Josh Windass is looking forward to joining Rangers, according to his father Dean.

Dean Windass has told The Scottish Sun that his son Josh - who is heading to Rangers this summer - thought the recent Old Firm derby against Celtic was 'unbelievable'.

The Gers sit one division below Celtic for now, and were given little chance of beating the Bhoys at Hampden Park as the two fierce rivals met in the Scottish Cup semi-finals last month.

However, Mark Warburton's men served up a superb performance to earn a 2-2 draw over 120 minutes, and then won on penalties to complete a huge cup upset - and give Celtic a glimpse of what may be to come when Rangers return to the top flight next season.

One player who will be involved in those Old Firm clashes next season is Accrington playmaker Josh Windass, who penned a pre-contract agreement with the Gers in January.

The 22-year-old has hit 16 goals in 32 games for Accrington this season, and ahead of his move to Ibrox this summer, he ventured up to Hampden Park to watch Rangers take on Celtic.

Now, his father Dean Windass - who played in the Premier League for the likes of Middlesbrough and Hull City - has been talking about his son's move to Scotland.

Windass admitted to The Scottish Sun that his son thought the Old Firm derby was 'unbelievable', and can't wait to play in those high-pressure situations next season.

"I’ve never been to a Rangers-Celtic derby, so I’m looking forward to watching him in that," said Windass. "Josh was up there recently as he was invited to watch the semi-final. He said it was unbelievable. He’s looking forward to that challenge. He’s not fazed by it, he’s quite a level-headed kid," he added.
