Preston North End's attempt to prise Josh Windass away from Ibrox has been blocked by Rangers, Sky Sports reported on Friday.

The broadcaster claimed Preston offered £500,000 for the former Accrington player, who is enjoying arguably his best campaign for Rangers.

North End already appear to have got one over Rangers this winter, after agreeing a deal for Louis Moult - a rumoured Ibrox target - of Motherwell.

And losing their second top scorer to Deepdale would be a definite blow to Graeme Murty's side.

The speculation has drawn a mixed reaction from Preston fans, although some are especially keen for a deal to go ahead, after Rangers robbed them of Joe Garner - a fan favourite in Lancashire - 18 months ago.

Here's how the PNE faithful have reacted on Twitter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Windass missed Rangers' 2-0 win against Motherwell on Wednesday though suspension, but is free to return for Saturday's Old Firm trip to Celtic.

The 23-year-old, whose father is former Hull City striker Dean Windass, is reported to have cost the Ibrox side £60,000.
