|Rangers will not dwell on last season's Europa League failure, says Connor Goldson
| sbobet mobile Connor Goldson says Rangers have to forget about last season's disappointment in Europe as they prepare to get their campaign underway next week. The Gers face Macedonian side Shkupi in the first round of the Europa League qualifiers, one year on from a shock exit at the hands of Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg.
That result put Pedro Caixinha's job under threat early in the season and by October he had been sacked. While Goldson, a new signing under Steven Gerrard, was not part of that team, he admits they have to move on this season. "All the new players have heard what happened last year and that has been spoken about," the defender said. sbobet mobile "But at the end of the day that's the past and we can only look forward.
"We have an exciting draw and an exciting first game at home at Ibrox in front of our own fans, so we must be ready, be positive and there's no point in looking back on last season. "We are at a new season with new players and a new manager and we look forward to it." Rangers are set to hone their preparations for Thursday's fixture with a friendly against Bury on Friday night, which will be a first outing for Gerrard and five of his new signings at Ibrox.
sbobet mobile It is just their second friendly since returning from a 10-day training camp in Spain - they beat the New Saints earlier in the week - and Goldson is confident that, if the team can put into effect everything that has been worked on, they stand a good chance of reaching the Europa League group stages.
