Rangers sold Josh Windass to Wigan Athletic back in August for an undisclosed fee, with the 25-year-old signing a three-year-deal at the newly promoted Championship side.

So far,
the Albanian has struggled to make an impact, but, until recently, Windass had done little to suggest Rangers had made the wrong decision. 
In his first 25 Championship appearances this campaign, he had only two goals and two assists to show for his efforts.
Many Rangers fans weren’t convinced by the 25-year-old during his time in Glasgow.

A perceived bad attitude and a lack of consistency saw him regularly come under fire.
However, he did amass 18 goals last season, which is a sizeable haul.

Over the last few weeks at Wigan, he has finally started to recapture some of that form.
In netting away at Nottingham Forest at the end of last month, Windass got his name on the scoresheet for the first time since October.
Furthermore, he took that form and confidence into the weekend.
Latching on to a flick on from Leon Clarke, he raced through and tucked away a finish that put his side on the way to a 2-1 win over QPR.

Four goals in 27 league appearances are hardly the sort of numbers that will have Gerrard ruing what might have been.

However, the last fortnight serves as a reminder of Windass’ abilities.
No matter how unpopular he was with sections of the fans, at this point, it’s hard to argue that by letting him go and bringing in Grezda, Rangers are better off.
