Like a lot of football fans in Scotland, Windass was apparently taking in tonight’s Champions League match between Neymar’s PSG and Rangers’ bitter rivals Celtic.
And when he chimed in with a critique of how well the Brazilian keeps the ball – or how easily he gives it away – Gers supporters on social media soon pointed out that perhaps the pot was calling the kettle black:
When Neymar gives it away he jus trots back ?? not a care in the world

I wish I didn’t have a care in the world. Unfortunately watching you masquerade as a footballer every week isn’t good for my blood pressure.

It’s probably fair to say that Rangers’ fanbase would be over the moon if Windass looked a bit more like Neymar when he pulled on the club’s iconic blue jersey every week.
Rangers are back in action against Dundee on Friday night – and we’ll be waiting with bated breath to find out if Windass has somehow managed to transform his game.
What do you think of the tweet?
