Rangers defender Connor Goldson has admitted that he feels as though the Light Blues have ultimately “failed” this season after not getting their hands on any silverware.
The former Brighton ace believes there’s been progress under Steven Gerrard but with the expectation to lift trophies at Ibrox, failing to do so hasn’t been good enough.
Goldson also admitted that the current squad “know” new players will arrive this summer to bring the Gers “up to scratch,” which is sure to excite supporters ahead of the close season.
“Everyone here expects us to win trophies and be successful, so we’ve had a season where we feel as though we have progressed from where we were last year, but at the same time, we haven’t won anything,” Goldson said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“We know players have to be brought in that are quality to bring us up to scratch to winning trophies.
“When you don’t win a trophy at a club like this, I feel as if you have failed. Yes we have progressed and don’t think anyone can you otherwise. Every step we have progressed, but we haven’t won anything.”
After going eight years without a major trophy following the club’s demotion to Division Three in 2012, Gers fans are desperate to see their side end that drought.
With Celtic aiming for a ninth consecutive league title next season, stopping that must be the priority for Steven Gerrard’s side.
Lifting the Scottish Cup or League Cup would be fantastic but the league is the Holy Grail for Rangers fans just now – and hopefully the players want it just as much.
