Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has revealed no progress has been made in the club’s attempts to renew Connor Goldson‘s contract.
The 29-year-old’s current deal expires in just over a month’s time but, when asked about the player’s situation at a press conference yesterday, van Bronckhorst said there were no new developments:
“There’s no news. We’re working in the last weeks of the season and we are fully focused on performing on the pitch so no new news.”
A few clubs have been linked with Goldson over the past few months, including West Ham, West Brom and Nottingham Forest, but the general feeling is that the defender would prefer to remain at Ibrox.
The main sticking point is likely to be wages. The Gers have been tightening the purse strings as they look to balance the books so offering Goldson a sizeable salary rise is not on the cards.
However, if the Gers do manage to qualify for the Champions League group stages, either through winning the Europa League or finishing top of the Scottish Premiership, that could change things. With both scenarios looking somewhat unlikely currently, the chances of Goldson staying beyond the end of the season are not good.
