Accrington Stanley's Josh Windass warms up before the match

Josh Windass' permission to train with Rangers this month had recently been disputed. Now as his move to Ibrox nears becoming official, he is mixing with his teammates.

Rangers have published a picture on social media of new signing Josh Windass in full training.

Windass signed for the club in January on a pre-contract agreement along with Accrington Stanley teammate Matt Crooks.

The deals officially go through once their Accrington deals expire on June 30.

Up until last week there had been some doubt as to whether the pair would be able to train with the Gers just yet.

SkySports reported earlier this week that the dispute had since been settled by nature of compensation, and Windass and Crooks had full permission to train with their new team.

Accrington Stanley had been publicly critical of the move because Scottish clubs are not bound by the same compensation agreements as those in England for signing homegrown players at the end of their contracts who are under 23.

It may only be June but it is not long until Rangers' first pre-season friendly, against US side Charleston Battery on July 6.

Rangers then have a League Cup tie against Motherwell as early as July 16, while their first Premiership game is against Hamilton on August 6.
