Rangers are being linked with Ronnie Edwards – a player who Sir Alex Ferguson wanted Manchester United to sign.

Michael Beale’s men continue to be underwhelming at the start of the new season.

Saturday’s 2-1 win over Morton really wasn’t convincing and nor was the Champions League qualifying progression against Servette.

There are many new signings trying to settle in together, so maybe we should expect to see some growing pains.

Some Rangers fans may want more new additions though and one interesting rumour emerged just a few days ago.

Conflicting rumours emerge on Rangers’ interest in Ronnie Edwards

BBC Sport claimed that Rangers were alongside Bournemouth and West Ham United in the race to sign Ronnie Edwards.

The Peterborough defender has been hailed as an ‘incredible talent’ by Posh boss Darren Ferguson with big things expected of him.

The 20-year-old has huge potential but would be a surprise target for Rangers in the final stages of the window.

Edwards is a right-footed defender just like Connor Goldson, John Souttar, Leon Balogun and Leon King.

Adding another just doesn’t add up even if Rangers do think Edwards is a top talent, but the Gers have indicated to Heart & Hand that there is no interest right now.

Maybe Rangers have Edwards on the radar for the long-term but Peterborough have indicated that Rangers couldn’t even afford him.

We’re certainly not expecting a deal in the next couple of weeks but Edwards is a name to keep an eye on moving forward.

Sir Alex Ferguson is a fan of Rangers-linked Edwards

Edwards has looked like an exciting talent for a while now and he even caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Sun reported last summer that Ferguson urged United to sign Edwards back in the summer of 2021.

Ferguson had witnessed Edwards in action whilst watching his son Darren in charge of Peterborough, so passed on the recommendation to United.

The Red Devils seemingly didn’t take up that tip though and Edwards could now end up going elsewhere.

That could be to one of United’s Premier League rivals or even to Rangers if the denial turns out to be a bit of transfer bluffing.
