Connor Goldson keen to play major role in Steven Gerrard era at Rangers
Connor Goldson senses "revolution" is in the air after joining Steven Gerrard's new-look Rangers side.
The former Shrewsbury and Brighton central defender is among five new players to have joined Rangers already this summer along with his former Albion team-mate Jamie Murphy, who made a loan stay permanent.
Gerrard's arrival has rejuvenated the Ibrox support after going through three managers during two seasons of third-placed finishes in the Premiership.
Goldson believes a sea of change is occurring at the club and he is relishing his first season in Scottish football.
He said: "I feel like there is a little bit of a revolution going on. The new manager has obviously made the fans happy and made them excited again.
"I know it has been a tough few years, but I feel like there is a lot of optimism around the club and I feel this is the perfect time for me to be joining.
"I feel like the whole Scottish League is getting more excitement around it. There have been a few big attractions in the last few years who have come to Scottish football, and I think that has just raised the level of awareness.
"The league is getting better and better. I don't think it is a step back any more coming to Scotland, especially Rangers."
Goldson is with his new team-mates in Spain as Gerrard tries to imprint his standards during their pre-season training camp.
"He wants to bring a winning mentality to the club, and I am all for that," Goldson said.
"I have been lucky to have been in winning teams, being promoted a couple of times, and that is what I want to do here."
