Former Rangers star Kris Boyd admits that he “can’t see any way back” for George Edmundson and Jordan Jones after their “brainless stupidity” saw them suspended by the club for breaching Covid regulations.
Boyd insists the pair “deserve all that’s coming to them” after the club completes their disciplinary process and doesn’t think either will play for the club again.
“I can’t see any way back for the pair after this,” Boyd told the Scottish Sun.
“Their brainless stupidity may have been a rush of blood to the head. I can’t think they made a conscious decision to risk everything by attending what the kids these days call “a gaff”.
“But that’s neither here nor there.
“The fact is, there are no excuses for their decision to party with a load of people when they should have been tucked up in bed.
“In normal times, these things happen. I’ve been there myself, back in the day, when you fancy a beer or two and off you go. But the world isn’t a normal place right now.
“There are rules there to protect footballers and the game from an awful virus that’s showing no signs of letting up any time soon.
“Jones and Edmundson are not young kids any more. They should have known better and deserve all that’s coming to them.
“Maybe Rangers will go easy. Maybe they’ll wrap their knuckles and fine them a few weeks’ wages for stepping out of line.
“But if you’re asking me if there is any way back for them, then I have to say I can’t see it.
“In my opinion, we won’t see them in a light blue jersey again. Chances are, they will be shipped out as soon as the transfer window opens.”
Both are likely to be hit with SFA charges too as a result of their breaches and it wouldn’t be a shock if both were ‘Grezda’d’ an never seen near the first-team again.
What really doesn’t help either player is that as more time passes, fans appear to be getting angrier and angrier over their actions and the possible repercussions.
If either does somehow play for the club again, it likely won’t be for quite a while.
