Connor Goldson senses "revolution" is in the air after joining Steven Gerrard's new-look Rangers side.

The former Shrewsbury and Brighton central defender is among five new players to have joined Rangers already this summer along with his former Albion team-mate Jamie Murphy, who made a loan stay permanent.

Gerrard's arrival has rejuvenated the Ibrox support after going through three managers during two seasons of third-placed finishes in the Scottish Premiership.

Goldson believes a sea change is occurring at the club and he is relishing his first season in Scottish football after arriving from Brighton last week.

He told RangersTV: "I feel like there is a little bit of a revolution going on. The new manager has obviously made the fans happy and made them excited again.

"I know it has been a tough few years, but I feel like there is a lot of optimism around the club and I feel this is the perfect time for me to be joining.

"I feel like the whole Scottish League is getting more excitement around it. I feel there have been a few big attractions in the last few years who have come to Scottish football, and I think that has just raised the level of awareness around it.

"The league is obviously getting better and better, and that is another reason why I decided to join. I don't think it is a step-back any more coming to Scotland, especially Rangers.

"It is a great step to take and I am happy to have taken it."

Goldson is with his new team-mates in Spain as Gerrard tries to imprint his standards on the squad during their pre-season training camp.

"He wants to bring a winning mentality to the football club, and I am all for that," Goldson said.

"I have been lucky to have been in winning teams, being promoted a couple of times, and that is what I want to do here."
