Celtic to battle Rangers to sign League Two winger

Celtic and Rangers are both interested in signing Crawley winger Gwion Edwards, reports HITC Sport.

The 23-year-old came through the academy at Swansea when Bhoys manager Brendan Rodgers was in charge at the Liberty Stadium, and he is said to have kept tabs on the player ever since.

Edwards had an impressive season for Crawley in League Two last campaign, playing 42 times, scoring eight goals and providing three assists.

The youngster joined the Red Devils back in 2014 after a successful one-month loan spell at the end of the 2013/14 season in League One where he scored two goals in six games.

The Wales U-21 international has already played in Scotland after a loan spell in the second half of the 2012/13 season at Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone, where he made 24 appearances in total, scoring one goal.

And it now looks like the Old Firm rivals will fight it out to secure the signature of Edwards.
