Rangers midfielder Josh Windass believes that it would be nothing less than "ridiculous" to write off their chances of winning the Scottish Premiership after just one loss against Celtic.

Mark Warburton's team were handed a footballing lesson by their Old Firm rivals last weekend as they lost 5-1 to the champions at Parkhead in the Premiership.

The criticism post the loss was heavy, though the 22-year-old is taking things in his stride and according to Windass, the game was simply one loss and a win this weekend against Ross County could well help them get back on track.

Windass also took time to rubbish the claim that the loss dealt a body blow to their chances of challenging for the title this season.

"People could say it's a reality check or a good lesson, but it's one defeat at the end of the day. We'll go into Saturday looking for a win", Windass said at a pre-match press conference.  


"The goals we conceded were sloppy goals and I thought we were on top just after half-time before they got their third."

Stressing the confidence that still exists within his team and the wish to do better, the youngster said: "We're five games in so to say we're out of the title race at this stage is a ridiculous statement.

"The confidence is still there.

"We know we still have more to give and can play better."

On a more personal note, Windass added: "Personally it was my first Old Firm and it was an unbelievable game.

"I wish I could play in it every week."
