Steven Gerrard, in a very very telling hint towards the Connor Goldson situation, gently intimated it comes down to money with the CB, after an ironic example of how negotiations work and where the hold up with his deal might be.
Speaking pre-St Mirren, the manager claimed to have no idea what was holding the deal up, but when pressed, cryptically hinted that the player wants a better offer with a very veiled metaphor:
If ever we’ve seen a cryptic comment which gives away effectively the nature of what is possibly going on, this could be it.
Does it boil down to cash? Maybe.
We have heard information, which was later put in doubt, as to Goldson’s demands, so we can’t be absolutely sure, but either way this situation doesn’t sound like it’s being solved any time soon.
