It appears that on Monday, May 20, at Ibrox, Connor Goldson may have played his last game for the Rangers due to transfer rumors.

The 31-year-old sustained a season-ending injury and hasn’t played a single minute since the Scottish Cup triumph over Dundee, 3-1.

Under Philippe Clement, Goldson has undoubtedly been a key player this season. Prior to incurring the knee injury that has kept him out of the last few games, Goldson made 30 Scottish Premiership starts.

It appears that the center back’s time with the Rangers is already over, as Clement is expected to sign a defensive player before the summer transfer window opens.

As per the Daily Record [20 May], the German team has reached a personal agreement with Jose Cordoba of Levski Sofia and is anticipated to negotiate a transfer fee with the Bulgarian team.

It’s believed that the move might cost the team £2 million this summer, but if Goldson decides to leave Ibrox and conclude his six-year stint in Scotland, the money might be rapidly recouped.

The center back and colleague James Tavernier have been connected to a move to Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia, where they would join former boss Steven Gerrard. Given the latest information, a trade appears likely.

Clubs may easily raise money by moving to the Middle East, which is something Clement and Nils Koppen will need to finish the club’s redevelopment at Ibrox this summer.

After joining the Gers from Brighton in 2018, Goldson has been a fantastic servant, making over 300 appearances in competitions.

The veteran has faced criticism for some of his recent performances, though, and given that the team is rumored to be interested in a promising 22-year-old player, it may be too late for him to return to Ibrox.
