Dean Windass delivers Twitter message ahead of Celtic v Rangers showdown

By Amir Mir

Dean Windass has tweeted that he is looking forward to his son Josh playing for Rangers against Celtic in their clash at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon.

The two Scottish giants meet for the Old Firm showdown, with a place in the Scottish League Cup final up for grabs.

Former Premier League striker Windass will be watching and hoping his son takes to the field for the Gers against their old rivals.

Brendan Rodgers’ side humiliated their arch enemies 5-1 in their league meeting in September, with Windass jnr playing the full 90 minutes of that game.

Now, his dad has taken to his personal Twitter account ahead of Sunday’s game.

Attacking midfielder Windass has scored one goal in six League Cup and Premiership games this term, but has not started a league game since mid-September.

Mark Warburton’s side will be hoping to repeat the success of last season, when they beat their rivals on penalties in the same competition.

The winner of this tie will take on Aberdeen in the final, with the Dons comfortably beating Greenock Morton 2-0 on Saturday afternoon.
