The injury that forced Connor Goldson to come off in the first half of the Champions League defeat to Liverpool will keep the defender out of action for “several months”.

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst revealed the news ahead of their trip to Motherwell in Premiership action on Sunday.

Goldson picked up a thigh injury in Wednesday night’s 7-1 loss to the English Premier League side.

The 29-year-old centre-back was spotted leaving the stadium on crutches after the game.

Midfielder Ryan Jack also came off injured and will miss the game at Fir Park, with the Van Bronckhorst saying: “Connor and Ryan both have muscular injuries, so they won’t be back in the short term.

“I am not exactly sure (about Goldson) but it will be several months.

“Ben Davies had a knock on Wednesday but could continue the game, we still have training today, but I expect him to be involved tomorrow.”

“It is a big blow, whenever you have injuries,” he added. “Connor has played in all the games since I joined the club, apart from when we rested him.

“He was an ever-present, a very important player at the back with his coaching and of course with his presence as well so that is a big blow that we won’t have him back for the next months.”
