Rangers defender Connor Goldson says he would like to see Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall return to Ibrox, according to the Daily Record.

The Reds academy graduate has spent the season north of the border with the Scottish giants. He has played 31 games for the Light Blues and Goldson has featured regularly alongside him.

Worrall is expected to return in the summer to challenge for a place in Martin O’Neill’s team. No official stance has been outlined on his future just yet, however.

Goldson clearly rates the central defender though and would love to see him back.


He told the Daily Record: “I hope Joe comes back for another season. He has enjoyed himself here, he’s played a lot of games and done well.”

Seat Pitch Verdict

For Worrall to earn rave reviews from his team-mates is a firm indication he has done well. Rangers might not have landed silverware this season, but the defender has played his part in an improved campaign for the Gers.

It is uncertain at this stage what the future holds for Worrall at Forest, but he will seemingly get a chance to shine in pre-season. O’Neill has previously mentioned that he knows about the defender and his qualities.

The Reds have some decent options at centre-back these days and it will be a challenge for Worrall to get a shirt. Playing at a massive club, in front of huge crowds and performing in Europe can only bode well for his development, however.
