JOSH AND MATT OFF TO IBROX

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

AC­CRING­TON Stan­ley mid­field­ers Josh Win­dass and Matt Crooks have both signed pre-con­tract agree­ments with Scot­tish gi­ants Glas­gow Rangers.

Win­dass, who turned 22 yes­ter­day, and Crooks, 21, will move to the Scot­tish Cham­pi­onship lead­ers on four-year con­tracts at the end of the sea­son when their cur­rent con­tracts end.

Stan­ley will be en­ti­tled to com­pen­sa­tion, though un­happy boss John Cole­man said:“See­ing the play­ers had tweeted about ‘buzzing to play for a mas­sive club’ is dis­re­spect­ful to our fans. Our fans have backed them through thick and thin and I do think there should be more re­spect in place.”
