JOSH Windass says his Ibrox debut confirmed to him why he chose to join Rangers in January.
The 22-year-old is nursing a hamstring injury and hoping to be fit to face Hamilton next weekend, after sitting our Gers friendly against Burnley,but says he will feel no pressure in front of a full house at Ibrox.
Windass started his first game for the Gers against Annan at the famous stadium and admits it was the experience he had been waiting for.
“My Ibrox debut was a little bit different to Accrington! The stadium is amazing when you walk out and when Simply the Best is playing the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
“That is the reason I signed, people know I could have gone to other clubs but none of the other clubs who wanted me were as big as Rangers so that’s the reason I came here.
“I don’t really get nervous or feel pressure, it doesn’t bother me.
“Ibrox is like nothing I have ever experienced before, I had played at Elland Road in front of about 20,000 but to have 30,000 in my first game was incredible.
“The fans have already been unbelievable towards me and the crowds so far have been brilliant but I can’t wait for a full house at Ibrox.”
Windass is working to be fit for the start of the league season and while he is aware of the huge competition in the Gers midfield he remains relaxed about his place in the side.
The midfielder lauded Mark Warburton’s style of play which he says means any player can slot into the Light Blues line-up.
“I don’t feel I have any direct competition because a lot of the lads can play in two or three different positions so I don’t really look at an individual player and think he is my competition.
“It doesn’t matter too much in terms of personnel because everybody fits the style of play so as long as I’m contributing when I am playing then that is all that matters.”
