Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has claimed his side’s second-half performance in the win over Maribor was the best since he arrived in Glasgow – whilst claiming Josh Windass was keen to head back down south.
The Gers gaffer watched from the sidelines as his team secured a vital 3-1 victory over the Slovenians in the Europa League third-round qualifiers at Ibrox, just hours after midfielder Windass had left for Wigan Athletic in a deal worth around £2.5 million.
Steven Gerrard says tonight’s second-half performance in their 3-1 win over Maribor is the ‘best we’ve seen’ since he took over.
He also says Josh Windass ‘made it clear’ he wanted to speak to Wigan today, and believes James Tavernier is ‘English Premier League quality’. pic.twitter.com/jbwEmh1s5t

Understandably, Gerrard was delighted after watching Alfredo Morelos, James Tavernier and Lassana Coulibaly find the back of the net under the Ibrox floodlights, and he was keen to sing his players’ praises after full-time.
And he also elaborated on Windass’s shock exit, and supporters might be keen to hear his take on the surprise transfer.
How much of a loss do you think Windass could prove to be to Rangers? And how impressive were they in the win over Maribor?
