Mark Allen pulls off best Rangers business in years after agreeing terms with first teamer

A key man at the heart of Rangers’ recent good form is Josh Windass, and the club’s success in getting the player to sign a new long-term contract could well be one of the best bits of transfer business done at the club in a long time.
The 24-year-old first teamer, who recently agreed terms to a one year extension to his contract to keep him at the Light Blues until 2021, has burst into form in recent weeks.
His hat-trick in Sunday’s 5-3 victory over Hamilton took his goal tally for the season so far to 15, which is a very good return for a midfielder.
Nine of those goals have come in the last month, as the player has proved to be integral to a Gers side that’s currently occupying second place in the Scottish Premiership table.
Tying Windass to a new deal means that the Light Blues are likely to get a good bit of money for the player when he eventually leaves, something the Gers have failed to do in recent years.
Until he leaves the club Windass looks set to be a mainstay of the side, and it’s more good work from director of football Mark Allen in getting the contract signed as the transfer chief has pulled off the best piece of business Ibrox has seen in years to get the attacker to sign a new deal.
Now supporters will be looking for Windass’ goals to continue to be a feature of the side as they pursue an unlikely attempt to catch Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
