Rangers duo Andy Firth and James Tavernier were amongst those to wish George Edmundson well after the defender bid an emotional farewell to Ibrox on Instagram.

Edmundson completed a reported £1m transfer [Daily Record] to Ipswich Town earlier this week, signing a four-year contract at Portman Road.

During his time at Ibrox, Edmundson made 17 first-team appearances and scored two goals but slipped down the pecking order last season and a permanent exit was the natural next step following a loan spell at Derby County.

On Wednesday, he took to Instagram with an emotional farewell message in which he described playing for Rangers as a ‘dream come true’, a claim made more believable by a photo he posted in 2019 of him in a Gers kit as a young boy.

‘Wearing that badge and walking out at Ibrox is a feeling that I will never forget’, wrote the 23-year-old, who also wished the Rangers players and staff well for the future, before thanking and praising the fans for the support shown to him and for the ‘special’ atmospheres created home and away.

‘One a bear always a bear – Thank you – The Fridge’ was his sign off, accompanied by Union Jack, bear and trophy emojis.

The heartfelt post went down well with supporters, racking up over 15k likes by the time of writing.

Edmundson also received hundreds of replies, several of which came from former teammates.

Rangers skipper Tavernier wrote: ‘All the best fridge’ followed by a blue heart, while Andy Firth kept things light-hearted with ‘all the best spud head’ alongside Union Jack, handshake and blue heart emojis.

Steven Davis, Cedric Itten and Stephen Kelly also sent well wishes, while former Ibrox players Greg Docherty and Greg Stewart also showed their support.

Edmundson might not be the only player heading to Ipswich from Rangers this summer, as they are also reportedly keen on a player Gerrard has ‘given the green light’ to move on.
