Rangers defender George Edmundson wants to savour European nights at Ibrox




GEORGE EDMUNDSON has heard all about the nights under the Ibrox floodlights since moving to Rangers this summer.

Now the defender wants to savour the Europa League experience for his own as Steven Gerrard’s side look to qualify for the group stages this term.

Rangers progressed through four qualifying ties to take their place in Group G alongside Villarreal, Spartak Moscow and Rapid Vienna during Gerrard’s first campaign as boss.

After seeing off St Joseph’s earlier this month, the Gers will take a 2-0 lead to Luxembourg for their return leg with Progres Niederkorn on Thursday.

Edmundson earned high praise from boss Gerrard for his assured showing during the comfortable victory at Ibrox last week.

And the 21-year-old is determined to go as far as possible on the continent this season.

Edmundson said: “It was a really good experience and I thought the team performed well. We felt like it could have been 4-0 or 5-0 but we will take 2-0 and look forward to the next game.

“The manager was pleased with me but, as always, he said there were still a few things that I can improve on and we will go over them and I will work on them in training. Overall I felt that he was pleased.

“It is a big game for us on Thursday and it is not over. We will go over there and hopefully we finish the job and get through.

“The lads keep going on about Rapid Vienna and how good it was because the place was bouncing. I want a taste of that and I want to get to the group stages.

“The lads always go on about the likes of Villarreal and Rapid and say what it was like on those nights. They just want a repeat of that this season if we can.”
