Rangers Covidiots Jordan Jones and George Edmundson handed SEVEN-match bans after breaking strict rules at house party

JORDAN JONES and George Edmundson have each been handed SEVEN-game bans after breaking Covid rules by attending a house party.

The Rangers duo were hit with SFA charges earlier this month over their flouting of the restrictions.

And the disciplinary panel have now published their verdict on their website following a hearing earlier today.

The pair's seven-game bans mean they'll miss Rangers' clashes with Aberdeen, Falkirk, Ross County, Dundee United, Motherwell, St Johnstone and Hibs.

They won't be free to return to domestic action until the Ibrox club's Premiership clash with St Mirren on December 30.

Jones and Edmundson were among 10 covidiots who were punished by police over the party in Glasgow's west end earlier this month.

It’s understood the party was arranged after the players contacted young women on social media and they began messaging.

The women – who were spending the night at a city centre hotel – were then invited to a house party before it was busted by cops.

A video seen by The Scottish Sun shows revellers at a house party dancing and boozing from red cups.

Another image shared on social media shows Edmundson sitting in the same living room littered with red cups and leftover bottles of beer, with the caption reading: “Omg I can’t believe Edmunson and Jones have been suspended for this hahahah.”


After being made aware of Jones and Edmundson's actions the following morning, Rangers immediately suspended the pair.

And they were both made to self-isolate for 14 days as a precaution.

The Ibrox club's managing director, Stewart Robertson, said at the time: “The chairman Douglas Park, Ross Wilson, Steven Gerrard and I discussed this matter as soon as it was brought to our attention.

"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.”

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard didn't rule out Jones and Edmundson still having a future at the club.

But he admitted he would speak to club captain James Tavernier before making a decision.

He said: "I will speak to Tav and decide what to do from there.

“The players are going to have to take their medicine and punishment like men.

“I’m sure at some point they will have to give an explanation to their team-mates.”
