Moving on from Joe Worrall, we address the vice-captain, Connor Goldson.

That’s proven to be an inspired move from Steven Gerrard.

One of four new centre-backs who arrived at Ibrox ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, he was undoubtedly the quickest to settle.
Of course, there were a few wobbles along the way. Away at Spartak Moscow in the Europa League, for example.
He put through his own net that night and generally looked shaky as the Gers conceded four times in 40 minutes either side of half-time.

However, in general, he’s been by far the most reliable of Gerrard’s defensive recruits. That’s particularly impressive when factoring in that up until Christmas, his centre-back partner often changed on a week by week basis.
With 57 outings, only James Tavernier accumulated more appearances than Goldson (54) across the season. It wasn’t just his no-nonsense defending that impressed, either.
He contributed four goals, including a winner at home against Ufa and a big equaliser at Tynecastle in December which helped Rangers briefly go top of the league.

Overall, then, a highly impressive first campaign for Goldson. He’s looked a leader since he stepped through the door at Ibrox and if he sees out the remaining three years of his contract, surely he’ll help bring plenty of silverware back to the club.
