Billy Dodds believes that Connor Goldson has been Glasgow Rangers’ Player of the Year.
Dodds backs Goldson for Player of the Year
The former Ibrox striker was speaking on BBC Sportsound (via Ibrox News)and was asked by presenter Richard Gordon whether Steven Davis has been the Gers’ best performer this campaign.
Dodds praised the Northern Ireland international but quickly moved on to discuss Goldson, saying:
“I think Connor Goldson has been incredible, Goldson for me is a stalwart who plays every game.
“He has been outstanding, we talked about the nine goals that they’ve lost, that’s just an incredible record at any level of football.”
At the age of 36, Davis has been an important player for Steven Gerrard this season, and it is no surprise to see the Gers offer him a new 12-month contract (rangers.co.uk) despite him fast approaching the end of his career. However, Goldson has been a rock on which the Gers’ success has been built.
Has Goldson been Rangers' best player this season?
After 33 games in the Premiership so far this term, the Gers have conceded just 10 goals (BBC), and Goldson has started every single one of those matches (Transfermarkt). He has also popped up with four goals in the league, including two in the first Old Firm derby of the season as the Gers won 2-0.
Without the £4.95m-valued former Brighton man, it is hard to believe that Gerrard’s side would have been quite this good. Perhaps Dodds is correct in picking him out as the best performer in the Ibrox ranks during a memorable 2020/21 season.
