George Edmundson, a former Rangers benchwarmer, is currently thriving at Ipswich Town, and Premier League football is not out of the question for next season.

Even Derren Brown would have struggled to anticipate what would happen next if Rangers had accepted a reported £1 million from the Tractor Boys in 2021, with George Edmundson departing Ibrox after only eight Premiership games and joining an Ipswich club then in the third division of English football.

Two and a half years later, Edmundson is part of an Ipswich side that is flying high in second place in the Championship. Meanwhile, successive promotions may propel the late-blooming centre-half from the Ibrox bench to the bright lights of the Premier League in no time.

Former Rangers player wants to play in the Premier League.
“Everyone loves him,” Ipswich teammate Conor Chaplin told the East Anglian Daily Times after Edmondson’s heroics against Stoke City on New Year’s Day.

 

Ipswich Town TOWN SIGN GEORGE EDMUNDSON

 

 

“He’s such a nice guy and a vital part of the changing room and dynamic.” Big voice, big personality.”

During his tenure in the South East, Edmondson has been in and out of the Ipswich XI.

However, with the absence of Cameron Burgess, who is on Asian Cup duty for Australia, and a player who joined Steven Gerrard’s Rangers from Oldham Athletic in 2019, Kieran McKenna’s starting XI may be shifted.

George Edmundson is in ‘great’ shape.

“I thought George was a credit to himself at centre-half,” McKenna said of Edmundson after the FA Cup triumph against AFC Wimbledon. McKenna was mentioned for the Gers post following the sacking of Mick Beale in October.

“He’s worked hard over the last few months, waiting for his opportunities and supporting his teammates.”

“He was composed throughout the game and stood up really strong during those difficult first exchanges today.” He was superb in my opinion.”
