Ex-Rangers star George Edmundson has finally kickstarted life at Ipswich Town as his first goal for the Tractor Boys helps the League One side to only their second win of the season.

Edmundson, 25, scored the final goal in a 6-0 rout over Doncaster as Paul Cook’s stumbling start to life in East Anglia finally got up and running.

Signed for a reported £1m, ex-Gers centre-back George was amongst the most high-profile of Ipswich’s summer transfer business as former Wigan boss Cook overhauled the playing squad.

The likes of ex-Ger Sone Aluko and one-time reported Rangers target Rekeem Harper were also brought into the English third-tier side but up until Tuesday night’s game, they’d only registered one league win.

Only yesterday we were talking about Edmundson’s toils at Portman Road as an “unspecified injury” interrupted his early season and the player missed the first five league games.

But as the defender continues to get up to speed this is a landmark moment in not only Edmundson’s Ipswich Town career but for a club who were amongst the division’s favourites at the beginning of the season.

Edmundson rounded off a superb scoring display with Macauley Bonne netting a double and Lee Evans scoring a hattrick.

 

It’s a result which shows the rest of the league that Ipswich “mean business”, according to the former Ibrox defender.

George Edmundson: result proves Ipswich Town “mean business”

“We can feel it on the pitch, and I’m sure everybody can see it, that we are a lot more solid since the Bolton game (5-2 home defeat),” said Edmundson [ITFC].

“That’s down the gaffer helping us and going through individual clips and tweaking things a little bit.

“The only way you are going to learn about each other is playing. We’ve had a few games together now, got that first win at home and now we need to build on that.

“It doesn’t get much better than this. The attacking lads have got their numbers up and us as a back five get a clean sheet. All round it was a perfect night.

“This is what the fans have been waiting for. We had a bit of a shaky start, but it’s seven out of nine points now – that is momentum. I think tonight shows other teams we mean business.”

Despite enduring a difficult end to his Ibrox career, Edmundson remains a popular player amongst Rangers fans and Gers supporters will be following his career closely.

Meanwhile, a midfielder currently plying his trade in the Scottish Premiership has been catching the eye of Rangers supporters as of late.
