Rangers defender George Edmundson was given his first league start by manager Steven Gerrard in the 5-0 win against Hamilton on Sunday.
The Englishman partnered fellow countryman Connor Goldson in the centre of defence and put in an assured performance as the Gers kept a clean sheet. Fans on Twitter were delighted with how the 22-year-old played:

Edmundson has had to wait for his chances this campaign. He has made just six appearances in all competitions since his £700k move from Oldham Athletic in the summer.
The centre-back had previously started in two Europa League qualifiers against St Joseph’s and Progres Niederkorn back in July, and his last start came in the League Cup versus East Fife in August.
Despite his good display at the weekend, Edmundson has a tough task of breaking into the side on a regular basis with Nikola Katic and Filip Helander also vying for places in the starting eleven.
