Lots of Rangers fans have been discussing their options at centre back, and 51 per cent of fans think it would be a mistake to rotate the ever-improving partnership of Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson.

Plenty of Steven Gerrard’s signings have hit the ground running at Ibrox. Lassana Coulibaly is an absolute beast in the middle of the park, Ryan Kent is improving every week and Borna Barsic looks like a real gem.

None have had quite the impact of Katic and Goldson though, who have formed a colossal partnership in the heart of defence, while also grabbing a few goals of their own from set pieces.

The pair have plenty of competition now though, as the Gers signed Gareth McAuley and Joe Worrall late in the transfer window.

McAuley may have been in line for a start at Villarreal on Thursday, but reports claim the experienced international has not travelled with the squad due to injury.

While squad depth is important for competing in multiple competitions, slightly over half of fans think the injury is a blessing in disguise, and they should not break the brilliant partnership of Katic and Goldson even for rotation purposes.
