Rangers supporters have been in fine voice in the Transfer Tavern in the last few hours after seeing their side get back to winning ways in the Scottish Premiership courtesy of a 2-0 success over Partick Thistle on Tuesday night.
Graeme Murty’s men went into their clash with Alan Archibald’s side off the back of their first defeat of 2018 at the hands of Hibernian on Saturday, a result which saw the Gers slip six points behind second place Aberdeen. Nonetheless, the Scottish giants returned to the winner’s enclosure on Tuesday night as goals either side of half time from Josh Windass and James Tavernier sealed a comfortable win for Murty’s team, thus putting the pressure firmly on Derek McInnes’ Dons ahead of the run in.
Thus, there have been many delighted Rangers fans in the Tavern in recent times, several of whom were happy with their side’s performance on Tuesday night, and are hoping for a repeat when their team travel to Ayr United in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup on Sunday.
There has been much discussion among our resident Gers supporters regarding Tuesday’s victory, not least Windass’ celebration after bagging the opening goal in their 2-0 success.
The 24-year-old attacker put his finger to his lips to shush the Rangers fans when netting his tenth of the campaign on Tuesday night, with the Englishman seemingly responding to criticism for his part in Hibernian’s second goal in the Gers’ loss on Saturday.
And many Rangers supporters have taken to Twitter to express their views on Windass’ celebration, with them seemingly left divided by the gesture…
To be honest Windass scored last night but his actions to Rangers fans was wrong if he has a problem with fans on his back from the stands why is he a footballer its part and parcel of his job abusing him on twitter without tagging him is going to happen

Dissapointed in Windass, we can all understand getting stick isnt nice. The best way to respond is to do what he did before the celebration.
Now we’re all talking about a silly crlebration instead of a really good goal.

If Josh Windass wants to “shoos” the Rangers fans when he scores, or plays well, fine. I want him to shoosh us 5-10 times a game, every game. Problem is, we probably won’t see “the shoosh” again for a very, very long time.
And that’s the problem. pic.twitter.com/WHDhBVwg9c

So let me get this right, there is actually rangers fans justifying windass shooshing fans that travel everywhere and spend hundreds/thousands a year following the team? Unbelievable!

Josh Windass shh is fair enough. The amount of Rangers fans that turn against the team, especially Windass, when things go wrong is awful, quite right to shh them. Should be going to support the players not boo them.

Don’t blame Windass for shushing the rangers fans after most the fan base gave him stick for one bad game

Don’t care what anyone says total disrespect to the fans from Windass. You don’t shush a loyal support who pay your wages. If you can’t take criticism then you aren’t a strong enough character to play for Rangers, simple.
