Josh Windass has admitted that he has spoken to Andy Little as he prepares for his imminent move to Rangers, and explained what the former Gers forward told him about the Ibrox club, the Evening Times reports.

The attacking midfielder agreed a pre-contract deal with the Light Blues midway through this past season, and the Evening Times suggests that he is set to join up with Mark Warburton's squad in the coming days as they continue their preparations for their return to the Scottish Premiership.

And with League Two being the highest level that the 22-year-old has played at to date, it is perhaps unsurprising that he has looked to speak to those who have an idea of what playing for Rangers is like.

One of the people that he has spoken to is Little. The 27-year-old spent some of this past season on loan with Windass' former club Accrington Stanley, but had previously been a part of the Gers squad that began the journey from the doldrums of the bottom tier before his departure in 2014.

And Windass explained what the Northern Irishman instructed him to do to get the supporters on side for his new club.

"I have spoken to Andy Little a lot as well, he is a really good guy. He was saying it is a bit of a goldfish bowl so you need to be careful," he told the Evening Times.

"But he was telling me how good it is at Rangers and he loved it at the club. He told me to enjoy it and that if I get my head down and work hard then the fans will take to me.

"That is the aim for me. I can't wait to get started and to I'm really looking forward to the new season."

Though Little's time as a first-team regular came when the club were coming up against a lesser standard of opposition, he would have had to have dealt with a huge level of expectation with everyone expecting the side to get promoted with no issues whatsoever.

And with the spotlight likely to be firmly placed on Warburton's team during their first campaign back in the top flight, Little's advice on how to cope with the pressure could be invaluable as Windass looks to adjust to the step-up as quickly as possible.
