GRAEME MURTY last night admitted he never knows what he’s going to get with Josh Windass who appeared to shush the Rangers fans after his goal against Partick Thistle.

The Englishman held up a finger to his lips in front of the away support at Firhill just moments after he scored the opener of his side’s 2-0 win.

When on form, Windass is one of Rangers’ most dangerous players, which is why his manager can be left wondering what the player will do next, both good and bad, given his inconsistency.

Murty said: “The delivery and cross in for the first goal was great. But then you need to execute it and Josh has that execution of the highest order.

"And then in the next breath he will do something that makes you scratch your head.

“That’s the bit that he has to get right - that’s the bit that’s going to get him to the next level. That’s the bit he needs to sort out. When he’s top level, he’s great.

“It’s the bit that makes you scratch your head that makes people pause about him.”

When asked about Windass’s celebration, which of course may not have been aimed at the Rangers supporters in a derogatory way, Murty admitted: “I’ll be honest, I didn’t see it. I’ll talk to him about it and ask why he has done it if he has done it.

“But to be perfectly honest I don’t know why Josh does many of the things that he does. I’ll have a chat to him and see what he meant by it eventually.

“He came into the office the other day and talked for 40 minutes about his game. He feels he’s been good, but he wants to be great.

“We talked about his consistency and his level, the things he is great at and about enhancing them. We also spoke about him doing what he does in the back two-thirds of the pitch better, to make him more reliable for the team.

“Once he does that, I’ve no doubt lots of teams will look at him.

“But let’s talk about the goals. The goals were outstanding. I thought at times we really showed a cutting edge and incisiveness which pleased me.

“Today you saw glimpses of what we are about - both good and bad. I want to see the good stuff more often and when we do it will confirm we are on the right path.’

James Tavernier got the crucial second just four days after he rashly conceded a penalty against Hibs which meant the Easter Road men won for the second time at Ibrox this season.

Murty said: “That six for James this season. He is a great modern attacking full back. He has terrific quality in the final third and is an outstanding finisher as we saw.

“We see that in training all the time and it was a bit special to see it tonight.”
