Former Rangers attacker Josh Windass has scored the first goal of the Ange Postecoglou era at Celtic – and it’s sent Gers fans into stitches.
The Parkhead club started their pre-season campaign with a clash against now League One Sheffield Wednesday with the game being played in thirds instead of halves.
A near unrecognisable Celtic side was captained by Albian Ajeti and eventually ran out 3-1 winners amid a host of changes as big Ange kicked off his time as manager with a victory.
But friendly or not, it didn’t stop Rangers fans buckling themselves with laughter that it was former Ibrox forward Josh Windass who scored the first goal of the Aussie coach’s time in charge.
The ex-Accrington Stanley man even gave the Owls the lead after only three minutes:
Surely it's Tony Cascerinos birthday or something…..

Josh Windass doesn’t even know the ingredients of an omelette. But playing starring roles in both Old Firms banter years is eggcellent.

Outspoken and undoubtedly talented, Windass had the ability to both entertain and infuriate during his time at Rangers with many feeling the player’s application wasn’t always 100%.
Despite his hot and cold performances – and a disappointing first season in Scotland – Windass netted an impressive 18 times in season 17/18, including twelve league strikes.
The attacker also managed eight Scottish Premiership assists the same season and there was a feeling that Steven Gerrard and co could turn him into a top player for the Gers.
But ego got the better of Windass who recoiled at the club accepting a £2.5m Wigan offer for his services and left Ibrox before Gerrard even really got started.
Now, the player has reportedly been valued at £5m with one report claiming up to seven clubs are interested in Josh’s services.
