The Rangers contract saga involving Ibrox vice-captain Connor Goldson shows no signs of progress as the defender admits he hasn’t heard about any movement regarding a new deal.

Connor, 28, is a key part of the Ibrox side but is in the final year of his Gers contract following a £3.5m move to the club in 2018.

A vital part of Gerrard’s team, the player has previously suggested that he wants to commit to life at Ibrox and sees his future with the Gers.

However, as the days, weeks and months tick by Goldson edges closer to entering the final six months of his deal where the player will be free to discuss terms with other clubs.

Previously claiming that talk of a new contract was a distraction, the player admits that he hasn’t heard anything new regarding a new deal with the Ibrox side.

“No, I haven’t heard anything,” said Goldson [Rangers].

“I haven’t really spoken to my agent or the club recently so I couldn’t tell you where it’s at but I’m just focused on the club, playing football & making sure this club wins.”

Whilst Goldson doesn’t give much a way regarding his situation, until the player signs on the dotted line we suspect conjecture will continue surrounding his future.

The centre-back has been linked to the likes of West Ham United in the past and until his future is settled one way or another people are entitled to give their two cents on the situation.

Back in the summer, Steven Gerrard claimed the club were “confident” they could get Connor to sign.

“I’ve got a fantastic personal relationship with Connor,” said Gerrard.

“I remember bringing him up here three years ago and he’s done an incredible job, he’s got stronger and stronger each season.

“He’s very comfortable here, he’s a big leader, we’ve given him big responsibility making him vice-captain of this club.

“So he’s very settled, talks are ongoing. I’m confident we can get to where we want to get it. But at the same time, we will respect Connor’s space where he’s at and there’s no need to rush.

“As I say, we’ve got that strong personal relationship, his advisers are in touch with the club and things are moving forward.

“Hopefully, sooner rather than later, we can get him tied down because he’s very important to the team and to the club and to me, personally.

“He’s robust, he’s a top player, he’s a leader, and as a manager, they’re the players you want to rely on.”

Meanwhile, Rangers are set for an imminent £7m boost as Ibrox gaffer Gerrard gave his latest squad update.
