“Rangers have been made aware of an incident last night involving two of our players, Jordan Jones and George Edmundson,” a club statement said.

“Both players breached Covid regulations by attending a private gathering with others outside of their household.

“We can confirm that both players will be suspended pending an internal investigation. On the instruction of Dr Mark Waller, the players will also self-isolate for 14 days.”

Rangers managing director, Stewart Robertson, said: “The chairman Douglas Park, Ross Wilson, Steven Gerrard and I discussed this matter as soon as it was brought to our attention.

“We are completely aligned in our action and the standards that are being set at Rangers.

“We will not tolerate behaviour that does not follow those standards and it is totally unacceptable for any of our players to be involved in anything that puts at risk the excellent protocols that have been put in place at Rangers.”

Jones was linked with a move to the Championship in the summer after being told he could leave by Gerrard, but no move materialised and he has made four appearances for Rangers this season, scoring once in the 5-1 win at Motherwell on September 27.

He missed four months of football last term after suffering a knee injury when he was red-carded for a foul in the Old Firm game against Celtic last September.

Edmundson, 23, has played just once in the Premiership for Rangers this season, scoring an own goal after coming on as a 76th-minute substitute against Motherwell in the win at Fir Park. He also started his side’s 5-0 win over Lincoln Red Imps in Europa League qualifying.
