Rangers kicked off their domestic season with a dramatic win over Kilmarnock on Sunday afternoon.
The Gers will be looking to end Celtic’s supremacy and it could well be that, come the end of the season, fans look back on that 90+1 minute moment as a crucial moment (and yes, we realise it was the opening fixture).
So who do they have to thank? Well, that’d be Mr Connor Goldson, of course.
The former Brighton and Hove Albion man rose like a salmon to head home James Tavernier’s cross from the corner spot (shock, Tavernier assist). Limbs, limbs, some more limbs, and limbs on top of those limbs. Limbs. So many limbs that the police are now investigating the collapse of a roof that fell in the midst of the euphoria. Welcome back, football.
Goldson took to Instagram to post a picture of the special moment and, as expected, received a kingly response from the Rangers faithful – all of whom recognised its importance.
For those looking for a cheap little laugh to brighten their day – if you aren’t still riding high from the weekend, that is – in amongst the sea of blue, was a cheeky comment from centre-back partner Nikola Katic…
Katic said: “At least you didn’t steal it from anyone. Great Job bro”
This, of course, refers to the fact that Goldson pinched Katic’s goalbound effort when it was just about to cross the line in Rangers’ pre-season friendly against Marseille.
Just look at his face.
