With the East Anglian side currently sitting 11th in League One, they are going to require more wins to have any realistic hopes of pushing for a top-six spot.

Edmundson joined the side in the summer after spending two years at Rangers, in which he featured sporadically.

The Englishman did have some highlights from his time at the Ibrox side however and is fondly remembered by the Rangers faithful.

Having scored against Hibs and Bayer Leverkusen in his first season at the club, the building blocks were there for him to push Connor Goldson and Filip Helander and challenge for a first-team place.

A breach of COVID-19 regulations In November last year proved to be the defender’s undoing at Rangers and he joined Derby County on loan in February before making the permanent move down to Ipswich in the summer.

The 24-year-old had potential and he would have been a useful option for the club right now as our defensive woes continue and we find ourselves short of cover at the back.

Regardless of this, it is always great to see a former player utilising his potential and getting the game time he deserves.

Meanwhile, Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield hopes to have his uncertain future resolved soon after yet another impressive performance.
