A number of Rangers fans on Twitter have sung the praises of George Edmundson after a landmark moment for the defender in midweek, with the 22-year-old tweeting his delight at scoring his first goal for the club (via @georgedmundson4).
The 1.9m (6 ft 4) centre-back equalised for the ‘Gers against Hibernian on Wednesday night in first half stoppage time when a free kick from James Tavernier deflected off the shins of two opposition players before the ball fell to Edmundson, who lashed it to the net to restore parity in a match that his team ultimately won 2-1.

The Englishman has had to be patient for first team opportunities this season, with Wednesday’s match seeing him make his first league start in four months, having played just a single minute of Premiership football in the meantime. The 22-year-old, affectionately known as ‘fridge‘ by some ‘Gers fans, has made only nine appearances for the club so far following his arrival from Oldham last summer.
These Light Blues supporters on Twitter voiced their delight with the defender after his big moment against Hibernian:
What a performance from you last night big man you strolled it #thefridge ⚪️
