One beaming Rangers fan got even more than they bargained for with his side's 2-0 win over rivals Celtic last weekend - scooping £1,500 after betting on a Connor Goldson brace.

The supporter was delighted to see Englishman Goldson head in an early opener in the first-half before prodding home his second beyond Vasilis Barkas. The unlikely goal scorer was a whopping 300/1 to bag two goals.

Telling of his delight at the win, the punter took to social media. He said: "Out to spend some of the winnings big Goldson won me yesterday. Yasss! Rangers what a result. What a day." His post racked up more than 130 shares and almost 2,000 likes since it was posted.

Glasgow Times:

We told how Gers captain James Tavernier backed his pal Goldson after the game and revealed he never had any doubts of the defender's talents. "I am delighted for him and to get two goals at Parkhead, as a centre-back, it is a great day for him," the skipper said of Goldson. "He should be proud of himself, he was outstanding.

"Every man was outstanding. I am delighted for him, he is a big asset for us attacking and defensively so I am really proud of him. I have always had great belief in Connor and I love having him beside me and playing next to him.

"He gives us that freedom, I feel I have got extra security when I go forward because I know he is going to cover me in those positions.

"He does get criticism but that is part of the package. He is the one that has to step on the field and he has been terrific for us since he has come here.

"This season he has been outstanding for us and long may that continue. It is the start of the season, it is a long season, and while we will enjoy it, we have got a big game on Thursday and we have to get our heads down."
