As reported by The Argus, Rangers have had a second bid to bring Connor Goldson to Ibrox turned down by Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Light Blues are on the hunt for defensive talent that can improve what was a dire back-line in the 2017/18, conceding more goals than any other side in the Scottish Premiership top six.
One player they continue to pursue is Brighton defender Connor Goldson.
The Argus reports that after having an initial £1.5m bid turned down, Rangers returned with an improved offer that was still below the Premier League side’s valuation.
The paper say that the Seagulls are reluctant to lose the player as he provides immediate back-up to their established first-team stars.
Goldson may not be the most well known of names but he has a proven track record in the English lower leagues and, on the cusp of being Premier League quality, his physicality, combined with a no-nonsense style of defending, could be what Rangers need to find some stability next season.
Frankly, their defending can’t get much worse and Gerrard must treat that area with the utmost priority or the club will be going nowhere fast next season.
The centre-back is unlikely to cost the world and despite currently being far apart in their valuations, if the Light Blues are serious about backing their new manager in the transfer market, they need to be decisive and bring his targets to the club.
Should they continue their pursuit of the player?
