Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers drew 0-0 in Saturday's Old Firm derby.
Rangers fans have criticised Josh Windass for his performance in Saturday's 0-0 draw away to Celtic.
The 23-year-old has been the subject of interest from Preston North End this week, with the Championship side lodging a bid for his services.
And perhaps the speculation over his future acted as something of a distraction as the Rangers attacker failed to reach the standard he has been setting under Graeme Murty.
Murty has been using him as a number 10 since taking over from axed manager Pedro Caixinha in October, but the 43-year-old shifted Windass out to the left to faciliate Niko Kranjcar in a decision which did not really work for either.
And fans of the Ibrox club have expressed their disappointment with the duo - particularly Windass - on Twitter afterwards.
Windass was poor today. Hate him being shoved out wide though— Cheryl (@gers_chick) December 30, 2017
Have a bad feeling that this was Josh Windass’s last game for Rangers #WATP— RTID (@SponsorBreakRFC) December 30, 2017

9 men......Windass played like the Windass we all know, he was honking— sunshinekid (@sunshinekid10) December 30, 2017
It was a better point for Rangers than it was for Celtic, but the Gers could and probably should have scored at least one in the second half, with Alfredo Morelos missing a couple of great chances.
Still, the gap remains 11 points between the sides, but the fact it could've been 14 is perhaps a reason to be cheerful.
