Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt says that he is ‘sickened’ that Rangers are set to land two of his side’s key players for nominal fees.
Josh Windass and Matt Crooks are both set to leave Accrington to join Rangers, with the Scottish Championship on the verge of completing pre-contract agreements for the pair, according to The Sun.
Scottish sides are allowed to discuss terms with players in England who have less than six months left on their contract. And Rangers have taken advantage of this ruling to seemingly sign Crooks and Windass, with the pair set to move to Ibrox with Accrington receiving little in the way of compensation for their two prized assets.
Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony spoke out over the deal yesterday, as reported by HITC, and now Stanley owner Holt has given his opinion on the matter publicly.
Crooks and Windass have established reputations as two of the finest players in League Two, and would have commanded sizeable fees had Accrington agreed to a deal in the more common fashion.
Crooks has scored seven goals from a defensive midfield position, while Windass has netted 11 times.
