'Big, strong, quick' - Former teammate raves about new Rangers signing

Kilmarnock centre-back Gordon Greer has disclosed what has impressed him most about his former Brighton team-mate Connor Goldson.

Goldson recently completed a long-awaited move to Rangers, and Greer believes that the 25-year-old’s constant need to improve his game will stand him in good stead at Ibrox.

“I don’t want to put too much pressure on him coming in but he is a fantastic young player with great attributes” Greer said, as quoted by BBC Sport.

“He is big, strong, quick, very good on the ball, and the main thing for me is he wants to keep improving.

“The thing that really impressed me most about him was his attitude and his willingness to work and improve.”

Goldson looks set to be part of a new look Gers centre-back partnership alongside fellow new arrival Nikola Katic.

Football Insider verdict

Connor Goldson has been the subject of so much growing praise from his former team-mates that he must be a really impressive player indeed. He sounds like the type of player that the Gers have been crying out for. A centre-back who wants to get better and will cut out the mistakes which blighted their performances since their return to the Scottish Premiership. Steven Gerrard and Gers director of football Mark Allen must be big fans of the player, because they pursued him for weeks then gave him a long-term deal at Ibrox. Perhaps the only concern is the lack of games he has played in the last season, but if he is as good as Gordon Greer claims that he is then Goldson should be able to overcome that sooner rather than later. Goldson will be under pressure to perform, as all of his team-mates will be under Gerrard, but Greer sounds more than confident that he will be able to handle the pressure.
