Dean Windass explains one difference between himself and son Josh that will benefit Glasgow Rangers

Rangers FC

The Accrington Stanley midfielder is tee-total.

Glasgow Rangers are already planning for the future it would appear with the agreement to sign Josh Windass from Accrington Stanley already in place for the summer.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder will join Rangers at the end of his Accrington contract in the summer, along with team-mate Matt Crooks.

Of course Windass has a famous old man.

Dean Windass is perhaps best known for his latter career heroics with Hull City. The former Middlesbrough and Bradford City man is now retired and had something of a reputation in the game.

In fact he struggled deeply with a drinking problem and in January 2012 spoke candidly to the Mirror about his problems with the booze, especially after retiring from the game.

But speaking to BBC Radio Leeds the former Hull City hero was in good spirits and suggested alcohol will not be a problem for Rangers regarding his son - who has just undergone a double hernia operation:

"He's just had a double hernia, just come out of theater. He's a bit sore but the kids these days they are all tee-total.

"He's a good kid, he's a good footballer. He has got a great move, with Glasgow Rangers back on the up now financially as well I am sure they will get back in the Scottish Premier League.

"Like I said he is tee-total. He can't be my son."

Rangers are currently top of the Scottish Championship and although Hibernian are breathing down their necks they still look set to be on their way back to the top-flight of Scottish football.

In Windass Jr Rangers have managed to bring a focused and naturally gifted player to Ibrox who will hopefully help them back to the top of the Scottish game.
