ANDY HALLIDAY insists he is still unsure on whether Connor Goldson will be a Rangers player come the end of January.

The English defender is out of contract in the summer and it is currently unkown whether he will leave Ibrox in the winter window.

Goldson has been offered a new deal, but he has been constantly linked with a move back to England.

Halliday admits the length of talks doesn't sound promising for his old side, but he refused to rule out the 28-year-old penning a new deal.

Speaking on Open Goal, he said: "Van Bronckhorst talked about it that there will be talks, but honestly I don't know.

"I do think that the contract talks have been going on for a while now.

"These things do take time but this seems as if it is a lot of time."

Asked if Goldson could play in the Premier League, Halliday responded: "Aye. He is good. 

"I do think centre half has been an area of the pitch where Rangers have struggled this year.

"I am a big believer, listen you can have rotation in your team, but I think centre back parterships are massive.

"Connor Goldson and Filip Helander, their defensive record when they have played together has been very good.

"Since Helander has been injured and it has been Simpson, Balogun, Bassey, chopping back and fourth, that is not easy to strike a partership between them.

"They have conceeded 14 league goals, they conceeded 13 the whole of last season.

"But to be fair since Van Bronckhorst has come in, it was one of the first things he said, he wants the team to be harder to score against, and they have conceeded one goal in four."
