'Exciting times ahead' - Rangers fans react as Ibrox giants confirm deal for defensive colossus

Rangers have completed a deal to sign defender Connor Goldson from Brighton – and Gers fans are absolutely delighted to have landed the former Shrewsbury ace on a four-year deal.

The 25-year-old’s signing was confirmed by the Light Blues on their official Twitter account as he becomes their sixth signing of the summer.

Gers fans are delighted to see Goldson join Nikola Katic as new recruits in defence – with one fan saying the Light Blues have a “serious talent” on their hands.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Goldson follows Katic, Ovie Ejaria, Jamie Murphy, Allan McGregor and Scott Arfield as summer signings at Ibrox as Gerrard build his squad.

Goldson started his career with Shrewsbury Town, playing in both League Two and League One for them before signing for then-Championship Brighton in the summer of 2015.

At Brighton, Goldson was a regular in the side which almost won promotion to the Premier League before having to undergo major heart surgery.

While Goldson was out, the Seagulls won promotion and Goldson finally made his return to action in December last year.

The defender appeared in the final day clash with Liverpool for Brighton and will now report for pre-season with his new team-mates on Friday.
