Rangers have signed Accrington Stanley midfielder Josh Windass on a pre-contract.

Former Rangers forward Colin West has been singing the praises of Josh Windass in The Daily Record.

Windass, currently on the books of Accrington Stanley, will join Rangers in the summer after signing a pre-contract with the Scottish Championship side, as reported by BBC Sport.

West, who played for Rangers in the 1980s, is confident that the 21-year-old midfielder will be a success at Ibrox.

“We’ve played against Accrington a few times and I like Windass a lot,” the 53-year-old told The Daily Record. “He’s not got great pace but his movement is excellent. He’s got great technique and he’ll grow as a player. He’s getting better all the time.”

Windass is a talented young midfielder and is only 21 years of age. The Englishman has been on the books of Stanley since 2013 when he joined them from Harrogate Railway Athletic.

The youngster would find it tough to break into the Rangers’ starting lineup rightaway, but he is certainly a player who can be a success in the long term.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 47 points from 19 matches. Mark Warburton’s side are three points clear of second-placed Falkirk and also have a game in hand.
