Rangers have confirmed that George Edmundson has left the club to join Ipswich Town.

The Tractor Boys currently ply their trade in the English third tier but given the relative size of the club they will have aims on a return to the Championship.

That is the division that Edmundson played for Derby County, on loan, last season and now he heads to Suffolk on a permanent deal to kick start his career.

An undisclosed fee is involved with the transfer but it has been said that Rangers have returned a profit on the reported £800k outlay that brought him to Ibrox – a further incentive for the Ibrox club is in store if Ipswich get promoted.

Signed from Oldham in 2019, the 23-year old made 17 appearance in total during his time at Ibrox.

He netted once for the club, in the last game to be played at Ibrox with a capacity crowd, to date – in the Europa League last 16 clash against Bayer Leverkusen in March last year.

The brief statement from Rangers to confirm the move wished the player well at his new club:

“Everyone at Rangers wishes George all the best for the future and thanks him for his contribution during his time at the club.”
