Kris Commons: Connor Goldson an absolute embarrassment

Kris Commons has torn into Rangers ace Connor Goldson for his comments after the 3-1 loss against Hibs on Sunday.

In their first game of the post-Steven Gerrard era, the Gers suffered a capitulating defeat and Commons was left unimpressed by Goldson’s reaction to going down.

With the score 3-1 at half-time, Commons believed that the game was still very much in the offing and accused the Gers defender of waving white flags and giving up.

In his column in the Scottish Daily Mail (22/11/21, pg 4 of the Verdict), he wrote, “Connor Goldson’s comments after the game yesterday were an absolute embarrassment. He’s supposed to be one of the leaders in this Rangers squad.

“He claimed the match was as good as over at half-time, with Rangers trailing 3-1. Two goals down at half-time and he’s waving the white flags to surrender? Seriously?

“As if that wasn’t bad enough, Goldson also stated that Rangers have lost their hunger from last season. Again, another astonishing admission.

“Listen, we all know Rangers have been below their best this season. But for a senior player to admit it so blatantly speaks volumes about the mentality in this squad right now.”


Commons is clearly showing his Celtic bias and using every opportunity to dunk on Rangers players.

However, it was astonishing to see Goldson saying such things when there was an entire half of football left to play.

It’s shocking that suddenly everyone’s chips are down because Steven Gerrard is no longer at the helm.

This squad is good enough to beat all the teams in Scotland and performances like that are unacceptable.

We’re hoping that the entire dressing room did not share Goldson’s assessment as it will be pretty shocking if that is the case.

Such things cannot keep happening and Giovanni van Bronckhorst needs to put an end to it as soon as possible.
