When Rangers allowed Josh Windass to move on this month to English Championship side Wigan Athletic, fans simply continued their split on his merits as a player.
A 24-year-old genius who would simply improve under the charge of new manager Steven Gerrard or a man who got lucky with his goal return last season, but offered little else on the pitch.
The camp is still divided as shown by the social media reactions to his transfer move itself.
That’s now something for Wigan fans to consider after their club shelled out £2.5million for his services, and having made his debut for them last weekend against Aston Villa – a 3-2 defeat – he managed to split his new fans down the middle when it came to his 20 minute cameo at the end of the game.
He was lively by all accounts when he entered the pitch as a substitute, but missed a guilt-edged chance with minutes to go, and with him not capitalising, the hosts did in stoppage time to take all three points.
Windass looked bright when he came on yesterday – and probably should have scored. Subs are going be important now, so it's good see we can bring genuine quality on. #wafc

Ask Rangers fans he misses lots of chances. I think in relative terms this is the best depth in attacking areas we've had in my time as a latics fan.

Especially for those who sat on the opposite side of the fence, it sounds all too familiar doesn’t it.
