Josh Windass left Rangers in 2018.
Windass joined Wigan Athletic in the Championship in England from Rangers for a transfer fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £2.5 million.
The 26-year-old English midfielder was on the books of Rangers from the summer of 2016 until the summer of 2018.
The former Accrington Stanley star has said that his teammates and ex-teammates at his English clubs think that Rangers and Celtic play in a pub league.
Windass has also said that he is sure that his teammates and ex-teammates at English teams would sign for Rangers or Celtic if they got the chance.
The Scottish Sun quotes Windass as saying: “The atmosphere is way better in Scotland, especially in the Old Firm.
“Even at Hibs and Hearts away to be honest. They are better atmospheres than down in England, 100 per cent. I’ve had so many arguments with boys in English teams about that standard in Scotland.
“They have no idea. They genuinely think it’s a pub league. They would all sign for Rangers or Celtic at the drop of the hat if they got the opportunity.”
Football in Scotland is suspended at the moment due to the global health crisis, and it is not clear when the season will resume.
Celtic are 15 points clear at the the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment, but Rangers have a game in hand and there are also two Old Firm derbies left to be played.
