Shock bidding war imminent for Connor Goldson?

We’re very wary indeed about posting this story, given the source is one with a notorious reputation at best, but they have occasionally got exclusives bang on so, with caution, we bring you the apparent bidding war in place to sign Connor Goldson.

Leeds and Fulham have been named as seeking the 27-year old defender whose stock definitely rose following his superb performance at Parkhead.

The two Championship sides certainly don’t lack funds, and with Goldson’s value to Gerrard, any side in for him would have to push the boat out to secure him.

Gerrard, repeatedly, has said no player is for sale, and only a crazy bid will persuade us, and for a player who has literally been 99% ever-present since he signed and is a colossal Gerrard stormtrooper favourite, prising the former Brighton man will be next to impossible.

Goldson cost £3M last summer year, but with two big English clubs, who both have funds, seeking his signature, Rangers wouldn’t entertain anything under £15M.

Goldson isn’t a fan favourite, far from it, and most supporters wouldn’t be broken to see him leave for a big profit, but given his importance to the manager, we see zero chance of this happening.

If it’s true…

  1. Sell him in a heart beat, if we got our money back on him i would be surprised. He is far too inconsistent for us and 1 good old firm game doesn't change that.

    If this story is true we should sell him and be done with it, then we can appoint a proper vice captain and start to get game time for Edmonson.

    If anyone is looking at him its probably because they will get him relatively cheap (compared to your 15m), i think Rangers would take less than 5m for him (not saying anyone would be daft enough to pay that though)

  2. I think people need to stop having a go at Goldson. Let's not forget over the last 4 league games away to Celtic, Motherwell & Hibs and home to Kilmarnock we conceded 1 goal, and that shouldn't have even stood. Now is not the time to start chopping and changing the defence when it's clearly working. Whatever your opinion is of Goldson he's been solid the last 4 to 5 games and stepped right up the mark when asked.

  3. 100% improved since paired back with Katic. I dnt think we should sell anyone who plays in the first team until end of season. We dont want to disrupt the team in any way.

  4. Yes, I agree with Shug, lets keep all players in this most important run in a long time. We have a real shot taking 9 in a row from the beggars. To do that, we need to keep the team together.

  5. Goldson has been a terrific signing for only £3m, and our best central defender. Don't want to see him or any of our other top players sold this month, if we can keep them all then we are in with a real shout of making it 55.
