Rangers flop launches audacious bid to bring former Ibrox star to South America


Bid officially launched as Rangers reunion eyed in South America

Ex-Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has revealed that he is genuinely interested in taking former Ibrox winger Josh Windass to Argentina with his new club launching a bid.

The Portuguese coach is now in charge of Argentine club Tallares de Cordoba and has been addressing claims that Caixinha could look to take Windass to South America.

Remarkably, it’s something that Caixinha – who has also managed in Portugal, Mexico and the Middle East – is genuinely considering.

More than this, Tallares have actually launched a bid for the attacker in what might prove a once in a lifetime opportunity for Windass to move to Argentina to play football.

“I’ve kept in touch with Josh since when I had him at Rangers,” Caixinha told La Voz, via Football Scotland.

“He is a player that we know and that we always follow. He has the profile we are looking for for one of the extremes.

“He is straight, but he can also play behind the ‘9’ and also from outside to inside. He was a player that we proposed to Andrés when we were analysing player options for that position.

“He, his representative and the club his pass belongs to (Sheffield Wednesday) have been contacted. Now it is a matter of negotiations, which is not up to me to carry out.

“What I can say is that an offer has been made and that it may be a possibility, but nothing is defined.”

Pedro Caixinha targets Josh Windass Rangers reunion

Josh Windass is coming off the back of a heavily disrupted season with the Owls which has been blighted with a series of injuries.

An undoubtedly talented player, at 28 the versatile attacker is coming into an important juncture in his career and this move is something Windass might seriously consider.

Windass’ most productive stint at Rangers came during the season Pedro Caixinha was at the club, where he scored 18 goals in the 17/18 season.

Blighted with apparent attitude problems during his time with Rangers, the attacker was polarising and has previously admitted he has regrets about leaving for Wigan in 2018.

But could Pedro Caixinha offer Josh the chance to reignite his career in a Rangers reunion no-one seen coming only a few weeks ago?

Meanwhile, a former Rangers star has sparked Ibrox return rumours with a message on social media.
