JOSH WINDASS has agreed a contract extension with Rangers until 2021 – and has now set his sights on scoring 20 goals this season.

The midfielder has already claimed 12 strikes and is eager to add to the total when the Ibrox club take on Hamilton Accies tomorrow afternoon.

Windass said: “I feel I have been played in the position I like to play in and I feel I have improved in terms of goals and assists.

“I want to hit 20 goals, so, hopefully, I can get that before the end of the campaign. It’s a big ask, but, hopefully, I can do it.

“You have always got to improve, even on your strengths.

“I look to improve my weaknesses, too, every day on the training pitch and I’ll be looking to do that towards the end of the season.

“The manager, Graeme Murty, has shown the belief in me that I always had in myself. Hopefully, we can carry our relationship on and push the club forward together.

“I always feel I have been able to play well under any circumstances, but the gaffer has come in and shown a lot of belief in me, which I really appreciate.”

Preston had a £500,000 bid for Windass rejected in December, while other English Championship sides Leeds United and Sheffield United were linked with the 24-year-old star who was bought from Accrington Stanley for £60,000 in 2016.
