Rangers: Connor Goldson tipped to leave Ibrox this summer

A concerning Rangers transfer claim has been made over Ibrox centre-back Connor Goldson’s future in Glasgow…

What’s the talk?

Gers journalist Chris Jack has claimed that the central defender will be on his way out of the club at the end of the season if he wants to go back down south of the border to his home country.

He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think the timing is probably right. If Connor fancies another crack at England, it’s going to be this summer.”

Will Goldson leave in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Devastation

Gio van Bronckhorst will surely be devastated by this news as Jack is suggesting that Goldson is likely to be on his way out at the end of his current deal in June.

He has featured in every single match for the Dutch head coach in the Premiership and Europa League since the ex-Feyenoord man came in to replace Steven Gerrard so his loss will be seismic.

In fact, he has only missed one game in the league all season and that came against St. Johnstone back in September.

This highlights his importance to the team in terms of his availability. He has consistently been fit and ready to play since van Bronckhorst arrived at Ibrox and that has made him a reliable, steady, figure to build around at the heart of the defence.

His performances have also been excellent. Goldson has averaged a SofaScore rating of 7.12 in the Premiership, with Rangers keeping 14 clean sheets in his 29 appearances. He has won a whopping 68% of his individual duels in the competition, showing that he has been a dominant force at the back for the Gers throughout the campaign as he has got the better of opposition forwards more often than not.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

The English defender has also built up strong relationships on the pitch. He has played alongside ten current Rangers players in 116 or more matches, including four of them 170 or more times. This shows how integral he is to the team as he has been playing alongside the bulk of the current starting XI for a number of years, which is why losing him in the summer would be a huge blow.

Therefore, van Bronckhorst will be devastated by the prospect of the towering machine heading out of the door later this year. He would leave a gigantic hole to fill at centre-back and the Dutch head coach would then be left worrying about how he will replace him.
