Alan Hutton has urged Connor Goldson to forget the current transfer speculation surrounding him and stay at Rangers for what could be a “special” season.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Gers defender said the centre-back should concentrate on settling this season’s “unfinished business”.
As revealed by Football Insider, the 27-year-old has been subject to interest from West Ham, Leeds, Fulham and West Brom during the January transfer window.
Steven Gerrard values the Englishman at £6million but would be reluctant to lose Goldson in the January transfer window without having a ready replacement.
When asked about the possibility of the defender’s departure, Hutton told Football Insider: “Money talks. I understand the draw of down south is a big opportunity for him but let us not kid ourselves.
“That is the Championship. Rangers are still in Europe, going for the league so there are still trophies to be had and won at Rangers. He has been a key member of the team and played a lot of games.
“I would not like to see him leave. It is neck and neck in the league and you do not want to see the best players leave.
“Gerrard is building something special and I do hope that he does stay because he is an integral part of the team. There is unfinished business and I would like to see him concentrate on Rangers for now.”
Goldson has made a staggering 38 appearances this campaign – helping The Teddy Bears to second in the SPL as well as the knockout stages of the Europa League.
He has two-and-a-half-years remaining on his contract at Ibrox, having joined from Brighton in 2018.
