Josh Windass has told Rangers official website that his first goal for the club was the easiest he has ever scored.

Windass is one of nine new face at Ibrox this summer in what has been a busy summer transfer window for Mark Warburton.

He has featured in several of their games so far in pre-season, but was yet to register an official competitive goal for the Gers.

That ended on Friday as he scored the second goal in the 3-0 BetFred Cup win over East Stirlingshire.

And he admits it was probably the easiest goal he has ever scored, although much of it was down to luck.

“It was probably the easier goal I’ve ever scored. No natural instinct just luck!” he told the club’s official website.

“I haven’t been frustrated but I am glad it has come tonight, I know it’s easy to say that but I was disappointed after the game on Tuesday and tonight I got the goal and we got a win.”

Mark Warburton will now be hoping there are more goals to come from Windass as they look to make a big impact next season.

The Blues don’t have a number of striker options available to them, and will need everyone in the squad contributing if they are to compete with Celtic for the title.

Windass has already shown he has an eye for goal and will be keen to add more to his collection after his first goal on Friday.
