Former Rangers star Josh Windass has admitted during an Instagram Q&A session that he wishes he had not left Ibrox.
Windass joined the Gers from the EFL League one outfit Accrington Stanley in the summer transfer window of 2017 and ended up spending two full campaigns at the club before sealing the move to Wigan.
He scored 19 goals and picked up 13 assists in 73 games for Rangers (Transfermarkt), but he wasn’t the most popular player amongst some fans, with whom Josh occasionally clashed.
He was taking part in a Q&A on his Instagram page when was quizzed whether he has any regrets about his time at the club. Windass’ answer was short and to the point: “Leaving.”
Fans have to admire his honesty – clearly, the player wishes he didn’t leave the club when he did.
The 27-year-old star impressed during his second campaign at Ibrox in the 2017/18 season, when he netted 17 goals across all competitions while also grabbing eight assists.
Josh is now at the League One club Sheffield Wednesday and did relatively well last term, scoring nine goals and registering six assists in the EFL Championship – last summer, ex-Owls boss Gary Monk even called his former player “excellent”.
However, perhaps Josh would have been happier playing a role in the Gers’ Premiership success instead and thinking about how much they have progressed under tactician Steven Gerrard, it is understandable why the 27-year-old star may have regrets over departing Ibrox three years ago.
Meanwhile, defender Nikola Katic is fully committed to playing at Rangers next term amid interest from other sides, according to a recent report from the Daily Record.
The outlet has been informed by a source close to the 24-year-old Croatian star that he is “very happy” at Rangers and calls from other outfits aren’t interesting at the moment.
It is said that American-owned Serie A side Spezia are one of the clubs interested in the one-cap Croatia international, who missed all of last term because of a serious knee injury.
Steven Gerrard has too many centre-halves at the moment. Leon Balogun, Filip Helander and Connor Goldson were tremendous last term as the Gers conceded just 13 league goals all campaign and unless any of them leave, fans would expect them to be Gerrard’s first three central defenders.
