We’ve told you previously how Windass has been at the centre of speculation this summer, and now it appears he’ll be heading south on English football’s transfer deadline day, after Steven Gerrard’s side accepted a bid of around £2.5 million.
Told that Josh Windass is currently en route to Wigan to hold talks with the championship side. Understand Rangers have accepted a bid of 2.5m + add-ons. Wigan appear to have have stolen a march on Ipswich.

Windass has endured something of an up-and-down relationship with the Gers support, and we’ve told you on several occasions how he’s been involved in Twitter spats with various different supporters.
And now it seems his two-year stay in Glasgow is coming to an end, and it’s difficult to work out if there’s many fans that are bothered:
You – Windass is awful. Hope he never plays us again.
Also you – £2m for Windass? Shocking business.

If the Declan John fee is only 750k and the deal for Windass is only 2 million then we are completely under valuing yet again

Josh Windass – shame it hasn't worked out as he's a player (technically). Upstairs, he seems to think he's made it and has questionable mentality – he's simply not the full package we need.
£2.5m plus add ons for a guy that was £100k (that Gerrard doesn't fancy)?
Yes from me.

Might be one of the few, but a wouldn't say 2.5mill is enough for windass 🙄 might no be the most consistent a players & can be frustrating, but his stats last season speaks for itself.

Windass can go, tav canny

Why let Windass go. Best technical player at Rangers. And it’s only for 2 million? Terrible business. 😞

Hope we have a replacement for Windass. Not easy to replace his goals and assists from last season.

Can't wait to get 800 thousand from the windass deal next year after he's sold for 8 million

Here comes the rangers da's who wanted windass out the door actually panicking now as windass walks out the door

With Windass away it'll be interesting to see who we get to replace him, exciting times.
On the other hand, Andrew Dickson should get his bollocks in a vice for sanctioning £2M and McGinn goes to villa for £4M with a year left on his contract…. mon tae!

Do you think Rangers will miss Windass if he does indeed leave today? And, having signed 12 players already this summer, will Gerrard insist upon replacing him?
