Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has broken his silence over Jordan Jones and George Edmundson’s coronavirus breach.

The Ibrox duo have been suspended by the Glasgow club for attending a house party in the city at the weekend.

The pair were caught breaching the Scottish Government’s Covid-19 regulations when police were called to the illicit gathering during the early hours of Monday morning.

Ten people were fined and the party was broken up.

Jones and Edmundson were thereafter suspended pending an internal investigation.

On Tuesday, Gerrard told Rangers TV: “I think everyone at the football club’s disappointed with the actions of the two players.

“I think it was important that the club took decisive action, and were very quick to do that which was pleasing to see.

“The players know they have let themselves down and their families. They’ve also badly let their teammates down, and the supporters of the club.

“And they’ll punished internally, and it’ll be dealt with internally.”

Gerrard said a line has now been drawn under the incident as the team prepares to take on Benfica in Thursday night’s Europa League clash.

Speaking about Jones and Edmundson, Gerrard said the players were feeling “really down”.

He added: “They’re apologetic, they’re remorseful. They’re full of regret, and I think they’ll regret it for quite some time.

“They’ve made a bad, bad error of judgement.”
