Rangers midfielder has vanished off radar but could revive career v Celtic
Rangers midfielder Sean Goss enjoyed a fantastic start to his Ibrox career after completing a loan move from QPR in January but has since seen his performances drop and lost his place in the starting XI – but the German-born ace could revive his Gers career against Celtic in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final.
The 22-year-old midfielder was quickly being touted for a permanent switch to Ibrox after the bright start he made but has lost out on a starting XI place with Graham Dorrans fit again.
Gers manager Graeme Murty could opt for a tactical switch on Sunday to add extra bodies to his midfield and Goss would be one of the options available to the Light Blues boss if he does make changes to try to counter Celtic’s midfield.
At only 22, Goss is still fairly young and lacks much experience of playing regular first-team football so it was always inevitable is form would dip after making such an impressive start in Scotland.
With Greg Docherty not exactly setting the world alight in recent weeks, there’s even a possibility that Murty goes for a straight swap against Brendan Rodgers’ side and brings Goss in to replace the former Hamilton ace.

The on-loan midfielder only has a handful of games left in the season to make an impression in the first-team and win a permanent deal and if given the chance against Celtic at Hampden, Goss could remind fans of exactly why they were clamouring for the Gers to sign him a few months ago.
