Josh Windass has a Rangers future and we may have found his best position says Pedro Caixinha


Rangers gaffer Pedro Caixinha insists Josh Windass is in his long-term plans as he told how he believes the midfielder has discovered his best position.

Windass was linked with a move away from Ibrox this summer, with Rotherham among those keeping tabs.

But Caixinha believes a more confident Windass can be an asset for his squad.

Windass himself urged Caixinha to play him in a more advanced role this season. And, buoyed an impressive showing in the weekend’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday, Caixinha could be abut to oblige.

Speaking to RangersTV , the manager said: “Josh is a nice boy and a very good player, with huge potential. We just need to work with him on the mental side in order for him to have more self confidence and to believe more in himself.

“We’re looking for him to have a more regular state of play and we want more from him.

“He played more in the wide area and I think it suits him better changing the pattern of playing wide and helping inside, playing between the lines and more connections with the strikers and central midfielders.

“That is what Josh can give to us and he is doing really well and is going to help us definitely and will make sure that the team and squad is more competitive by having more options for us.”

Happy with his charges after Sunday’s away victory, Caixinha believes things are starting to gel.

And, he also told how he can see the spirit in his ranks is improving.

He continued: “I think that one of the ways you see the spirit that a squad has on the pitch is when the team celebrates a goal

“If you watched the game on RangersTV then you can see from the way that we celebrated the second goal that the squad are gaining in confidence and spreading that to each other.”

“We have options everywhere now and that’s the main reason why we wanted to start to build the squad and to build that competitiveness.

“It’s true that the guys who are playing in the starting eleven just now are doing really well just now, which means that the guys who are fighting for a position need to keep pushing.

“That’s the competitiveness we want. We have the squad we designed and built and we know that we have the squad that we asked for. We are really pleased with all of the work and effort that the boys have been putting in so far.”
