Kris Boyd thinks Rangers partnership is 'vulnerable' ahead of cup final

Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd has admitted that he isn’t convinced by the “vulnerable” partnership of Connor Goldson and Filip Helander at the heart of the Gers defence – despite having conceded only one goal more than Celtic.

Helander and Goldson appear to be Steven Gerrard’s first-choice pairing now but Boyd thinks there are weaknesses to be exploited with the pair.

The pundit thinks the channel between Goldson and James Tavernier is ripe to be exploited – even though the Gers only conceded eight league goals so far.

“I’m still not utterly convinced with Connor Goldson and Filip Helander as a partnership,” Boyd told the Scottish Sun.

“They are vulnerable in my book and the channel between Goldson and James Tavernier, in particular, can be exploited. That’s something Lennon will be aiming to expose.”

The Gers have conceded twice in their last seven domestic games so it seems Boyd is being particularly unfair on the Gers defenders.

There have been some shaky moments involving the pair but, over the course, the Gers have been pretty solid defensively.

It’s clear there’s been a massive improvement since last season and with Rangers having only conceded once more than Celtic in the league, it suggests there’s not a whole lot between how good both sides’ defences are.
