Rangers boss Mark Warburton has spoken out on speculation the Gers are keen on signing Accrington Stanley midfielder Josh Windass, son of Hull City legend Dean.

Windass, 21, has impressed in League Two with Accrington this term and he has been mooted as a potential signing for Rangers.

But while Warburton does not doubt Windass is a talented player, he has done his best to dampen speculation over a swoop.

Warburton does though admit that his side are always looking for potential additions and are doing their best to build up a database of talented players.

"One of many players. One of our scouts might have gone and watched a game or one of their scouts might have been at one of our games – it's just how football works", the Englishman told a press conference.


"Our net is always looking. We're looking for players who add value here and hopefully that database increases.

"I haven't seen much of him. He's a very talented player I'm sure. I've met his dad on a few occasions, but nothing more than that", the Rangers boss added.

Rangers are expected to make additions to their squad in the winter transfer window, which opens in less than a month, as they aim to continue to shape their squad for an expected return to the top tier of Scottish football next season.
