Glasgow Rangers defender Connor Goldson has been in terrific form for the Ibrox club this season.

The Gers will face Hamilton in the Scottish FA Cup on Saturday. Ahead of the match, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has showered praise on Goldon.

Gerrard says that the 27-year-old has been ‘extremely consistent’ for the Gers. The former Brighton defender ‘hasn’t missed a training session’, and he is someone who has the complete trust of his manager.

The Gers boss says that he is delighted with Goldson’s form, and expects him to continue the form for the rest of the season.

Rangers returned to winning ways in the Scottish Premiership after beating Hibernian in their previous match.

The Ibrox outfit still find themselves seven points behind Celtic, although they have played a game less.

Rangers lost to Celtic in the Scottish League Cup final this season, and they should be looking to do well in another cup competition.

Goldon, along with Borna Barisic, has been key for Rangers this season, and they have a massive role to play if the Gers are to challenge Celtic in the league, and progress further in the Europa League.

‘Most important thing’: Gerrard admits Rangers are ‘missing’ something after latest result

'Most important thing': Gerrard admits Rangers are 'missing' something after latest result – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Glasgow Rangers have suffered a blow in the Scottish Premiership title race after managing a 0-0 draw against Aberdeen at Ibrox on Saturday.

With this result, the Gers’ eight-game home winning streak in the Scottish Premiership was ended yesterday after Aberdeen produced a superb defensive display.

The Pittodrie side left Ibrox with a deserved draw and now Rangers are trailing their archrivals Celtic by four points at the top of the table.

Rangers have now dropped points against Hearts and Aberdeen in the space of three games, and it has left Steven Gerrard unimpressed.

After the match, Gerrard has said that there’s something missing in his team. The Gers will be seven points behind the Bhoys if they beat Hamilton Accies on Sunday afternoon.

The Rangers boss feels that his side are lacking the spark needed in the final third.

“I just think we are missing a spark in the final third. That’s not just today but over the four games since we have come back,” said Gerrard to the Scottish Sun.

“As it stands right now we are four points off the top, two draws off the top. But that is not important unless we find our spark in the final third.”

Lack of cutting edge 

Rangers enjoyed 53% of possession, and attempted 16 shots of which they managed to keep five on target, during the course of 90 minutes against the Dons.

After a not-so-impressive first half, Rangers stepped up the pressure after the break but it was possession with no cutting edge.

Gerrard introduced new signings Ianis Hagi and Florian Kamberi in the closing stages but they failed to make an impact.
