Rangers new boy George Edmundson has admitted that he “can’t wait” to play in “a bigger game” at Ibrox after being told by fans that it was “quite quiet” during his competitive debut against St. Joseph’s.

Edmundson came into the side for the second leg win over the minnows and hopes he can retain his place for Thursday’s clash with Progres at Ibrox.

The defender admits he is looking forward to facing the Luxembourg side and confessed those are the occassions he plays football to experience.

“I put something on Twitter and most of the fans were saying that was quite quiet, so I can’t wait for a bigger game, like on Thursday night,” Edmundson told Rangers TV.

“Hopefully I can get in the squad and play.

“Everyone is looking forward to it, and playing in nights like those is why you play football. So we will just prepare for Thursday and hopefully get the right result.”

Edmundson will face a fight for regular games this season with competition from Nikola Katic, Filip Helander and Connor Goldson in central defence.

Helander is unlikely to be involved against Progres meaning Edmundson could be handed another chance to impress.

The defender might have to bide his time a little before getting a regular chance in the side however – although after spending so long chasing his signature, it’s clear he’s highly-regarded by Gerrard.
