Two London clubs line up move for Rangers midfielder - report
By Danny Wright
English championship outfits QPR and Brentford are weighing up moves for Rangers midfielder Josh Windass, according to a report.
News outlet HITC claims that the London clubs are two of the latest sides to join the race for the 23-year-old, who looks to have been pushed down the pecking order at Ibrox thanks to Pedro Caixinha’s ruthless summer overhaul.
It is understood that Windass could be the latest player to leave the Glasgow giants following a spate of new signings made this summer.
Although the former Accrington Stanley man only signed for Rangers last year, and was used in their Europa League qualifier at Progres Niederkorn earlier this month, it appears as though he might not have a future with the Scottish Premiership side.
HITC reports that QPR see Windass as a player who could bolster their attacking threat ahead of next season while Warburton’s former side Brentford are “keeping tabs” on the midfielder’s situation.

In total, Windass scored one goal and supplied five assists in 28 appearances across all competitions for the Light Blues.
Football Insider Verdict
Windass is one of a number of Warburton’s recruits that simply didn’t meet expectations in Glasgow so Caixinha should definitely look to sell up as soon as possible and earn back some of the money he has spent this summer. Rangers look like they have a really solid midfield going into next season with Graham Dorrans, Ryan Jack and Carlos Pena among the ranks. Windass would probably do a decent job at either QPR or Brentford, but he certainly won’t improve their squads so much that they’ll undergo a massive change. Both will still be expected to come near to a relegation battle next season, with or without the supposed unwanted Gers man.
