A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club confirmed on their official website on Thursday that Josh Windass has left the Gers after two years at Ibrox.
There has been much speculation about the attacking midfielder's future throughout the summer, but the rumours seemed to ramp up a few levels in the final days of the English transfer window.
And it has now been confirmed by the club that Windass has swapped Rangers for Championship newbies Wigan Athletic. STV reported ahead of the deal being confirmed that the Latics will pay an initial £2.5 million plus add-ons for the 24-year-old.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the news has received a mixed reaction from the Rangers fans. There are plenty who are extremely disappointed to see Windass leave off the back of a campaign where he scored 18 goals in all competitions and finished the season as the joint top goalscorer.
Several supporters have suggested that it is a major mistake to let him go for the fee that Wigan have reportedly paid. His form has not always been the most impressive, but he is clearly a quality player and replacing him is going to be a tough task for Steven Gerrard in the remaining weeks of the window.
However, some have suggested that Rangers have made the right move getting rid of Windass. The playmaker seemed to completely divide opinion while he was playing for the Gers, and it is safe to say that he has divided the supporters now that he has left for Wigan.
Here is the best of the reaction to the news that Windass has gone...

Totally gutted that @WindassJnr has left along with @declanjohn7 2 brilliant players for @RangersFC let go too soon and for too little money. I bet both will be bounced on to even bigger clubs for lots more money in a year or 2 just as others have. All the best guys ⚪️ #RFC— Paul McHugh #Bionics (@pamchugh1) August 9, 2018
Cant sell your top goal scorer and expect to win the league. Hopefully he can be replaced— Allan Stewart (@allanbstewart1) August 9, 2018
Just the 18 goals and numerous assists need replacing now. Hopefully we have something lined up to do this— Neil Cowan (@neiljbcowan) August 9, 2018
Absolutely shocking business from Rangers! Who sanctions these deals? Who in the current team is going to get 18 goals and 10plus assists? Thought we would have learnt our lesson selling Barrie McKay so cheap, but with his stats, age and contract he was on, the fee is abysmal!— Del Boy (@Do_The_Turtle) August 9, 2018
18 goals double figure assists not happy with this decision— Glen Grant (@Glen1313) August 9, 2018
