Rangers welcomed Hibernian to Ibrox on Saturday afternoon looking to continue their cracking run of form in the league.

Steven Gerrard made one change to his side, welcoming back Leon Balogun into the defence in place of Filip Helander.

Before the game, Gerrard admitted that he wanted his defence to have more pace to deal with the likes of Kevin Nisbet.


Conor Goldson kept his spot once again, and it appears that he is the clear number one choice defender for the Bears now.

The former Brighton man had the crazy winds to deal with at Ibrox, meaning his long-range passing will have been put to the test.

A large percentage of his diagonal switches appeared to fly straight out of play – something that happens nearly every single week when watching the Gers.

According to WyScout, Goldson is only accurate with 54.7% of his long passes, which is starting to get recognised by the fans.

The defender had clear chances to open the scoring in the first half, and instead of making fans forget about his fragile start, he was denied by a stubborn Hibs defence.

Thankfully, Ianis Hagi did open the scoring, and it proves that we should be leaving the finishing to those in the final third, rather than Goldson.


Many Rangers fans have started to get frustrated with Goldson, claiming that he needs to be calmer in possession, especially with the Light Blues dominating the ball in nearly every game they play.

The majority have claimed that his skill on the ball is nothing short of “abysmal” and were shocked that he didn’t find the back of the net with his chances.
