Edmundson has played his last game for Rangers after Source reveals update today - pundit

Noel Whelan claims Rangers could easily sell Geroge Edmundson to raise transfer funds this summer. 

The former Aberdeen striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insists the defender has played his last game for the Gers.

On 11th June, Football Insider revealed Rangers have turned down a number of bids for Edmundson this summer.

A Rangers source added to Football Insider today that the club expect him to go this summer.

Edmundson, 23, joined Derby in January after he was banned by both Rangers and the Scottish FA for breaking Covid rules.

The defender and teammate Jordan Jones were both slapped with seven-game bans for attending a party during lockdown.

When asked if Edmundson could be an easy sale to raise transfer funds, Whelan told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild, “It was an easy sale when he got himself into bother. 

“He put himself in the shop window. Not through any performances but when you are ill-disciplined and you let the club down there is a good chance you’re going to be sold. 

“Money for a player you don’t want to have is fantastic. I think it’s best for both parties that he does leave in the summer. 

“I don’t think he has any hope of playing for Rangers again, he blew that opportunity. He brought the club into disrepute. 

“I don’t think Rangers will stand in his way and they have more than enough cover in his position.”

The Gers have plenty of depth in Edmundson’s position with Connor Goldson, Filip Helander, Leon Balogun, Jack Simpson and Nikola Katic all set to be available next season.

Edmundson’s only outing for the Gers last season came away at Motherwell, where he scored an own goal after coming on as a substitute.
