His deal was confirmed by the club back in January, along with Matt Crooks, both signing on free transfers. The deal angered his old side, because Scottish teams do not have to pay big compensation for snapping up a player under 23 on a free transfer as clubs in England do.
Commenting on Twitter, the 22-year-old said today is his final day in England, indicating he is travelling north of the border to begin the next step in his career.

Windass scored 15 goals and provided five assists for Accrington Stanley in League Two, form which prompted a chase for his signature.
He will be expected to transfer that form to Rangers amid their return to Scotland's top tier, and he evidently is preparing to be settled in his new surroundings ahead of pre-season and hit the ground running.
