Josh Windass has revealed to Wigan Athletic’s official website that it was not easy for him to leave Rangers.

The 24-year-old midfielder was on the books of Rangers for the past two seasons and played well.

Although the Englishman had issues with consistency, he was a class act when he was on swing.

The former Accrington Stanley star has admitted that it was not easy for him to leave Rangers in the summer transfer window.

Windass told Wigan’s official website: “It wasn’t an easy decision to make to be honest because I’ve been playing a lot at Rangers, but I spoke to the manager this morning when I got the call and I felt the best thing was to come here to try and prove myself and get this team up the league.”

Meanwhile, Josh Windass’s father, Dean Windass, has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his take on the midfielder leaving Rangers for Wigan this summer.
