Goldson may quit Rangers for new club before January after confirmed news - pundit

Danny Mills does not believe Connor Goldson has not heard anything about a new Rangers contract.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Premier League and England defender suggested Goldson’s representatives may have spoken to other clubs and will want his future sorted by January.

The defender will be out of contract at Ibrox at the end of the current campaign.

He said earlier this week (October 20), via Scottish Sun, that he has not heard anything about an extension.

As quoted by BBC Sport today (October 22), Steven Gerrard admitted he is “not confident” Goldson will commit his future to the Ibrox giants.

“He’s 28 so he’s no spring chicken,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“Maybe he [Goldson] is playing it coy, maybe he had some interactions with his agent and had some calls but is not prepared to say that as yet.

“You get to that sort of age and you’d like to know where you’re future lies, especially come January.

“You’d like to know if there was a few clubs in for you and you have one or two options.

“Maybe he does. Maybe he’s just playing it cool and being a bit coy about what those options are.

“He’s going to be thinking ‘This is my last chance to earn a really good contract’. You’ve got to maximise that in any way that he can.

“If that’s holding out for a free transfer then I’m sure he’s willing to do that.

“He just has to make sure that he keeps performing and playing well. That’s all you can do.

“He’s 29 in December so teams will maybe offer him three years, I can’t see too many teams offering him much more beyond that.

“He’s taking a little bit of a risk because you can always get injured but he’s probably thinking ‘This is my last opportunity to get a big deal’. He’s going to do everything possible to maximise that.”
