He’s not leaving Rangers for a English Championship Club surly, I’d be amazed no EPL team is after him.NOTTINGHAM FOREST and West Brom are vying for the pre-contract signature of Rangers defender Connor Goldson. The 29-year-old Ibrox defender looks certain to quit Gers when his deal ends in the summ…www.thescottishsun.co.uk
I don't think he wants to go I think he just wants to be valued for the service he's given the club as he's barely missed a game in his time here. He's also a huge leader on and off the park as well so for me we should be bursting the bank to keep him he'll be a massive loss.Imagine leaving us to play for 1 of them.
No European football.
No 50000 home fans every 2nd week.
No competing for trophies.
Playing championship football at the peak of your career when you could play for one of the biggest names in the UK and a big name in Europe.
No no surely not we should not be ‘busting the bank’ for any player you know that mate .I don't think he wants to go I think he just wants to be valued for the service he's given the club as he's barely missed a game in his time here.

If we can get shot of Lundstram and his alleged wage then for me that wage would be given in a new deal to Goldson. I doubt it's accurate but if that sun report is and Souttar is seen as his replacement then its a massive downgrade in quality.No no surely not we should not be ‘busting the bank’ for any player you know that mate .
We know what the market values contracts and skills at and what our market is and what we can afford and that is what our model will reflect
Surely this is the week links start to appear?
We are in the market for a RW and if reports are correct and Olsen is away to Brugge then surely leaks will start this week.
Has there been more on the move to Brugge seemed to have went quiet these last few days
He has already said (to an admin on here) that he doesn’t want to leave Rangers. Stumbling block is wages.That story about Goldson is good news for us IMO.
Nottingham Forest or West Brom in the Championship or Rangers with the Champions League next season? I think the odds are in our favour in those circumstances tbh.
Seriously? A standout for us in Europe. Plays 50+ games every season without getting injured. Integral member of the invincible team last season.
Our current squad is bloated and not good enough precisely due to average footballers, overpaid or otherwise.Agree. If we can’t get 2 first team starters this month then we shouldn’t bother doing anything, squad fillers should be coming from the youth setup, not overpaid average footballers from down south
I think this whole bloated issue will largely resolve next season.Our current squad is bloated and not good enough precisely due to average footballers, overpaid or otherwise.
Rangers have conducted a very positive window with the few deals done so I’d be happy as is.
There are clearly a number of players who should be long gone but realistically due to their wages they won’t be and will likely hang about unless we pay them off.
I'd have to agree, I would like to have seen a couple of players in giving them time to bed in before the Celtic game. I would also like both to be players who would strengthen our first 11. Its been too many windows now just buying squad fillers.One week left and no significant replacements other than Sands is beginning to be a worry, I’d have expected a RB and RW by this time, let’s hope the club are busy behind the scenes.
In terms of CDM, i certainly think Gio will see Sands as Davis successor. Whether he has the same impact is to be seen. As for Goldson, i think a replacement for him will be in the summer. Souttar for me is the Balogun replacementSands will never be a replacement for either Davis or Goldson.
I'm not writing him off after one game even if it sounds that way but from what I've seen and the contributions of Goldson and Davis then no, no way.
Said it on the other thread, but Championship clubs paying decent but not outlandish wages.
It is a fact that Barrie McKay was on £18k per week at Nottingham Forest
Not sure how it was structured, but that was the figure touted, ‘almost’ from the horses mouth.
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.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.
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.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.
Katic had some outstanding games in Europe too, Goldson and tav have cost us countless goals at higher level in the Europa league.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.
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.
Mental if he leaves us to go to Nottingham Forrest or WBA.
