Nottingham Forest will offer Connor Goldson a pre-contract this month as the Rangers defender sweats on his Ibrox future. According to The Scottish Sun, the Reds will be rivalled by West Brom in the quest to land the 29-year-old.
Goldson could see his time at Rangers come to an end. Last season, he helped the club to a first Scottish Premiership crown in 10 years as the Gers ended Celtic’s stranglehold on the domestic division.
Signed by Steven Gerrard in 2018 from Brighton, Goldson has become a fan favourite. He has made 195 appearances for the Gers, scoring 17 goals and claiming seven assists for the club.
His contract will expire in the summer. It seems almost certain he will quite the Ibrox-based club and Forest are waiting in the wings to pounce.
Interestingly, Forest will probably seek Goldson as a possible replacement for Joe Worrall. He does look to be Premier League-bound in the near future and the Reds will need reinforcements.
Together, Worrall and Goldson made 27 appearances together, with the Gers losing just six times during that period.
The loan at Rangers proved a huge learning curve for Worrall and now Goldson may be about to jump into his shoes at the City Ground.
Uncertain: Rangers fans react to Goldson link with Forest
It does seem as though some Rangers fans rate him, although plenty clearly aren’t overly familiar with Forest’s current defenders.
Some have claimed he’s an upgrade on both Joe Worrall and Scott McKenna. If that is the case, then Forest could be about to hit the jackpot

Both defenders have been magnificent for the Reds; although former Rangers loanee could leave for the Premier League if Forest aren’t promoted this season.
Nonetheless, Rangers fans have been providing the Reds fan base with some information on their current player over on Twitter.
