Rangers have reportedly agreed a fee for Brighton centre-back Conor Goldson and Brighton fans are gutted they’re going to lose him.
The Scottish Sun claim that the two sides have finally agreed on a fee of £3.5million for Goldson, with personal terms expected to be agreed.
It represents a huge sum of money for Rangers, who had previous bids rejected, and while Gers fans are worried they may have paid over the odds, Brighton fans are convinced that Rangers will be getting a bargain.
25-year-old Goldson has played 42 games for Brighton, but had a setback in his career when he had to have heart surgery in 2017.
He feared his career was over but he made a quick comeback and just nine months after surgery he was back playing for Brighton again.
Now he’s set to make his name as part of the Steven Gerrard revolution at Ibrox, but Brighton fans are sad to see him go.
Here are the best reactions to the news that Goldson is set for a switch north of the border:
Would rather you took Duffy off us for nothing! Goldson so reliable, calm under pressure and scores a few as well. Can’t believe we’re selling him so cheaply. 😩

Really disappointed that Connor Goldson is on his way to Rangers if reports are true. £3.5m seems like an absolute bargain for a premier league quality defender (especially given HGP status)

I think it’s more that Goldson wants to leave to get regular football than the fact we want to replace him. Either would be warming the bench next season I suspect.

Would be a shame to lose Goldson to such a shit league. He’s better than that. But unless we lose Dunk or Duffy his chances will remain limited. Will wish him the best. Will end up back in the Premier League I’d imagine #bhafc

Goldson to Rangers seems a done deal tonight then. Kind of a shame to waste his talent in the MTL, but I guess somebody like Virgil Van Dijk used it as a stepping stone, so a decent sell-on clause would be worth having.
