If Connor Godlson had already signed a new contract with another team, surely, it would have been announced by now?
I always felt, in recent months, that the reason everything was quiet was because he had agreed terms with Aston Villa and the obvious negativity that move would bring would be an unwelcome distraction, as it is, we are still none the wiser a few days after the curtain fell on an exhausting campaign, one which the vice-captain was once again integral to.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst openly admitted that he still thinks Goldson could be at Rangers next season with Alan Hutton telling Football Insider that he also reckons the centre-half’s departure isn’t as clear cut as it once seemed, Vital Rangers reporting the former Gers full-back’s interview yesterday.
Goldson has never hidden his love for the club but has spoken about the importance of his family, he is also at a crossroads in his career knowing that his next contract will be his last big one, the chance to double his wage for the next four years or so is one that not many would turn down in any walk of life.
Hopefully, we can get a resolution because he is such an important figure in the dressing room and on the pitch, it would also guarantee a much needed stability so that other areas can be looked at in terms of player acquisition.
Should we change of whole wage structure for one player? Absolutely not, but we should, as Hutton says, make sure those who can be relied up on to be available and perform at a consistently high level in a 65 game season get the rewards that they deserve – over to you Ross Wilson.
