Peterborough manager Grant McCann has confirmed that both Old Firm clubs were interested in signing midfielder Gwion Edwards before he decided to sign for the League One club from Crawley Town.
Edwards had an excellent season with the Red Devils in League Two last season and McCann told the Posh’s official website that he was delighted to head off interest from Scotland’s two biggest clubs to seal a deal for the right winger.
He said: “I am sure he will excite the fans.
“He had interest from Celtic and Rangers so I am delighted to have him on board, he demonstrated great commitment to come and join us at Peterborough.”
The 23-year-old Welshman had been at Swansea City when Brendan Rodgers was the manager of the Premier League club but he did not make an appearance for the Welsh side before being loaned out to St Johnstone in 2013.
After his spell in Scotland, he joined Crawley initially on loan before completing a permanent move in 2014.
The winger joins Peterborough for an undisclosed fee after making 45 appearances in all competitions last campaign, scoring eight goals and providing three assists.
