According to the Sun, the classy centre-back is putting the finishing touches on his deal to move from the Premier League side to Ibrox, with Steven Gerrard having sanctioned a transfer fee in the region of £3.5 million.
The 25-year-old managed just eight first-team appearances for Brighton last season after being forced to undergo heart surgery backin 2017, but he’s clearly very highly thought of by those who’ve seen him play.
The versatile defender is set to join Allan McGregor and Scott Arfield as the new arrivals at Ibrox this summer, but Goldson leaves the Amex Stadium having clearly made an impression on supporters there, and even if the fee is £3.5 million, there’s a lot of people who think Rangers are getting a quality player for a fraction of his real value:
5 years from now, this Connor Goldson to Rangers deal for £3.5m will be one of the biggest bargains around. Remember this tweet

To all #RangersFC fans. In Connor Goldson you are not just getting a top player, but a top man. A real highlight of last season was when he came back into the team and put in a MoM performance against Watford. #bhafc

Really disappointed that Connor Goldson is on his way to Rangers if reports are true. £3.5m seems like an absolute bargain for a premier league quality defender (especially given HGP status)

@RangersFC fans thinking they are paying over the odds for Goldson. Easily worth more than 3.5m.Honestly a class defender and personally from #bhafc prospective Would play him over Duffy. One hell of a player, will be back in prem one day. Bargain for #rangers #bhafc

Hope we put a buy-back clause in the goldson deal #BHAFC

Goldson will absolutely cruise it up in Scotland, and most likely come back south for 3 times what we sell him for. Good luck to him. Hopefully might mean that Dunk being off isn’t such a likely scenario also. #bhafc
