Alex Rae has revealed his fears over the future of Glasgow Rangers defender Connor Goldson, who has just one year left on his contract at the club.

West Ham United are said to be interested in his services.
The Latest: Rae worried
Speaking to The Times, Rae has expressed his fears in regards to centre-back Goldson. He said:
“My only concern right now would be Connor Goldson because he’s in the final year of his contract [and] this isn’t a business model where they let players run down their contracts. So I’d like to see Goldson signing because he has been outstanding and is a leader.”
The Verdict: Must get it done
Rae is bang on the money – tying down Goldson to a new deal has to be one of Steven Gerrard’s and Ross Wilson’s priorities this summer. He played every single minute of every single game last term as the Gers conceded just 13 times (thefishy.co.uk) on their way to the Premiership title.
Will Goldson be at Rangers next season?
He clearly has a huge impact on the side, and is a player Gerrard clearly relies on. Aged 28, he still has a good few years left in front of him – the Gers cannot afford to let him go, and if they do, it must be after he has signed a new deal in order to strengthen the club’s negotiating position.
Hopefully, the Gers will be able to come to an agreement with the £6.75m-valued (Transfermarkt) former Brighton man in the near future.
