Generalizing a result of Wulf-Dieter Geyer in his thesis, we prove that if K is a finitely generated extension of transcendence degree r of a global field and A is a closed abelian subgroup of Gal(K), then rank(A) ≤ r + 1. Moreover, if char(K) = 0, then Ẑr+1 is isomorphic to a closed subgroup of Gal(K).
