Rangers player Connor Goldson has suffered a new injury blow that will leave him on the sidelines until next season.

Michael Beale revealed the defender’s latest setback is set to keep him out for around 10 weeks ahead of Sunday’s game against Hibernian.

That means he will miss pre-season and also be a doubt for the club’s Champions League qualifying games at the start of August.

The 30-year-old was missing from Easter Road with an unspecified injury although he recently had a hip flexor problem.

With the league campaign finishing next week, Beale is hoping to have Goldson back for next season although the timeframe makes things tricky with regards to the Champions League third qualifiers beginning on August 8/9.

Beale told RangersTV: “We have lost Connor and that will be for the next 10 weeks or so.

“We won’t see him until pre-season. But it’s a big opportunity for Leon (King), playing alongside John (Souttar) as a Scottish centre-half pairing with Robby (McCrorie) behind them, there is lots to be optimistic about with that triangle and I am looking forward to a strong performance from those guys.”
