Connor Goldson has echoed Scott Wright’s ill-advised platitude of expressing ‘confidence’ (twice) with yet another example of a Rangers player spouting absolute cocky nonsense prior to an Old Firm match, setting the club up for a big fall.

Indeed, Goldson was suckered into the same trap Wright was, by claiming we’re in good form, playing good football, and go into Sunday’s match with confidence.

See, when we published our admonishment of Wright’s words, the majority of responses defended Wright, claiming there was nothing wrong with what he said.

Of course there was everything wrong with expressing confidence and saying we’re in great form, because there’s no humility in that when your record in the Old Firm is as bad as ours is lately.

Rangers have EVERYTHING to prove in this fixture, a fixture without a meaningful win in the league pretty much since 55 in truth.

And saying we go into this match in confidence, with just two wins in the last 5 or 6 matches, really isn’t the best way to be humble.

Not that we’re footballers having press conferences, but in their shoes we’d say:

“We go into this weekend knowing that while we’re in a better place under the Gaffer, we still have a lot of work ahead of us to win the 3 points. We’ve not been good enough against this team in recent times, and we need to prove to ourselves and to the fans that we can turn that around. But we can only do that on the pitch, not with words.”

But then that’s too much to ask for – instead they do a Sakala, and brag nonsense about how great we are right now and how confident we are, before as he did, flubbing his lines shockingly at Parkhead and completely embarrassing himself.

That, sadly, brought him down more than a peg.

Our players need to stop talking piffle to the media, stop making a rod for their own backs and show humility.

It doesn’t matter that we beat St Mirren and Ross County, it matters that we beat Celtic, and we’ve fallen short of that for so long that being confident this weekend really isn’t wise at all.

At least, not publicly.

When will they learn.
