JORDAN JONES and George Edmundson have apologised to Rangers and their supporters after being hit with seven-game bans by the Scottish FA for breaking Covid-19 regulations.

The Rangers duo were given Fixed Penalty Notices by Police Scotland after attending a house party in Glasgow earlier this month and incurred the wrath of the Ibrox board and boss Steven Gerrard as they were suspended pending internal investigation.

A Scottish FA disciplinary hearing on Wednesday handed down lengthy suspensions to each player and, in a statement, Jones said: “I acknowledge that my actions have fallen well short of the standard expected at Rangers Football Club. I am sorry to the fans, the club and my team mates for causing this situation, it won’t happen again.”

The actions of Jones and Edmundson provoked widespread condemnation as Rangers acted swiftly to deal with their breach of strict club and Government Coronavirus guidelines.

Both players were ordered to self-isolate for 14-days following their suspension and Edmundson said: “I apologise unreservedly to the Rangers fans for my actions. I have assured the Manager, club and my team mates that these actions won’t be repeated, and I have learned from my mistake.”

Rangers have yet to reveal what further action, if any, will be taken against Jones and Edmundson at Ibrox as both players fight to salvage their Light Blues careers this term.

Neither will feature for Gerrard’s side in the coming weeks as a result of their Hampden ban and a Rangers statement read: “A Scottish FA disciplinary hearing on Wednesday handed down hefty bans to each player.

“Rangers accepts the outcome of the SFA judicial panel which has demonstrated the seriousness with which Covid protocol breaches will be dealt with. This penalty is a reminder to all of the expectations upon football.

“Football is in a privileged position and we recognise the responsibility that we all must uphold within the National sport. The outcome of today’s hearing brings the standard and expectations set by the SFA into sharp focus.”
