Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson has claimed that the club isn’t resigned to losing Nottingham Forest linked Connor Goldson.

In an interview with Sky Sports, it’s claimed that the club is in regular discussions with the centre-back, with his contract due to expire in the summer.

Goldson has a number of clubs vying for his signature. Forest were linked with a move for the centre-back after missing out on a pre-contract agreement with John Souttar.

The 29-year-old has been a revelation for Rangers. He was signed in 2018 by Steven Gerrard and last season helped the Light Blues wrestle the Scottish Premiership from Celtic.

Now, his future is unclear, however. There has been an unwillingness to pen a new contract and perhaps a return to England is something he has set his sights on.

In total, Golson has played 200 games for Rangers and the club, it seems, are hopeful of striking a deal.

Robertson told Sky Sports: “I know Ross (Wilson) is having conversations with all the players whose contracts are expiring in the summer.

“I’m quite philosophical about how these things work. We just have to deal with what’s in front of us.”

Goldson could have Steve Cook effect on Forest

Forest seemingly hit the jackpot with the free transfer addition of Cook from Bournemouth in January. He has been brilliant since checking in and the Reds are now eyeing another defensive freebie.

Goldson at 29 is hardly one for the future. He has, however, showcased his class north of the border and deserves another crack at England.

Joe Worrall could be sold in the summer, whilst Tobias Figueiredo is likely to leave at the end of his contract. Loic Mbe Soh is at the club, but Steve Cooper perhaps doesn’t seem overly keen to involve him.

That could see Forest pursue another central defender and as a result, Goldson might represent a shrewd piece of summer business.
