Rangers vice-captain Connor Goldson has been lamenting the club’s stagnation in claims which contradict earlier comments about the squad.

The influential 30-year-old centre-back’s value to the team was seen this season when the club toiled without his presence at centre-back.

As a result Rangers find themselves all but out of the Premiership title race and having fluffed their Champions League and League Cup lines.

Connor Goldson comments echoed by fans

Speaking ahead of the weekend’s Premiership clash with Celtic, Connor Goldson comments that Rangers didn’t push on in the wake of 55.

It’s a sentiment that’s echoed by supporters completely who’ve heavily criticised the club’s transfer dealings over the last four windows.

“I don’t want to say this wrong because it will cause a bad headline but when we have won I think that we haven’t pressed on, and that’s everything as a club,” said Goldson.

“As a club we could have done more and now we are back to square one and I get the whole frustration of the fans that we haven’t kicked on after 55 and gone and won 56 and 57.

“After the Scottish Cup final last season we have to go and win it this year or maybe our season’s going to be no trophies.

“We got to a European final last season and lost, and the season after we are not top of the league.

“There are so many ups and downs that have happened. I should have won more.”

Rangers fans everywhere certainly agree with the comments of Connor Goldson but it’s an interesting change of heart from the summer.

Back then the centre-back was defending the club’s transfer record and claimed this was the best squad he’s been a part of.

Whilst that might still be true, the optimism appears to have drained from the defender and if anything the comments sum up how the support is feeling.

Connor Goldson isn’t the only one either, with Michael Beale’s latest comments hardly inspiring confidence before the Old Firm.
