Hartson: Gers have way to go
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.
