Zurab Khizanishvili is hoping Connor Goldson will sign a new deal with Rangers to pursue a second Premier League chance on a free transfer, via quotes from The Scottish sun.
Goldson is just two months away from becoming a free agent as his existing contract ends on May 31. The Gers have never signed the centre-backs on any new terms since his arrival from Brighton & Hove Albion in 2018. But Khizanishvili hopes they can come to an agreement now.
Ibrox bosses haven’t given up trying to convince them either £3 million Star to extend his stay in the Premiership. This was announced by Rangers CEO Stewart Robertson Sky Sports last month that sporting director Ross Wilson was “having regular discussions” when he raised the matter.
Goldson has been an instrumental presence for Rangers since moving to Glasgow from the south coast of England. He has made 210 appearances in all competitions, including 48 this season. The defender also missed just one league game in September.
The Ibrox hero believes Goldson is leaving Rangers “no surprise” but wants a new contract
Khizanishvili will understand if Goldson decides to leave Rangers and make a ‘good move’ on a free transfer this summer. He joined Ibrox after failing to make it at Brighton, where he made just three appearances after promotion to the Premier League.
The Wolves-born enforcer also started just two of his careers in the English top flight for the Amex Stadium side. So if Goldson turns down a new deal with Rangers for a second chance south of the border, it wouldn’t shock Ibrox hero Khizanishvili next summer.
“I’ve been watching Connor a lot in the last two years, I follow Rangers all the time and I like him a lot,” Khizanishvili said called. “He’s got a strong mentality, he’s a real defender – just what I like to see at the club.
“But he’s 29 now, and it’s an interesting age. He has played in the Scottish League and the Europa League. I understand if a player who has proven himself as the No. 1 defender at Rangers might be interested in finding out about another league.
“I wish him the best of luck if that’s the case, but I wish him to stay. He’s played in England before but not that often so it’s no surprise if he’s thinking of trying again. The Premier League would be a good move. But he’s good for us and Rangers are good for him.”
