Rangers

Gerrard swayed Goldson to join Gers

13th June 2018, 15:55 by Simon Barlow

Connor Goldson can't wait to get started at Rangers after joining from Brighton and Hove Albion on a four-year deal.

The 25-year-old becomes new boss Steven Gerrard's sixth signing and, having been a Liverpool fan growing up, he is eager to begin work under the Anfield legend.

"Steven Gerrard had a massive influence on my decision to sign. When he first spoke to me I didn't really know what I was doing, there were a few clubs interested in me in the Championship and I didn't really know what to do," Goldson told rangers.co.uk.

"We carried on speaking and he has been brilliant with me, he said I could speak to him whenever I wanted to or whatever I was thinking.

"We spoke quite a lot over the summer and it got to the point where I sat down with my family and I thought it was the right decision to make for myself and for them. For us all to be happy and for me to be playing football every week at a huge club.

"Now he is my manager and I want to be able to learn off him as a coach and as a manager. I don't really think there is going to be time for me to be star struck and be in awe of him.

"We have a lot of work to do this season, we want to improve the team and we want to see how far we can go."
