Rangers have suspended George Edmundson and Jordan Jones after breaching Covid-19 regulations by attending a “private gathering.”
The club confirmed the steps in a statement released on the official website as they take a zero tolerance approach to players flaunting the Covid-19 rules.
Both will be subject to a formal disciplinary investigation with Stewart Robertson not mincing his words in the club’s statement.
“The Chairman Douglas Park, Ross Wilson, Steven Gerrard and I discussed this matter as soon as it was brought to our attention,” Robertson said.
“We are completely aligned in our action and the standards that are being set at Rangers.
“We will not tolerate behaviour that does not follow those standards and it is totally unacceptable for any of our players to be involved in anything that puts at risk the excellent protocols that have been put in place at Rangers.”
Jones has found himself on the wrong side of manager Steven Gerrard on a number of occasions now after his red card and injury in his Old Firm debut, then a court appearance and now this latest issue.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see both players heavily fined by the club and left on the sidelines by Gerrard for a while once they complete their isolation and rejoin the squad.
There’s no doubt Rangers have taken the right steps over the players’ breaches and both will have a lot to do to get themselves back into the manager’s good graces again.
