Rangers defender Connor Goldson is confident the Gers can get a result against Celtic in this Sunday’s Old Firm clash at Ibrox – and believes the way that Steven Gerrard’s side have been playing recently is a “recipe for success.”
The Gers are on their longest run of consecutive wins since Gerrard took the reins a year ago and are looking to make it six wins out of six since tasting defeat in the last encounter between the sides.
Goldson believes that the Gers take confidence from only conceding once since losing the last Old Firm while scoring 12 goals and playing some really impressive football.
“In the last Old Firm, we know that we performed well, especially in the second half,” Goldson said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
“We were very reactive in the first half to what they were throwing at us. But after the break, we were right on the front foot. We had nothing to lose and since then we’ve gone on a good run.
“Now we’re going into this one with confidence. We’re keeping clean sheets and looking solid.
“We’re not allowing many shots on our goals and I think the only goal we’ve conceded was away to Hearts.
“We’ve been strong in that area but as well as that, we’ve been scoring goals and when you’ve got a good blend of both things it’s a recipe for success.”
Despite losing the in the last Old Firm, Gerrard’s side put in an impressive performance after being reduced to ten men when Alfredo Morelos was dismissed in the first half.
The Gers won when the sides met at Ibrox in December through Ryan Jack’s goal and a repeat would be a fantastic result after a tumultuous season for Rangers.
With only one more game left after Celtic’s visit to Ibrox, rounding out the season with seven wins out of seven would be a good place to start building for next season from.
