Leeds loanee suffers another injury blow, some fans furious on Twitter after incident
Leeds United have confirmed that Ryan Edmondson suffered an injury while playing for Aberdeen in their 3-3 draw against Celtic on Sunday.
Edmondson, 19, scored twice for the Dons last Tuesday in their 4-2 win over Hamilton before retaining his starting spot for his side’s Scottish Premiership with reigning champions Celtic at the weekend.
However, the Leeds loanee lasted just 57 minutes at Pittodrie due to an injury, the official Leeds website has confirmed.
Some Aberdeen fans were left furious by how Edmondson’s injury came about as a seriously clumsily, and overly-robust, challenge by Celtic’s Shane Duffy.
Duffy clattered into the Dons striker and launched him into the advertising hoardings.
One supporter called it “assault” as a number of fans fumed over the incident on Twitter at the weekend.

Payback for the usual Brown antics of taking Wright out of the game earlier! He gets away with it time and time again! So much for video evidence being looked at after the game! And Duffy’s challenge on Edmondson was GBH!

Lennon saying that Gollum had done baffling decisions today – Duffy not getting punished for assaulting Edmondson, Brown getting away with elbowing Wright and McGregor not getting a second yellow for numerous fouls never mind the penalty? Correct Neil

Does anyone know how Edmondson is? He took a fair clatter from Duffy 😬

McGregor should have been off, Duffy was lucky to not pick up at easter a yellow for ploughing Edmondson into the hoardings and of course, standard Brown thuggery ignored by officials. https://t.co/a3rYRLbK7I

Scottish football is famous for how rough it can be and when things are not going Celtic’s way, they tend to throw their toys out of the pram.
Edmondson’s already had one injury since joining Aberdeen on loan.
In August, the 19-year-old was initially ruled out of action for up to four months due to an ankle injury [BBC Sport].
However, the teenager recovered quickly and was back playing for the Dons within a month, missing just four Scottish Premiership matches.
Derek McInnes’ side won all of their games while Edmondson was out so if he’s sidelined for a period of time on this occasion, Aberdeen fans will be confident of getting results.
However, it’s not ideal timing for the centre-forward, who scored twice last week and played a role in Aberdeen’s impressive six-goal draw with Celtic.
Leeds will want to ensure Edmondson stays fit during his spell in Scotland and a second injury before the end of October isn’t great but, in hindsight, could have been expected.
