Rangers defender Connor Goldson can’t wait for a proper Ibrox celebration

Connor Goldson has had a glimpse of what a really successful season might be like at Rangers.

The defender shudders when he thinks how the trophy-starved Ibrox fans will react if Steven Gerrard leads the team to silverware.

There’s every chance it will be one crazy celebration and Goldson can’t wait for the experience.

Last Sunday’s victory over Celtic gave him a brief taste of how much it would mean to the supporters.

Goldson said: “I came here to bring silverware back to the club. We know how much the fans are craving it.

“You look at last Sunday, the Old Firm win, and the fans cheering after the game.

“We actually said to each other after the game: ‘Can you imagine what it would be like if we actually do go and win something? Imagine what the fans would be like then’.

“So that’s our next aim. It’s what we need to push for.

“I think we’ve all thought what it might be like to win a title.

“I don’t think we will know until we’ve done it. But I feel that the boys who’ve been here before, and know what it’s like, will drive this changing room on to go and compete.

“They know what this club wants and what is expected of them. But we know it has to be a team effort. It has to be a whole club effort.

“It’s going to be tough but it’s something that we are desperate to do.”

The 26-year-old will mark this season down as a personal success. The only slight annoyance is ending the campaign without any honours.

He was desperate for regular football after 18 months at Brighton that were disrupted by a heart problem.

The defender went on: “When I spoke to the manager last summer, it was about coming and playing as many games as I could.

“Luckily enough for me, injuries have been minimal and I’ve been able to play a lot of football.

“I’ve benefited 100% from that. It’s what I needed after the previous two years.

“It has been a tough year with so many games but I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

“We could’ve done better, could’ve pushed further. But, as a club, we’ve improved massively.

“I enjoy the pressure of being in a team that wants to win every single game of football.

“I’m glad I’ve come to that, but there is a feeling of what might have been.

“Look at us getting six wins on the bounce after the Old Firm away defeat.

“I feel that if we’d put that run together earlier, we’d be fighting for silverware.

“That’s the disappointment, not being able to put those runs together earlier.

“We’ve only lost one goal in this run – away at Hearts.

“When you’re scoring goals and not conceding, that’s a formula for winning games of football.

“Hopefully that bodes well for the future. It’s something we definitely need to take into next season.

“It’s hard when you have a brand new team, but friendships have developed over the course of the season and there’s a great bond between the players.”

Rangers are going for their seventh win-in-a-row at Kilmarnock today, but will be without centre-back Niko Katic.

The Croatian has been sent on holiday early because he’ll be representing his country at the European Under-21 Championships.

Goldson is looking forward to playing alongside him next season after seeing the 22-year-old emerge from a tough spell.

He said: “Nikola is a young boy and he started off brilliantly.

“Then when he got taken out the team and got put back in, I feel he put too much pressure on himself to try to impress.

“Now he’s come back in and been as happy as he was at the start.

“He’s played his own game, not tried to be anything he’s not, and not played with any nerves.”
