Halting in-form Rangers midfielder is key to Celtic victory in Old Firm


When Celtic take on Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday, one of the players in Graeme Murty’s side that the Hoops will have to be wary of is Josh Windass.

The 24-year-old has been in great from for Graeme Murty’s side in recent weeks, taking his tally of goals for the season to 16.

His goal threat from midfield is something which Brendan Rodgers will have to contain if the Hoops are to pick up the three points at Ibrox which would all but clinch the Scottish Premiership title.

It will be interesting to see if Rodgers puts Olivier Ntcham up against Windass in a man-marking role, to try and limit his influence on the game.

As the match is one which Rangers need to win to keep their title hopes alive, they will be pushing forward for much of the game, and Ntcham and Hoops skipper Scott Brown will be key men when it comes to stopping Windass having an influence on the game.

Windass has improved significantly in his second season at Ibrox, and it is up to the Hoops to find a way to stop him having a huge impact on the game.

If they can do that, it would be a big step towards victory in the Old Firm derby.
