Connor Goldson has shown just what 55 meant to him by saying Sunday’s title win was the best day of his life.
Now, true, you could say that about a lot of the players, maybe all of them, but it goes further for Goldson.
Remember, this is a man who not only nearly lost his career, but his life, as a result of a heart defect, and he has now told the world that winning 55 with Rangers meant more than saving his career or indeed his life.
Now, of course, this was maybe a little bit dramatic, because it’s not a matter of life or death – but it does give some gravity to just what this title win meant to Goldson and his team mates, and indeed anyone looking at our social channels in recent times will known exactly what it meant.
It meant everything to them.
So, given us fans waited 10 years for this and have followed and supported and loved this team all our lives, unlike many of the players, it gives a further clue of what it all meant to the support.
But back to Goldson – the title win meant so much to him that he put it above saving his career and his life – maybe emotion in the heat of the moment, but that’s some idea of the impact of 55 on our vice captain.
