I am using reledpar and reledmac to transcribe a two-column Latin text, with 4 levels of footnotes. Footnotes line up at the bottom left of page (as shown in the MWE). Is there a way to set them below the relevant column?

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[top=2.8cm, bottom=2.8cm, left=1.9cm, right=1.9cm]{geometry} 

\renewcommand{\footnoterule}{}
%to remove lines above footnotes

\usepackage[series={A,B,C},noend,noeledsec]{reledmac}
\usepackage{reledpar}

\renewcommand{\thefootnoteB}{\alph{footnoteB}}
\renewcommand{\thefootnoteC}{\roman{footnoteC}}
