The progress Rangers have made this summer is quite remarkable.
In the wake of damaging defeats to Celtic at the tail-end of the Graeme Murty ‘era’, many fans were left wondering where the club could possible go from there.
Step forward Steven Gerrard, a man who has brought his winning mentality in to the club in a thrilling way.
His signings look to have mostly been superb but there’s one that rises above the rest and that’s defender Connor Goldson.
Embarrassing slip against Motherwell aside, the 25-year-old ex-Brighton & Hove Albion man has been absolutely crucial since his arrival in Glasgow.
He’s arguably been the most important player on our run to the group stages of the UEFA Europa League and his presence in the defensive line has transformed what was a shaky looking side into a cohesive unit ready for all tests.
If we are to get anything from tomorrow’s match against Celtic, he will be at the heart of it.
These fans have taken to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their joy at his impact…
Genuinely think Connor Goldson would have headered his Nan for the result tonight he headered everything else that came near him, unreal second half!

"It's worth naming a power of attorney. Basically, if you were incapacitated, your matters would then be in the hands of someone whose decision making you can trust."
"Can I have Connor Goldson?"

Make no mistake about the size of this achievement for @RangersFC.
A great summer of recruitment where every player who came in has hit the ground running for us and done a job.
Special Mentions for Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Alan McGregor. Rock solid in all 8 qualifiers.
