Josh Windass father delivers Twitter verdict on antics in Rangers v Aberdeen
Rangers star Josh Windass’ father – Hull City legend and Sky Sports pundit Dean – got involved after his son was hammered by a Celtic fan on Twitter for his “embarrassing” dive against Aberdeen – and agreed with it.
The Rangers attacker went to ground looking for a penalty in the first few minutes of the 2-1 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie, only to earn a yellow card for simulation from referee Willie Collum.
After he was punished for his antics, Windass went on to grab the Gers’ second goal – minutes after Ryan Jack was sent off – and secure a huge win for Graeme Murty’s side which saw them leapfrog the Dons into second place in the Scottish Premiership.
After originally Tweeting a foul-mouthed attack on Scottish referees after Jack’s dismissal, Windass Sr. was asked if he thought Josh’s dive was more “embarrassing” than the standard of officiating.
“What about your son’s dive in the first half? Surely that’s more embarrassing than rotten refs!” Windass was asked by a Hoops fan on his personal Twitter account
“Agree,” Windass said in response.

The strike was Josh’s fourth in his last six games after a drastic improvement in the former Accrington star’s form.
The Gers will be hoping Windass can continue his purple patch when Owen Coyle’s Ross County visit Ibrox on Saturday afternoon in the Scottish Premiership.
The 23-year-old is under contract at Ibrox until 2020.
Sunday’s win means the Light Blues now trail league leaders Celtic by seven points after playing one game more than Brendan Rodgers’ side.
The two sides are due to play on December 30th in the final round of fixtures before the Scottish Premiership’s winter break.
