The 23-year-old was very much on the fringes of the first team during the past two seasons, but has been getting a lot more regular game time south of the border with Derby County. He has also had his trouble off the pitch as well this season, and that led to some discussion on the Record Rangers podcast about whether or not he still had a future at the club.
And Berry claimed that despite those issues, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard would give him another chance to prove himself and that he could still be useful, even if he isn’t seen as a regular in the first team.
He said: “I don’t know if I would say [he has] no future. He’s obviously not helped himself, the situation with Jordan Jones. But Steven Gerrard has shown that he’s willing to give people a second chance. I don’t know if I would necessarily say it’s the end of the road for him. He is still young. You know, he could be a squad player. I wouldn’t say necessarily his career’s over.”
Does George Edmundson have a future at Rangers?
TIF Thoughts on Gavin Berry’s comments on George Edmundson’s future…
Berry’s assessment might be right on what Gerrard could have planned for him, but it’s also about what Edmundson wants at this point in his career.
At 23 and having experienced regular football at Derby County, or at least more than he was getting at Rangers, he might find himself wanting to take the next step in his career and wanting to be a regular somewhere. So it might take a little bit of convincing on Gerrard’s part in order to keep him for the future, otherwise he might be seeking a better one elsewhere.
