Exclusive: Rangers told to hand Goldson new deal or lose him to English giants
Alan Hutton suggests that Rangers may “cash in” on Connor Goldson if the right transfer offer comes in this summer.
The former Gers and Scotland full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, believes Steven Gerrard will find it difficult to hold onto the 27-year-old if clubs come calling.
As revealed by Football Insider, Rangers set a £6million price tag on Goldson but their valuation has since been hit by the Coronavirus pandemic.
With the likes of West Ham, Leeds United and West Brom in the hunt for his capture, it is understood the Gers may need to tie him to a new contract to keep him long term.
Despite the former Brighton man establishing himself as a mainstay under Steven Gerrard, Hutton believes he could be sold this summer if the price is right.
Hutton told Football Insider: “It’s going to be difficult if some of the bigger teams come calling but I think maybe it’s time that Rangers look to offer him a new contract, maybe hold him down if you like.

“He’s 27 now, he’s obviously getting to the peak, he’ll probably be looking to tie himself down for the next few years so hopefully it is Rangers because he has done excellently well.
“However, I think if the price is right then maybe it’s one Rangers will look to cash in on.”
Goldson has sat out just two games across all competitions this season, with 51 appearances to his name.
He played every single minute of the club’s Premiership campaign and netted three goals, all of which came in the club’s opening eight fixtures.
