Goldson announces the ‘real’ reason he hasn’t signed for Rangers
GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - APRIL 11: Connor Goldson of Rangers warms up prior to the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium on April 11, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Connor Goldson has announced the reason he hasn’t signed a new contract is because ‘it has to be right’.

The defender, the centre of attention over a 10+ month negotiation regarding a new deal, spoke for the first proper time about the situation, and said he has a baby on the way, wants to stay at Ibrox, but it has to be right for his family.

Which, if we’re absolutely completely honest, sounds like for polite talk for he wants more money.

Goldson has already been offered a nice contract, from May we understand, and we can’t fathom why a man, settled in Scotland with a nice house and family, would struggle to figure out if the deal was ‘right’ for him and his brood when everything’s been cushy up till now.

Furthermore, Goldson further confused the pot by saying he wants to stay and not only be remembered for 55, but for 56 and 57, in what sounds like deeply mixed messages to both the Rangers board and the fans.

It’s true supporters have lost a lot of patience for the CB, with the majority of club social media posts being greeted with derisory replies from fans asking them to announce his contract, but still the situation rumbles on.

He says he wants it fixed sooner rather than later, and yet he and only he has the power to sign.

The arrival of a child makes absolutely no difference, frankly.

Lee Wallace was in fact said to have remained at Ibrox in 2012 in part because his other half was expecting. For Goldson to use that as a reason he might not remain is a bit odd.

The whole thing is borderline strange, and we’re not even going to say ‘hopefully it resolves soon’ because our patience also ran out some time ago.

  1. I will be happy to see the back of him, Rangers is the best gig he will ever get, we rescued the guy, and as you say, wants more dosh, l will pay his flight to Bolton or one of the other mediocre clubs that would sign him, goodbye Connor, no player will ever be bigger than the club, fuck off, you are not welcome anymore

  2. Clearly he’s not a Rangers man and should go. In any case he makes too many mistakes for my liking which makes me nervous during a game
