Rangers fans here in the Tavern are sitting anxiously on the edge of their bar-stools, as they hope that recent controversy won’t have any effect on the rest of the reason.
Life under Graeme Murty couldn’t have been any more perfect, as the Gers were looking to force a second-place finish in the Scottish Premier League. But, after a 2-0 victory in their last outing against Partick Thistle, things seem to have turned sour at Ibrox, as a celebration by Josh Windass was met by a heap of controversy involving both the club and fans. And, there’s been even further developments in the saga, as according to reports in the Scottish Sun, Rangers fan chief has urged Graeme Murty to demand that Windass answers for his actions after telling fans to shut up on Tuesday night.
Rangers star man Josh Windass has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism of late, as fans continue to ridicule the effort levels and consistency of the 24-year-old. But, all of this pressure on the midfielder finally told, as Windass’ goal against Partick Thistle greeted supporters with an unwelcome gesture that’s caused for a pandemonium. And, fans were sent into even more of a frenzy when the Englishman took to his personal Instagram account to post an image of the celebration.
Indeed, Claire Wallace, the General Secretary of the Rangers Supporters’ Association, has called for manager Graeme Murty to sort out the current problems surrounding the Rangers loose cannon, as she had a few words to share:
“Hopefully the manager will speak to him and then it won’t happen again. I don’t think he should be gesturing to his fans in that way.”
“If he wants to shush us in the future then he should just keep scoring goals. The whole situation is quite bizarre because I don’t know what brought it on”
Indeed, it’s believed that the ownership in making a decision and having a talk with Windass will be left entirely down to Murty, as the Rangers hierarchy wish to play no part in the saga involving the midfielder.
Josh Windass’ saga continues to drag on as manager Graeme Murty is still yet to have the chat with the midfielder, something that’s causing for major unrest amongst many in Glasgow. However, everyone awaits the kind of reception the 24-year-old is given when he returns to action for the Bluenoses, as it could cause for quite a hostile environment to be produced at Ibrox. Nevertheless, this is a matter that does need to be sorted out almost immediately, at a crucial time for the Gers in the midst of a battle for second-place with Aberdeen.
