Rangers center-back Connor Goldson has signed a new four-year deal with the club, ending speculation about his future. Goldson was out of contract in the summer but has turned down approaches from Premier League and Championship clubs to stay with the Scottish giants. The 29-year-old joined Brighton in 2018 and has been ever-present during his time in Scotland. He helped the club lift the Scottish Cup last season as well as the final of the Europa League.
“I am delighted Connor has agreed to remain a Rangers player, as he has been fantastic for me both on and off the pitch since I arrived,” Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst said about Connor Goldson. “His leadership is outstanding, and he is a huge influence on so many players around him, while his consistency of performance means he is someone I can always rely on. I am really looking forward to seeing Connor back for pre-season in a couple of weeks and to working with him again next year.”
“Connor is an important player in our group and we are delighted that following all of our discussions, he has decided to commit his long-term future to Rangers,” sporting director Ross Wilson said. “We have a strong relationship with Connor and we were always aware that this decision was a really important one for Connor and his young family, and we were prepared to respect the time for him to make the right decision for all concerned. I know how strong his feeling is for Rangers and we look forward to continuing the journey with him. With Connor committing his future and John Souttar also officially joining Rangers today we have assembled a strong defensive unit.”
