Frozen-out Rangers bad-boy scores goal to continue English redemption

Frozen-out Rangers bad-boy George Edmundson has continued his resurgence down south with a goal for Championship Derby.

The centre-back, 23, joined the Rams on loan in January after infamously attending a party alongside Jordan Jones which was eventually broken up by police.

Following a suspension from the club and a seven-match ban in Scotland, Edmundson has yet to feature again for the Gers.

But since the deeply regretful incident Edmundson has battled back to get his career back on track under legendary former England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.


The powerful defender wasn’t the only ex-Rangers star on the scoresheet as Derby downed Huddersfield 2-0 with former Ibrox striker Martyn Waghorn netting the second goal of the game.

Struggling Huddersfield would also end the match with 10 men after Jaden Brown was sent off in the dying embers of the game.

Edmundson’s goal came in only the defender’s second start for Derby but the game was also shrouded in frustration for the defender who came off at half-time.

Fellow Covid-19 rule-breaker Jordan Jones was farmed out on loan to League One Sunderland with the Northern Irish winger also impressing south of the border.

However, the situation with Edmundson and Jones clearly didn’t serve as enough of a warning to some members of the Rangers squad.

An investigation is still ongoing regarding five players in and around the first-team who breached Covid-19 protocols earlier in the month.
