The 25-year-old becomes new boss Steven Gerrard’s sixth signing and, having been a Liverpool fan growing up, he is eager to begin work under the Anfield legend.
‘Steven Gerrard had a massive influence on my decision to sign. When he first spoke to me I didn’t really know what I was doing, there were a few clubs interested in me in the Championship and I didn’t really know what to do,’ Goldson told rangers.co.uk.
‘We carried on speaking and he has been brilliant with me, he said I could speak to him whenever I wanted to or whatever I was thinking.
‘We spoke quite a lot over the summer and it got to the point where I sat down with my family and I thought it was the right decision to make for myself and for them. For us all to be happy and for me to be playing football every week at a huge club.
‘Now he is my manager and I want to be able to learn off him as a coach and as a manager. I don’t really think there is going to be time for me to be star struck and be in awe of him.
‘We have a lot of work to do this season, we want to improve the team and we want to see how far we can go.’
