‘He’s A Big Lad With Great Potential’ ‘Very Happy’ Rangers Fans Are Delighted With The Club’s Latest Addition

Rangers have confirmed the signing of defender George Edmundson from English League Two side Oldham Athletic.

The centre-back reportedly cost £650,000 and is manager Steven Gerrard’s sixth signing of the summer.

Fans on Twitter can’t wait to see Edmundson in action and are hopeful he can realise his potential at Ibrox:

Edmundson himself says he is delighted to have signed for Rangers. He admitted that there were a number of clubs interested in him, but when he heard the Gers were after him, he knew who he wanted to sign for:

“This is a dream come true for me and I am so happy to get it over the line. Now I just can’t wait to get going. I’m only a young player but to come to Rangers is a massive opportunity and I feel like I can live up to the expectation.”

“There were a few clubs interested but as soon as I heard that Rangers were in for me there was only one place I wanted to come to.”

The 21-year-old will need to prove himself in order to break through into the first team. Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic were a good centre-back pairing at the back end of last season and will take some dislodging.

Edmundson is unlikely to be the only centre-half signing this summer, though, with Joe Worrall having returned to Nottingham Forest and Gareth McAuley’s contract expiring at the end of this month.
