Outstanding for Rangers in a defence that broke records and went undefeated for an entire season, the best in our lifetimes that will likely never be repeated, but the Championship is his level?

He could easily hold his own in the Premiership, what nonsense.
You’re right he’d get a game at a bottom 6 club in prem if the likes of ajer and Duffy get game time.

I’m trying not to be downbeat about the transfers but Gio did say he hoped to come out the window stronger than what we went in.

At present it’s Patterson out & Sands in, which leaves us considerably weaker at fullback & tbh not much stronger in midfield as we have too many.

Hopefully some stuff going on in the background.

Seriously? A standout for us in Europe. Plays 50+ games every season without getting injured. Integral member of the invincible team last season.

Helander was a Serie A regular at Bologna and I’d say he’s on the same level as Goldson, so how does that make Goldson Championship level?

Scott McKenna was and is nowhere near as good as Goldson and he’s a Championship regular for Forest. Same as Worrall.

Goldson is considerably better than both.

I feel too many here overrate the quality and standard of the Championship. IMO we play at a much higher level in the Europa League every season. Lee Wallace and Dominic Ball are important players for promotion chasing QPR this season and they wouldn’t get a look in at our team.

I look at our best players: Goldson, Tav, Barisic, Helander, Kamara, Aribo, Kent and Morelos and for me they are all considerably above Championship level and would smoothly transition to the PL if clubs came in for them.
He’s been at fault for many of our goals in Europe though. I’m pretty confident Goldson won’t get a PL club after us.

He has had some outstanding games in Europe for us.

I guess some folk just won't realise how good he has been until he go's, he's been an outstanding signing and is much better than 'championship level' regardless of where he ends up.
Katic had some outstanding games in Europe too, Goldson and tav have cost us countless goals at higher level in the Europa league.

I’d like Goldson to stay but if his ambition is to play at diddy clubs like forest and wba then send him packing and try get the dutch kid in.

He missed 2 games Sheep and Stirling Albion. Hopefully he's back for Wednesday with the travelling involved to get back on time probably be on the bench.


He never got the mid season break the rest of our players goy, so I'd just let him ease himself back in this week, with a view to playing at Dingwall.

Mental if he leaves us to go to Nottingham Forrest or WBA.


The Forest manager has been quoted as saying that in McKenna and Worrall, he's got 2 of the best central defenders in the Championship.

Now I think both of them are decent enough and nowhere near as bad as some on here make them out to be, but Goldson is immeasurably better than either of them.

I see Greg Doc doing well at Hull, Ojo doing the same at Millwall and Christie being touted as far too good for the English Championship to know both Rangers and Goldson are totally different gravy from players and teams like that.

Let’s all be patient with Sands. He’s played one game where our entire midfield went missing at probably the toughest venue we travel to every season. He wasn’t even that bad although he did nothing particularly impressive.

Remember also he is on a loan deal with no obligation to buy. It’s a great deal for a player who comes highly rated. Impossible to judge at this stage what Gio sees his long term role to be.
We will be patient with him - he's here for 18-months.

In the meantime we're free to talk about what we've seen so far and how we think it will go.

I said when we were linked I fear he'll be another Polster.

That American league is daft - guys who were average or simply alright in Scotland look like superstars over there same with managers. It's not a footballing environment I take seriously.

Around £520k a year ️
He currently earns probably in the region of £1.5 million a year so hardly life changing sums if he gets an extra £500k per year.

When your earning that sort of money anyway surely winning trophies trumps an extra few quid in the bank.

I’m sure there’s zero activity going on in the background :rolleyes::))
You do know we know we have submitted a bid for Souttar (and that’s just 1 we know of)

Unfair to judge him based on the league he's coming from, sure there will be duds from MLS but there's plenty of gems that have came from America too, Alphonso Davies and Giovanni Reyna come to mind.

Goldson was never walking into a Prem team to be a starter, maybe a Norwich, Watford but they’ll be in champ next season anyway.

Obviously missed a lot of games with his heart condition therefore I don’t see him wanting to go to a Villa, Wolves type club to be 3rd or 4th choice.

Off top of my head Goldson been poor at a lot of goals this season especially before Gio arrived. Hibs at Ibrox, Nisbet left all alone 6 yards out, Aberdeen at Ibrox their first goal Goldson fuckin about at the back (along with others in defence), Ross county at home im sure he’s caught playing them onside for their 1st goal. Motherwell at fir park him and Tav make a mess of the long ball which they score from the corner, even Gio first game at Livi he lets a long ball bounce and we concede.

Last season he was tremendous my poty, however over the course of his years at us some shakey moments, Hamilton at home etc pre covid. On his day a good defender, communicator and we’ll miss that long diagonal but if recruit properly not sure we will miss him, not at the Cuellar, Boogie level for me.

West Brom and Forest linked with Goldson, so it would seem his reason for moving may be over family rather than money (if the reports are true)
Most of the other current rumours are a rehash. Siegrist wanted by Southampton and we’re mentioned as being interested and then the Right sided attacker throw shit at a wall links, Olsen and Amoo.
Exciting week, goes without saying Goldson MUST stay and the same for Morelos and Kent. Anyone else needs to be huge money

There's always exceptions to the rule.

I'm not judging him yet either. I'm saying that it's a basket-case of a league where players and managers who aren't up to much win awards and look decent.

Your speaking as a supporter. Most players will view it from a bank balance point of view

Great, but CB isn’t a priority position.

Souttar is 3rd choice when everyone’s fit, Goldson & Helander are both better.

We need a right sided attacker badly.

I’d be shocked if Goldson doesn’t go to villa as part of the squad. Gerrard knows and trusts him abc as a back up would be an easy option.

If it’s championship clubs I think we have a chance of keeping him.

1 draw under the new manager would say it won’t be a disaster if we don’t acquire the right target

Countless? You exaggerating for dramatic effect or can you genuinely not count?

I thought it was a stick on Goldson would go to Villa as he had a great relationship with Gerrard, I remember reading a story how Gerrard went to his house to get him to sign for Rangers.

Can you name some of these “many” goals he’s been at fault for in Europe? I can’t think of a single goal he’s been at fault for in Europe, yeah he’s has made mistakes in the league which has cost us but not in Europe.

Getting slightly concerned at the lack of activity.

We need to reinvest in the squad if we are going to sell players for the value we have done with Patterson. That was the model we were told would be adopted. There are areas where there is weakness and single points of success.

A RW and a No. 8 are required asap
We usually get our business done early but I'll be happy with a few key signings in the next week. Will be worried and very disappointed if there's no change when the window closes.

Goldson is better than Ajer, who seems to be in and out of the Brentford team. You can talk about buying potential and that, but Goldson is on a free, there's a few sides down south who are mad not to go for him. Really hope he signs a new deal.

Ajer has been injured for large parts of this season, when he's fit he's been a starter.

Aye, picking him up for nothing would be a no brainer for a lot of EPL clubs, even just to have him as back up. Theyll still pay him £30,000 a week plus. I would love him to stay also but im pretty resigned to him going now and i reckon the club are the same.

Fair enough, I honestly just looked at previous line-ups before posting it and he was in-and-out but if he's been injured fair enough. I don't necessarily think Ajer is a bad player, certainly has his flaws, but he is not a better player, or at least a better defender, than Goldson.

I went into the window not expecting much movement at Rangers. Mostly based on this from GvB. Seemed to me his goal was not to lose any key players - and he hasn’t to date. So we’ve had Patterson out, Sands in and Souttar on a pre-contract. I’d not be surprised if that’s us done until Summer.

He told the media: “I don’t expect anything. You just have to be prepared, that’s the most important thing as a coach.

“You need to be ready for anything. Maybe nothing happens, maybe a lot, you never know.

“We will see at the end where we are as a club at the end of the window.

“As a coach you don’t want to get to the end of the window and have a smaller squad than when you started.

"We have to be prepared to decide what to do whatever comes our way.

There will be plenty of activity behind the scenes. This week will see clubs, players and agents activity become focused.

He also said last week he has a budget and hopes to add 'a player', mind you.

I am sure I read on here that Goldsons family wanted to move back south to be nearer their immediate family,not much we can do if this is the case.

Hopefully a good player who isn't even on our radar will join before the end of the window. After the Patterson sale it would be difficult not to be a bit disappointed we don't bring someone decent in.
