Rangers ‘reject’ George Edmundson offers as Gerrard transfer promise tested
A source at Rangers reportedly said Football initiate that the club have rejected “a number of offers” from a range of clubs south of the border for defender George Edmundson.
Edmundson, 23, joined Rangers from Oldham Athletic in 2019 in a £ 650,000 deal and made 19 total appearances for the team.
Although the report did not mention any of the clubs that would be interested in George, the defender spent the second half of last season on loan at Derby County from Wayne Rooney.
Edmundson helped stave off relegation for the Rams whose league club status was saved after the final day’s 3-3 draw with Sheffield on Wednesday.
In total, Edmundson made 10 appearances for club Pride Park but has since returned to Ibrox with a debate over the player’s future.
Edmundson and his teammate Jordan Jones were involved in a high-profile Covid-19 breach in November, where the duo attended a house party in west Glasgow.
It was in violation of Covid-19 rules and the pair were arrested by police before being suspended by Rangers and sentenced to seven match bans by the SFA.
While Edmundson went to Derby, Jones was sent to Sunderland for many bluenoses, the Ibrox careers of both players are on the line.
Rangers are currently well stocked on defense and manager Steven Gerrard has previously confirmed that the club will not start the season with the six center-backs they currently have on the books.
“We have six center-backs at the moment, but that won’t be the case this summer,” Gerrard said [Glasgow Times].
George Edmundson was also back in Glasgow just in time for the club to lift 55 as he continues to count the cost of this Covid-19 violation earlier in the campaign.
