Dingwall has claimed that the terms of a deal has been settled between Windass and Rangers chiefs and he will put pen to paper this afternoon (Friday).

Manager Graeme Murty admitted at his media briefing yesterday (Thursday) that the club are keen to follow up the new deal given to James Tavernier earlier this week with improved contracts for the likes of Windass and striker Alfredo Morelos.
The Englishman, 24, has been one of Rangers’ outstanding players in recent months and attracted strong interest from clubs south of the border last month.
Football Insider exclusively revealed in the middle of the January window that Rangers were set to offer Windass a new contract after rejecting bids for him from Sheffield United, Preston North End and Wigan Athletic.
Windass still has two-and-a-half years left on his current contract, but the club want to reflect his importance in Murty’s side.
He has developed into a key player after previously struggling to hold down a regular place in the starting XI under former manager Pedro Caixinha.
The former Accrington star has scored 12 goals and supplied eight assists from 30 matches in all competitions this season.
