The commanding nature of Celtic’s win was a worry for Rangers.

 

But new signing Edmundson has suggested that Rangers will have an opportunity to come back at Celtic this term.

"It’s still early days in the season and I’m sure Celtic will slip up at some point,” the Rangers man said “I don’t think they are going to go the whole season unbeaten. It was a little hiccup but there’s a long season of ups and downs to come,”

The comments have not gone down well with Bhoys fans, as they feel Edmundson has spoken out of turn.

Celtic fans are still expecting to finish ahead of Rangers, and they expect Edmundson to be disappointed at the end of the season.

Edmundson has barely been used since he arrived at Rangers, with Steven Gerrard generally giving the centre-back a watching brief so far.

Celtic are in action tomorrow against Hamilton, while Rangers take on Livingston.
