MATT CROOKS and Josh Windass are free to begin training with Rangers after the Ibrox outfit agreed compensation with the duo’s former club Accrington Stanley, the League Two club have announced.
The news comes just a day after Windass branded Accrington as “petty” for refusing to let them train with Mark Warburton’s side before June 30.
The duo signed pre-contracts with Rangers in January before finishing the season with Accrington.
An Accrington statement read: “Accrington Stanley and Rangers have agreed compensation terms for the move of Matt Crooks and Josh Windass to Ibrox.
“The pair are now released from their obligations with the Reds and free to head north of the border to train with their new club.
“Everyone at the Wham Stadium would like to thank Matt and Josh for their service in Stanley colours and wish them all the best for the next stage in their career.”
Meanwhile, transfer target Niko Kranjcar is set to arrive in Glasgow for a medical on Wednesday.
The Croatian midfielder’s lawyer Emil Zgur told BBC Scotland that the 31-year-old wants a return to Europe for a ‘fresh challenge’.
Kranjcar had spells at Tottenham, QPR and Dynamo Kiev and has just left New York Cosmos.
Club captain Lee Wallace has also extended his contract at the club, signing until May 2019.
