Brighton captain Lewis Dunk has admitted that he didn’t understand just how big Rangers and Celtic are until Connor Goldson’s move to Glasgow saw the defender mobbed on a visit to the supermarket.
The Premier League star is close friends with the Ibrox colossus and it was only when it took half an hour to get out of Asda that he realised how much of a “big deal” Rangers are.
Dunk wants to get to Ibrox and attend an Old Firm game in the future and see Goldson in action for the Light Blues after spending three years together with Brighton.
“In England we probably don’t understand properly how big Rangers and Celtic are. We know they are massive clubs but only since Connor moved there have I been able to learn all about it,” Dunk said [Glasgow Times].
“When he first signed I went up to Glasgow to see him. He had to pop into Asda to get some milk and it took us half an hour to get out! He was getting a lot of attention from the supporters.
“So at that point I realised what a big deal it was to play for a club like Rangers.
“I’ve never been to a game in Scotland so that’s something I really want to do at some point. I’ve never seen Connor play for Rangers in the flesh but I’m hoping to get to an Old Firm game one day to experience that, especially knowing Connor and Shane Duffy at Celtic.
“That’s something I’d love to do once the virus has gone and it’s safe to do so again as I think it will be a brilliant atmosphere.”
Goldson has been imperious for Rangers this season and the defender is a massive reason why the Light Blues have been so successful.
Given his form since moving to Ibrox, you have to wonder why Brighton wanted to sell him in the first place and he’d walk into many Premier League sides.
While Dunk might want to get up and see an Old Firm game, there’s a queue of us who are all desperate to get in and see Rangers in action again.
An empty Ibrox did allow Rangers fans to hear Goldson’s reaction to a recent goal for the Gers – and it left fans on Twitter buzzing
