Rangers centre-back Connor Goldson has admitted that Hibernian are a good side, but insists that the Gers have what it takes to beat Neil Lennon’s men when the two square off on Boxing Day.

Steven Gerrard’s side were held to a goalless draw by Hibernian when the two faced off last Wednesday, but the Gers certainly had numerous chances to score on the night.

Rangers picked up a 2-1 victory in their last game against St. Johnstone as a better second half performance helped them come from behind to keep the pressure on Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

Goldson is of the view that Hibernian are a dangerous team and have good players, but also firmly feels that if the Gers can replicate their second half performance against St Johnstone, they should be able to win the game.

“There are a good side. We showed them respect going there by the way we set up”, Goldson told a press conference ahead of the clash.

“We had a game plan of playing on the counter attack and I think it worked really well.

“We missed quite a few chances which realistically we were a bit frustrated with.

“We thought we had a good chance of winning the game, but at the same time we know they are dangerous and they can hurt us.

“They’ve got good players and we’re expecting the same again. We know we have to be at it.

“We can’t put in a performance like the first half of the other night [against St. Johnstone].

“But if we put in the performance of the second [half] then we’ll have a good chance of getting the result we want.

Rangers have a big week in prospect, with a clash against rivals Celtic after the Hibernian game.
