Connor Goldson signed for Rangers from Brighton, for a reported £3 million, back in June.
Ever since, when fit and available, he’s been pretty much a shoe-in in the starting lineup.

However, in recent times he hasn’t looked as solid as fans have come to expect.
In February,
the Gers’ defensive record was near flawless, but since the turn of the month, cracks have begun to show.
Joe Worrall was dropped for the clash against Killie, but there was no major improvement.

Is it Goldson’s turn to drop out?

Against Aberdeen, the 26-year-old was criticised for perceived poor distribution.
On Saturday, he and Nikola Katic’s miscommunication led to the visitor’s goal. Goldson stepped up but his centre-back partner stayed put, playing eventual goalscorer Conor McAleny onside.

Yet, it must be remembered that Goldson has already played a whopping 46 matches this season. That’s second only to James Tavernier.
With that volume of appearances, there is bound to be the odd blip here and there. More than anything, he probably needs a breather.
The international break has offered just that.
On the other side of it, the Gers face a major challenge at Parkhead.

Of all the centre-backs currently on Rangers’ books, surely he’s got to be first choice in the side.
Alongside Joe Worrall, he helped keep Celtic at bay at Ibrox in December. Therefore, those two would be my choice to get the nod again, come 31 March.
