Rangers loanee George Edmundson has suffered another injury during his spell with Derby County in the Championship this season.
Wayne Rooney has confirmed in his latest press conference that the defender may only be out for two-to-three weeks at Pride Park.
It was also suggested that Edmundson may have to undergo surgery on another hernia, separate from the one he had before leaving Glasgow.
Speaking in his latest media outing, via the Derby Telegraph, Rooney shared the latest update on the Bears outcast.
“Before George came to us, on loan from Rangers, he had surgery on a hernia and he has a hernia on the other side,” he said.
“It is a decision we have to make whether he has surgery on it or not, but I think he will be out for two or three weeks.”
Edmundson will have been desperate to leave Ibrox and prove himself to Steven Gerrard after breaching the COVID-19 protocols earlier in the campaign.
Having surgery on another hernia would all but end his season with Derby on loan, and he will likely have lost his chance in Glasgow with that.
The 23-year-old has only started five games in the Championship under Rooney and hasn’t managed to catch the eye massively.
The defender only completed 14 minutes in the Scottish Premiership before leaving on loan, and his chances of more football here next season are slim.
It will be a nail-biting end to the campaign, and we hope that Edmundson doesn’t have to end it with another surgery; it would be a nightmare.
