Connor Goldson targets Rangers 'justice' as he lays down challenge after Celtic win

Daily Record logoDaily Record 6 days ago Michael Gannon

Conor Goldson insists Rangers can use their Celtic Park stroll to fire them all the way to Premiership glory this season.

The defender grabbed a dream Old Firm double to dump the champions and launch Gers four points clear at the top of the league.

Goldson feels the dominant derby win can boost their title bid – and there won’t be the same mistakes as last term when Steven Gerrard’s side crumbled after winning at Parkhead at Christmas.

The centre-back said: “We didn’t do ourselves justice after we won here the last time and when we came back from the winter break.

“We were poor – we didn’t look half the team as before the break.

“Hopefully this win will give us the confidence we need to go and put together a big run.

“It is massive. Old Firms are always huge games and we knew we had to start well, score first and defend well at times. But we did everything right.

“We controlled the game, defended well to limit their chances – and we got two goals.”

Goldson was thrilled to score a double as Steven Gerrard's men cruised to victory and make it back-to-back wins in the East End for the first time in 25 years.

He said: “I was happy with the first one and 
happier with the second.

“At 1-0, anything can happen. We defended a bit deep and didn’t play how we did before the goal.

“After the second, I think you saw us at our best, keeping the ball and doing really well on the counter-attack.

“We have worked on our shape for two years now and used it against some top teams. The new lads have bought into it and it has always seemed to work for us in big games.

“We know what we are doing, we have been doing it a long time. We limited Celtic to few chances.”

Rangers are on a roll after going 14 games 
without defeat this season – with just two draws in 11 league games.

Goldson wants to keep the surge going in Europe this week with Standard Liege on the horizon.

He said: “It is so early in the season, just 11 games played, and now it’s on to the European game on Thursday.

“We just need to get three points and keep progressing as much as 
we can.”
