The Athletic reporter Jordan Campbell has revealed the Gers would rather let Connor Goldson leave for free next season than sell him for a reduced price this campaign.
The Lowdown: Goldson future up in the air
However, there is interest in his services from the Premier League, with West Ham said to have an eye on him.
The Latest: Campbell drops bombshell
Writing for The Athletic, Campbell has provided an update on Rangers’ Goldson stance.
He says the 55-time Scottish champions would rather let Goldson go for free and have him for one more year than sell him for a reduced fee this term.
The Verdict: Good choice
Of course, Goldson is a strong asset for the Gers. He is valued at £6.75m (Transfermarkt), considerably more than the £3m they paid for him (Sky Sports), and at 28 years of age he still has a good few years left ahead of him.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing impact on the football world, the Gers are unlikely to get a fee big enough for the former Brighton man who Steven Gerrard called “immense” earlier this year (via The Scottish Sun).
Will Goldson be at Rangers next season?
Rangers are targetting a place in the Champions League group stages this coming term and, given he played every single minute of every single campaign last term, Goldson is likely to play a big role once more. If the Gers do qualify for Europe’s premier club competition and Goldson plays an important part, keeping him will have been worth every penny.
In other news, Rangers fans are livid at this pre-season news.
