Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has paid tribute to the influence of Connor Goldson after his excellent performance on Sunday at Ibrox against St Mirren.
The Gers picked up their first league win of the Gerrard era thanks to goals from Alfredo Morelos and Goldson himself, who wore the captain’s armband for the day after the manager decided to rest James Tavernier.
The Ibrox boss could barely contain his delight at Goldson’s impact at the club so far after the match.
As quoted by the official Rangers Website, Gerrard said:
He’s a leader, he’s a huge player and we’re delighted to have him here for a long time. He’s been superb both on and off the pitch since the day he rolled in and he’s a huge player for us.
He’s the reason why we are looking so solid with his communication, his organisation and he is posting very, very strong performances.
That is the reason he is vice-captain here, I trust him and I’m really enjoying watching him at the moment.
Rangers haven’t yet been beaten in the seven games under the new manager so far, keeping four clean sheets in the process and looking like a much-improved outfit from last season’s shambles.
There’s a solidity and a steely determination about our play at the moment which is clearly being demonstrated in the results.
With big challenges ahead at home and abroad, long may it continue.
