Rangers Super Fans react as Connor Goldson pens new three-year deal
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Rangers Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Ibrox. You can join in the discussion on our Rangers Insider Facebook page.
Rangers fans are happy to hear that English centre-back Connor Goldson has signed a new three-year deal to extend his Ibrox stay beyond the end of next season.
According to the Daily Record, the 28-year-old agreed to a new contract days ago after talks between his representatives and sporting director Ross Wilson, and an official announcement is expected this week.
Goldson will become one of the highest earners at Rangers once the deal is in place, ending rumours linking him with an Ibrox exit with just 12 months remaining on his running contract.
We asked our esteemed panel of Rangers Super Fans over on Facebook how they feel about the news, and here is how they reacted:
Goldson can sign a pre-contract with a new club in January should his contract situation remain the same, but it appears Rangers have quickly moved to hand him an improved deal, and he deserves it.
He played in every minute of the Scottish Premiership campaign last season, forming a key part of a Gers defence that shipped just 13 goals in 38 games and kept 26 clean sheets.
English clubs would love to bring the former Brighton and Hove Albion man back to England, and it is clear to see why.
We need his services in the peak years of his career, though, and we cannot wait for an official confirmation of his reported new deal.
With the chance to play Champions League football on the cards, Goldson would be keen to impress should Rangers reach the group stages in a bid to grab the attention of the England national teams selectors.
Steven Gerrard’s men punched above their weights in the Europa League last season, showing detractors that the Scottish Premiership should never be belittled, and playing in Europe’s elite competition and reaching the knock-out stages would surely attract attention to the likes of Goldson and co.
