Hart­son: Gers have way to go

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

NEW boss Steven Ger­rard is well into his re­fur­bish­ment of Rangers but John Hart­son be­lieves it would be “in­con­ceiv­able” for them to beat Celtic to the Lad­brokes Premier­ship ti­tle next sea­son.

The Ibrox club con­firmed the re­cruit­ment of 25-year-old cen­tre-back Connor Gold­son on a four-year-deal from Brighton yes­ter­day.

He joins Croa­t­ian de­fender Nikola Katic, who signed a four-year con­tract on Tues­day, mid­fielder Scott Ar­field, goal­keeper Al­lan Mcgre­gor, Jamie Mur­phy, whose loan switch from Brighton was made per­ma­nent, and Liver­pool young­ster Ovie Ejaria, who has been re­cruited on a year-long loan.

Hart­son, who played for Celtic be­tween 2001 and 2006, said: “They are mak­ing a lot of sign­ings and they will have to con­tinue mak­ing a few more sign­ings.

“Ste­vie is a class act and he will cer­tainly make an im­pact in that dress­ing-room.

“But Rangers’ big­gest worry is get­ting above Aberdeen, never mind Celtic.

“It is in­con­ceiv­able to fin­ish above Celtic in terms of where they are on and off the pitch.
