Despite reports linking him with a move back to England, Josh Windass has vowed to stay at Glasgow Rangers and fight for his place, according to The Express.
Queens Park Rangers and Rotherham United are among the interested parties but the Rangers midfielder wants to stay in Scotland.
Windass moved to Rangers from Accrington Stanley on a pre-contract agreement last summer but has had a disappointing start to life north of the border.
The 23-year-old played just 27 games in all competitions last season with 17 starts.
This led to speculation that he might be leaving during this summer transfer window as reports linked him with a return to England.
However, following his goal scoring display in a pre-season friendly victory over Sheffield Wednesday, Josh Windass has pledged his future to Rangers and insisted that he will remain at the club and fight for his place.
The former Accrington Stanley star, who is the son of Dean Windass, said:
“Unless you are signing for Manchester United or Real Madrid – which at the moment doesn’t look that likely – I don’t think there is anywhere better to play football than at this massive football club.
“It is better than a lot of clubs down in England.
“I think I have been linked with every club down in England for the last two weeks but my mind has been firmly fixed on playing for Rangers and getting in this team.
“Every season is a big season.
“I always knew that if I played in the position I was most comfortable in I could get goals and create chances.
“I’ve not really had much chance to do that here but I have had opportunities in pre-season, so hopefully I can carry it on.”
Josh Windass will be hoping to carry his pre-season form into the new campaign as Rangers look to push further up the league table.
The Scottish Premiership outfit have already suffered a premature exit from this season’s Europa League so their sole focus will be on chasing down Celtic at the top of the table.
Josh Windass is at a vital stage in his development.
Aged 23, the creative midfielder really needs to start playing on a more regular basis at Rangers or leave to pursue his career elsewhere.
If he does get chances at Rangers, then it is a good place for him to learn and develop but if not, he will have to seek the exit door in January.
I’m sure plenty of English clubs in the second and third tier will remain interested.
