first_imgAccrington Stanley pair Josh Windass and Matt Crooks are travelling to Glasgow in order to try and complete January moves to Rangers.The duo, who are out of contract at the end of the season, are set to travel to Scotland after agreeing personal terms with the Ibrox side.Both were expected to make the move this summer but now Mark Warburton’s men may speed up the transfer as they aim to win promotion to the Scottish Premiership.Should the players move in this transfer window then the English League Two side would secure a transfer fee rather than training compensation, if the duo moved on pre-contract deals at the end of the season. “They’ve come a long way at this club, since they’ve been at Accrington it’s transformed them. I don’t like the way the rules are set out.“I don’t like the way Rangers have gone about this, not picking the phone up to (Accrington manager) John Coleman. It’s not illegal but it’s not the way it should be done.”Should Accrington Stanley sell the players in January, they would stand to receive 1.5% of all of the future fees paid for Windass in any transfer in his career, and 0.5% of any future fees paid for Crooks. Harry Forrester and goalkeeper Maciej Gostomski have already joined the Light Blues in the January transfer window.Accrington owner Andy Holt expressed his displeasure at the Scottish side and FIFA transfer regulations, telling the Lancashire Telegraph: “It’s ridiculous. We could lose them for free and Rangers could resell them and take any profit. They could sell them back to England if they wanted to.“Because they’re getting them for free they can offer wages that other team can’t offer.“It’s not about the lads’ rights to earn a living, I respect that and I like them. It’s about what’s right and what’s wrong.last_img
