his “special” treble against Hamilton in Sunday’s 5-3 win will be kept safe.
Windass bagged a hat-trick against Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup before repeating the feat in Sunday against Hamilton.
The 24-year-old has scored 14 times in his last 18 games for the Light Blues to rocket up the scoring charts and earn himself a new contract at Ibrox.
The former Accrington star admitted that to score a league hat-trick was “special” as he revealed his aim to keep scoring at such a prodigious rate after bagging nine in five games.
“To be honest the other match ball is actually in the dog’s bed,” Windass said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“But this one, because it is signed, I will leave it in my room.
“I’d obviously not scored a hat-trick before in the Premiership so to do so is special.
“Nine in five is a good record and hopefully I can keep carrying it on.
“It is difficult to keep scoring that many goals but I will give it a go.”
Windass’ new contract will keep him at Ibrox until 2021 after his impressive form following Pedro Caixinha’s sacking in October.
All but one of Windass’ 15 goals this season have come since the Portuguese was dismissed with his replacement, Graeme Murty, clearly getting the best out of the former Accrington star.
The 24-year-old has also been a big creative outlet for the Gers with 8 assists this season in his 31 appearances for the Light Blues.
Windass joined the Gers in 2016 from Accrington Stanley for £60,000 alongside defender Matt Crooks.
