Transfer: You can’t say no to Gerrard – George Edmundson


 George EdmundsonRangers New signing, George Edmundson has said that saying no to a manager like Steven Gerrard is more a difficult task after he asked him to play for Rangers.

Edmundson signed from League Two club Oldham this summer,and says it was almost impossible to turn the Scottish club down.

“It’s a massive club,” the 21-year-old said. “When they have a gaffer like Steven Gerrard and he wants you to come and play for him, you can’t say no.

“His standards are very high but it’ll keep us all on our toes. We’re improving as a team and individually.”

“But all the lads have helped me settle in, the gaffer’s been really good with me, and I feel like I’m getting better every game.”

Filip Helander has also joined the 54-time Scottish champions after the club spent around £3.5m on the Swedish defender.

Along with Conor Goldson and Nikola Katic, the Gers have good depth at centre-back, which Edmundson has indicated is keeping him on his toes.

“There’s a lot of competition at centre-half. Whoever gets the positions, we’ll be supportive to them,” he said.

“I’m just going to take every day as it comes. I’m still learning, I’m still young, so we’ll just have to see.

“[Gerrard’s] said, ‘We’ve signed you because we think you’re a good player. Keep doing what you’re doing and play simple.’ I’m now trying to do that.”
