Gold­son would be worth his weight to shaky Gers de­fence

Evening Times - - SPORT -

IT has been an en­cour­ag­ing start to the sum­mer for Rangers in terms of play­ers com­ing in and Ovie Ejaria be­came the fourth sign­ing when he moved from Liver­pool this week.

Hope­fully we can get the deal for Con­nor Gold­son over the line in the com­ing days and he can be­come an in­te­gral part of the team.

I have been say­ing for years that we needed a big, strong, solid cen­tre­half in the team. We needed a Tam Forsyth, some­one, with the great­est of re­spect to Tam, that takes no pris­on­ers.

Gold­son seems to fit that bill and Steven Ger­rard will have known that he had to add a bit of height and phys­i­cal­ity to the team.

We need play­ers with a bit of fight, play­ers with the right men­tal­ity, and by all ac­counts Gold­son ticks those boxes.

With Scott Ar­field and Al­lan McGre­gor also com­ing in and Jamie Mur­phy mak­ing his move per­ma­nent, you have to say it has been a good few weeks for Rangers.

I would hope that be­fore we go to Spain next week­end there will be a few more in and the man­ager can spend the trip get­ting peo­ple in­te­grated into the squad and the team.

It is a huge sea­son for Rangers and we need to start well so hav­ing the play­ers in, and get­ting the men­tal­ity right, as early as pos­si­ble is go­ing to be cru­cial for the man­ager.
