Former Rangers striker Andy Little has told The Scottish Sun that he thinks Ibrox-bound Josh Windass was 'amazing' during their time together at Accrington Stanley.

Rangers moved to snap up Windass on a pre-contract agreement back in January, with Mark Warburton adding a highly-rated attacking midfielder to his ranks for next season.

The 22-year-old, formerly in the ranks at Huddersfield Town, Windass has become a star at Accrington, firing 17 goals this past season to take Stanley into the League Two play-offs.

The son of former Aberdeen striker Dean Windass, Josh will be heading to Ibrox this summer, and is tipped to have a bright future ahead of him under Warburton.

Now, former Rangers striker Andy Little has given his view on Windass, having played alongside him during a loan spell at Accrington this past season.

Little, 27, spent eight years at Rangers between 2006 and 2014, and having played with Windass at Accrington, he's sent a message to the Gers fans about what to expect.

Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Little has suggested that Windass was 'amazing' during his time at Accrington, and was the main reason he didn't play as much for the League Two outfit.

Little also claims that Windass is confident but not cocky, and feels he should be playing in front of 50,000 fans rather than just 2,500 at Accrington.

"Josh came back from the recent Old Firm game raving about it, saying it was the best atmosphere he’d ever experienced," said Little. "I could tell he was thinking ‘This is my stage’ and ‘Next season I’ll be doing what Barrie McKay did’. That is the kind of attitude he’s got — and what you need to make it at Rangers. He’s been playing in front of 2,500 supporters at Accrington but feels he should be playing in front of 50,000."

"Josh was the main reason why I couldn’t get in the team. He was amazing. He plays just behind the striker but the beauty of him is that he pops up everywhere. He is confident on the verge of cocky but a very nice lad at the same time. At Accrington he had a free licence and he was given the role of winning the game for the team.

"He really embraced and relished that despite being so young. Joining a very good footballing side with a manager who encourages the team to play will suit him down to the ground. Technically he is good, he is skilful and quick. He is very strong as well. He has got it all," he added.
