Rangers team news: Goldson unavailable as Gerrard prepares for Cowdenbeath clash

Rangers will meet Cowdenbeath in their re-arranged Scottish Cup fourth round tie at Central Park on Wednesday night.

The two teams were originally scheduled to meet earlier in the month, however, the game was postponed due to a part of the pitch being frozen.

Steven Gerrard will know a trip to Rugby Park awaits the winners and will be determined to see his side to challenge for silverware.


However, he revealed he will be without one of his main men for the trip to Cowdenbeath.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, via the club’s official Twitter handle, he stated that Connor Goldson would not be available.


The defender picked up a number of knocks and has not featured for the Light Blues since the winter break.

Gerrard did, however, reveal that the 26-year-old was not too far away from making a return to the side.

The Verdict:

Goldson’s absence could come as a blow to Rangers’ chances of heading into the next round of the Scottish Cup.

Although Cowdenbeath are seventh in Scottish League Two, the cup always has the potential to throw up some surprising results.

Goldson has been a key player for the Ibrox outfit this season and has been a mainstay in the team, however, the likes of Nikola Katic should be enough to help the Scottish Premiership side get past the potential banana skin.
