Edmundson will be handed second Rangers chance after major transfer news - Hutton

George Edmundson could still have a future at Rangers amid interest from English clubs, according to Alan Hutton.

The former Gers full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the 23-year-old would be given a “fresh start” after being cast out last season.

As revealed by Football Insider last week (June 11th), Rangers have rejected several bids from English clubs for Edmundson.

The centre-back still has two years left on his contract at Ibrox.

He was shipped out on loan to Derby County last season after being banned by Rangers and the Scottish FA for breaching lockdown rules.

However, Hutton suggested Edmundson would be given second chance until an acceptable bid is tabled.

“They’re in a very strong position,” Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge.

“Ultimately, there are two years left (on his contract) so they don’t have to sell him. He’s gone down to Derby and done really well. He got his name out there and his performances warrant the interest from other clubs.

“If you don’t get the money they’re looking for, whatever that may be, he can stay and try force his way back into Rangers.

“I know it’s not quite worked out to this point but this is the start of a new season. Everybody starts from fresh again so there’s an opportunity there.

“Rangers are very strong at the moment, they’ll be happy to hold on to him. However, if somebody comes in with the right offer, they have got cover at centre-half.”

Edmundson played twice for Rangers last term before joining Derby in January.

He played 10 times for the Rams to help them avoid relegation.

In other news, a Rangers star may push to quit after just “three good performances”, claims Hutton.
