Former Bantams star Windass declared bankrupt

By Tom Connell

Former Bradford City striker Dean Windass has been declared bankrupt.

The Bankruptcy and Companies High Court in London heard the 47-year-old owed the taxman more than £150,000.

Hull-born Windass did not appear at the hearing on Monday and was not represented by a lawyer.

Windass, who made 216 appearances during his two spells with the Bantams, had the extent of his debt revealed back in October during a preliminary hearing.

Registrar Stephen Baister granted an application by a lawyer representing HM Revenue & Customs.

The former player’s non-essential assets will now be used to pay off his debts.

He scored more than 200 career goals and played a pivotal role in the promotion of both Hull City and Bradford to England’s top tier. He also played for Middlesbrough and Sheffield United.

His 22-year-old son Josh now plays for Rangers.
