Without question, Rangers have been supremely busy in the summer transfer market, and while Steven Gerrard has notably improved critical areas of his squad, the potential departure of Josh Windass could significantly weaken the quality of the Gers’ starting eleven. 57% of the respondents in our poll think that his departure would represent bad news for Rangers.
As the Daily Express reported last week, Cardiff City are readying a bid for Josh Windass, and his departure would reduce the pedigree of Steven Gerrard’s starting eleven. In truth, his first season with the Gers was relatively uneventful, having only amassed a single goal in 27 appearances. Nonetheless, he demonstrated the true extent of his attacking qualities last season, as he scored a stupendous total of 18 goals in all competitions – which is mightily impressive for a midfielder.
To their credit, Rangers had the most prolific attack in the Scottish Premiership last season, as they scored 76 goals in 38 league games. The key to their success derived from having players – from a multitude of positions – who could contribute goals and play a purposeful role in the final third of the pitch. It would be challenging for Rangers to identify and acquire the services of another midfielder who is capable of attaining similar statistics to what Windass achieved last campaign.
Therefore, it isn’t a surprise that the majority of the supporters that we asked believe that his departure would affect the Gers negatively. Here is the result of the poll!
