Career

Oldham Athletic

Edmundson signed for Oldham Athletic on a scholarship on 14 July 2013,[3] and signed a one-year professional contract on 13 May 2015.[4] He was first included in a senior matchday squad on 22 August of that year, remaining an unused substitute in a 1–1 League One draw against Shrewsbury Town at Boundary Park.[5] Nine days later, away to the same opposition, he made his debut in the first round of the Football League Trophy, playing the full 90 minutes of a 2–0 defeat at the New Meadow.[6]

On 13 October 2017, Edmundson joined National League side AFC Fylde on a one-month loan deal along with teammate Jamie Stott.[7]

After impressing in his loan spell at AFC Fylde, Edmundson returned to Oldham Athletic.

During the 2018–19 season, Edmundson formed an impressive partnership with veteran defender Peter Clarke, and was named in the EFL League Two team of the season[8]

Rangers

Edmundson signed for Rangers on 21 June 2019, for an undisclosed transfer fee, where he claimed the number 4 shirt he wore at Oldham.[9] He made his European competition debut, starting against St. Joseph's of Gibraltar, in a 6–0 Rangers victory in the second leg of the Europa League first qualifying round. He scored his first goal for the club in a 2–1 win at Ibrox against Hibernian.[10]

On 2 November 2020 it was announced that Edmundson and Jordan Jones had been suspended by Rangers, pending an internal investigation, for attending a party and breaking coronavirus regulations.[11]
