Josh Windass Says He Should Never Have Been Sold By Rangers to Wigan

Josh Windass has said he should never have been sold by Rangers to Wigan Athletic – apparently contradicting the version of events put forward by Steven Gerrard.

Windass was a surprise departure from Ibrox back in August, with Wigan succeeding in a deadline day swoop for the 24-year-old, and Gerrard claiming at the time that Windass had asked to speak to the English Championship side.

However, the former Accrington Stanley midfielder doesn’t seem to remember things in the same way – and even went as far as to say Rangers should have kicked-out Wigan’s bid for him.

Speaking during an interview with talkSPORT, via the Sun, Windass explained: “It was a strange one. I was just about to get on the bus before the Maribor game and I got a text from someone I knew saying that Wigan have put a bid in and Rangers have accepted it.

“I don’t think it should have been accepted.

“I just got my stuff off the bus and drove down to Wigan to see what they had to say.

“The manager told me I would be playing out wide and I prefer playing down the middle. For the sake of my own career I needed to play in a position where I can affect the game a lot more.

“I think playing out wide I wouldn’t really have scored the goals for Rangers in that position. In the past I haven’t really scored from playing out wide.

“I don’t think the offer should have been accepted by the board but it is what it is and I’m happy to be where I am now.”

Windass often endured an up-and-down time as a Rangers player, but undoubtedly showed regular flashes of quality during his two years in Scottish football.

What do you make of his comments? Did Rangers perhaps let him go a bit too quickly?
