An Ibrox Noise source revealed a potential shocker over Connor Goldson, later suggesting it might not be true. So we didn’t run with it.

Since then, we’re seeing a few other sources now mentioning it and we’ll go ahead after all, because Steven Gerrard also cryptically hinted it was true.

We know the deal for Goldson’s extension is being held up, and we’ve been trying to get to the bottom of why for many, many months.

And our information, from more than one source, has suggested Goldson wants to be the club’s best-paid player, with a wage of £42K pw mentioned.

Other sources have quoted £50K.

We cannot verify the absolute truth of this – we’re not like the DR or the s*n who will splash a false exclusive and claim it as truth. We will give you the information we’ve received and we’ll leave it up to you to decide if you consider it to be true.

But if it is true, it is plausible, and Steven Gerrard’s ‘negotiations’ over ‘quids’ does seem to ring a louder bell.

Goldson knows how much the manager wants him, and may well be using that as a bit of a bargaining chip, thinking the club will cave to his demands given how indispensable he is to Gerrard. He was of course Stevie’s POTY last season.

As yet, they haven’t caved.

But that’s if you take the story as true.

We know our sources and trust them, which is why we’re urging caution over this. Because they are too.

But signs aren’t exactly pouring cold water over the story.

  1. Hes not worth tht kind of money infact in my opinion he wld be on his bike but as we all know no one wants him so retract the new offer and let it solve itself do u think stevie g wld take him to liverpool with him whn he eventually goes not a chance

  2. Get Goldson to fuck, he has had months to sign a new contract, every time l see him the red mist starts, we could get a far better player for half that amount a week, even Tav isn’t anywhere near that amount, if SG caves in it goes to show how spineless the scouser actually is

    Enough is fucking enough

  3. If he was playing anything like he was last season you would maybe consider him to have a case for a better deal but not to that tune. He got a career lifeline from Gerrard and if this is his idea of showing loyalty then it is a slap in the face assuming there is any truth in it. I’m sure his agent will find him a club elsewhere but he won’t be on £42k per week, won’t have any chance of winning silverware or be playing European football.

  4. He knows the fee we will put on his head if he signs will be huge so is reluctant to do so get some £ In for him and get looking in Jan
