Scots pundit: Rangers 'will quietly sell Edmundson' after multiple bids submitted

Frank McAvennie claims George Edmundson’s Rangers career will quietly come to an end this summer.

The Celtic icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, reacted to the latest on the defender’s future.

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

On Monday, a Rangers source additionally told Football Insider that the club expects the defender to leave 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.

McAvennie claims Edmundson will be ushered out of Ibrox with minimal fuss after his controversial spell at Rangers.

“Gerrard will already have made his mind up about him leaving,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Rangers will go about their business quietly, as they tend to do. I have no problem with that.

“Edmundson wasn’t getting game time at Rangers so it’s better for him to get going and try to restart his career.

“There’s nothing worse than training all week and not getting a game, it’s a horrible feeling.

“He might go away and want to prove people wrong but he has to know he messed up.

“He’s still young though, he could become a better player but his Rangers days are over if you ask me.

“I can see him leaving soon with minimal fuss now.”

The Gers have plenty of depth in Edmundson’s position with five central defenders 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.
