Goldson on how Gerrard talked him into £3m Rangers move



New Rangers defender Connor Goldson admits he cannot wait to get started as part of Steven Gerrard’s squad.
The centre-back, 25, has joined the Scottish club on a four-year-deal from Brighton, becoming the sixth signing by new boss Gerrard.
The player is reported to have cost around £3million.
Goldson, who had heart surgery in early 2017, grew up a Liverpool fan and is relishing linking up with the former Reds midfielder at Ibrox as they start a pre-season training camp.
“Steven Gerrard had a massive influence on my decision to sign. When he first spoke to me I didn’t really know what I was doing, there were a few clubs interested in me in the Championship and I didn’t really know what to do,” Goldson told rangers.co.uk. “We carried on speaking and he has been brilliant with me, he said I could speak to him whenever I wanted to or whatever I was thinking.
“We spoke quite a lot over the summer and it got to the point where I sat down with my family and I thought it was the right decision to make for myself and for them. For us all to be happy and for me to be playing football every week at a huge club.
“Now he is my manager and I want to be able to learn off him as a coach and as a manager. I don’t really think there is going to be time for me to be star struck and be in awe of him.
“We have a lot of work to do this season, we want to improve the team and we want to see how far we can go.”
