Frank McAvennie has now revealed what he has heard about the ongoing situation with Connor Goldson and his Glasgow Rangers contract.
The Lowdown: No deal yet
Goldson is out of contract at Ibrox next summer, and West Ham United are reportedly monitoring his situation ahead of a potential approach in the January transfer window (Football Insider).
Should Rangers give Goldson a new deal?
If he has not signed by January, then he can be approached by clubs ahead of a potential free transfer in the summer.
The Latest: McAvennie on Goldson
Speaking to Football Insider, McAvennie, who is now a pundit after playing as a striker for the likes of the Hammers and Celtic, has revealed what he and former Gers player Derek Ferguson have heard about the situation:
“There are a lot of rumours up here about Goldson.
“From what I hear, Rangers have offered him good money. I spoke to Derek Ferguson this morning and he’s heard there is a decent contract offer.
“There may be something going on, we just don’t know. It’s worrying he hasn’t signed a new deal yet.
“He’s a big player for them and he’s not tied down, that has to be a concern.
“There must be something going on otherwise he would have signed it. It sounds like the offer is good so it must be for Goldson.”
The Verdict: Sign him up
Goldson is clearly a very important player for the Light Blues, having played in all but two games and captained the team on a few occasions so far this season (Transfermarkt).
To lose him on a free transfer would be nothing short of devastating, especially as he still holds a decent market value.
Nonetheless, there are still a couple of months to go until January comes calling, and so it is imperative that the Gers get the central defender tied down between now and then, and meet whatever demands he has.
