Edmundson has Rangers medical

Oldham defender George Edmundson has undergone a medical at Rangers as the club look to finalise the £650,000 deal to bring the 21-year-old to Ibrox. The Daily Record believe that the transfer will be included in time for Edmundson to join his new team-mates on their pre-season trip to Portugal.
