Maurice Edu netted his first goal of the season on Saturday, scoring a beauty in Rangers' 1-1 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Edu finished a nice passing sequence in the first half by blasting a left-footed volley to the far post.The goal was not enough to keep Rangers' unblemished SPL record intact as the club surrendered an equalizer in the 81st minute.

Edu was subbed off at halftime.

Here's the goal:

What do you think of Edu's goal? Like his facial expression on the celebration more? Think his goal is better than both of Clint Dempsey's finishes from today?

    He took a knock earlier in the half after the goal and never recovered fully from it. Mostly just a precautionary measure.


  • Edwin in LA

    God I want to see him with Jones in the middle and Donovan, Holden and Dempsey in midfield


  • Smirking Kitten

    Fantastic finish! It is great to see Edu’s offensive quality. Now, if Jozy sees some La Liga minutes this weekend, it will be a fantastic one for Americans abroad.


  • GW

    Edu has always had a knack for scoring goals going back to his high school and Maryland days. Nice to see him doing it at Rangers.

    “It’s in the back of the net” (revisting my memories of DCU scoring). Sweet strike by Mo Edu!


  • Bob Bradley's Scout

    Maurice scored last during the champs league too,if I am remembering corectly. I think its time to bench bradley in favor of a midfield pairing of: Edu and Holden…. They are both more rounded players than a bradley & jones pairing, meaning I think they are just as good defensively and better going forward. I mean holden was leading the premier league in tackles at one point!!!! why is he on the frigin WING!!! Please quit with the nepotisim BOB, Put your son on the bench!!! I havent seen the national team withot Micheal Bradley in 4 frikin Years… That is blatant favoritism…….


  • Bob Bradley's Scout

    Oh Wait! I am Wrong. I think Bradley may have sat 1 or 2 games, but only because of injury.


  • A.S.

    Yes, Edu scored two in the Champions League game against Valencia … one of which was an own-goal of course.

    I think that we certainly ought to try the Edu – Jones pairing in central defensive midfield. The experiment at center back doesn’t make sense to me. I would be fine if Bob Bradley played Michael Bradley instead of Holden too.

    He’s better then Michael Bradley and has been for a while


  • Gulati knows nothing about football

    Cause this is america and we play players out of position. Ever wonder why guys that made most of their names in the center constantly get pushed wide? Donovan, Dempsey, Holden, Fielhaber, Adu, occasionally Torres. If they are attackers they’ll get stuck wide cause our coaches are scared to pay attacking football. They want more defensive players like Bradley and edu but we still play a lot of players out of position.

    MB’s having a stretch of bad form. I’ll agree that Edu’s playing better then him right now, but not that Edu’s the better player. I think MB will turn it around, and and get back to his world cup form.

    Great to see Edu score for his club team. Too bad he won’t score for the US team with RoboBob at the helm.
