Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has made Brighton defender Connor Goldson one of his main targets this summer and after it was reported that he is “desperate” to join the Light Blues it must spark the Gers into finally getting a deal over the line for the 25-year-old.

According to Luton striker James Collins, a friend of Goldson, the former Shrewsbury star would jump at the chance to join Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

Collins told the Daily Record that he has spoken with Goldson about the possible move and the comments from the former Hibs ace should give the Gers board the motivation to get a deal agreed with Brighton and make him Gerrard’s fourth signing.

The Gers are in dire need of new defenders and the Seagulls’ ace fits the bill perfectly for the Light Blues and clearly wants to be at Ibrox as Gerrard’s revolution kicks off.

Despite falling down the pecking order at the AMEX, Goldson is a talented defender and should walk into the first-team if a deal is done.

Goldson was a stand-out at Shrewsbury Town before his move to Brighton and, after an injury-hit time on the south coast, is the sort of player the Gers should be targetting.

With there believed to be little between the two clubs the Gers could even add the defender to their ranks before Gerrard officially takes charge on Friday.
