JOSH Windass says the Gers squad have switched their focus to Ross County after suffering Old Firm defeat.

The 22-year-old doesn’t believe anyone needs to panic after last weekend’s result at Parkhead – a result he thinks was somewhat “false” after Phillipe Senderos’ dismissal.

Windass said he had belief at half-time in the game that Rangers could still grind out a result against their rivals.

He said:

“People could say it’s a reality check, people could say it’s a good lesson but it’s just one defeat at the end of the day.

“It is made worse than it is against your biggest rivals but we’re just going to go into thee Ross County game, try and get the win and carry on to the next one.

“It was quite quiet after the game, not much was said, everyone was down but at 3-1 we were still more than in the game in my opinion but the sending off made the game a bit false, they scored the two goals and it made the scoreline a lot worse.

“It’s been a normal week, the lads are obviously down after the game but training has been fine.

“Monday and Tuesday were a bit of a hangover but we had the day off on Wednesday and then we were back in preparing for Ross County as normal.

“We had analysis meetings on Monday or Tuesday and it was a bad defeat at the weekend but we have to dust ourselves down and take each game as it comes and carry on.

“The goals we conceded were sloppy goals, I wouldn’t say they were on top; it was an even game until half-time.

“The first 15 minutes after we came out for the second-half, when Baz missed a good chance, I thought we were on top in the game and thought we could have got a goal back.

“Scott Sinclair then scored the third goal, which was a sucker punch and then the sending off made the game a bit false.

“I can’t really speak for Scott Brown’s comments, he played reasonably well on the day and fair play to him they beat us but just wait until next time.”

Windass was speaking to the media ahead of Saturday’s Premiership clash and laughed away comments his dad Dean had made to the press about Mark Warburton building the team around his son.

He smiled:

“I’ve told my Dad millions of times not to do interviews but he just does what he wants so he can say what he wants.

“He has his own opinion and he’s not going to come out and say I should be on the bench so it’s just stupid dad comments!”
