Rangers set to seal “bargain” £3m deal for Premier League defender

If Brighton fans are accurate, this looks like some signing.

Rangers are set to finalise a deal for Brighton defender Connor Goldson, with the centre-back soon to head to Glasgow for a medical, according to various sources in the mainstream media and well-connected Rangers fans.

Rangers have been pursuing the deal for some time, and it seems like around £3m will be enough to get things over the line.

Goldson is third choice at Brighton, but many of their fans are disappointed to see him leave. A short summation:

So, hopefully that proves to be accurate. Centre-back is by far the main area Rangers need to upgrade in this window, and it seems that either Steven Gerrard or Mark Allen have identified Goldson as their primary target there.

Things have been relatively quiet with regards to other rumours, but we’re highly likely to see that blow up in the coming weeks. There’s also the small matter of a massive clearout of our own squad, too. Exciting times ahead...

P.S. Conor AND Declan in the back four? Maybe time to give yer da a call and check on him.
