'It was only a friendly' - Josh Windass delivers verdict on Rangers goal v Atletico Mineiro
Rangers attacker Josh Windass has admitted it was “nice” to get on the scoresheet in the 1-0 win over Atletico Mineiro in the Florida Cup.
The former Accrington star scored the only goal of the game with a delightful finish from Eduardo Herrera’s lay off to give Graeme Murty’s side a deserved lead.
The Gers fielded two different XI’s in either half with Windass involved in the second-half as the Gers took the game to the Brazilians.
Windass admitted that the goal “doesn’t mean too much” since it was only a friendly but was happy with the way his team-mates performed in Orlando.
“It was only a friendly, so it doesn’t mean too much but it’s nice to take part in this competition and to win,” Windass said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“To come to a hot country like this and to play it’s difficult, but the lads did well and we got the win.
“It was a great run from Daniel Candeias down the left and he pulled it back, then Eduardo Herrera has set me up and I just swazzed it into the bottom corner, so it was nice.
“We all knew at the start of the game that we were getting forty-five minutes each so to come on and to score is a good thing.”
After a disappointing start to his Rangers career, Windass has looked much more like the player fans were expecting recently and was the Gers best player across the 90 minutes in Orlando.
The Gers now face Corinthians on Saturday night in their final game of the Florida Cup and will be hoping to make it two wins from two.
Murty’s side then return to domestic action on January 21st when they head north to face Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.
Three days after facing Fraserburgh, Murty’s side welcome Aberdeen to Ibrox in a must-win clash for the Light Blues.
