Maurice Edu's up-and-down day

Maurice Edu was having a dream day in Rangers' UEFA Champions League match before disaster struck.

Edu scored the opening goal of Rangers' 1-1 draw with Valencia, skying high (and taking a punch to the face by Valencia keeper Cesar Sanchez in the process) to head home a 33rd-minute corner kick at Ibrox Stadium. He nearly added a second minutes later, when his shot from distance rattled the post.

Just a minute after halftime, though, Edu was the victim of an own goal, inadvertently heading a cross into his own net to account for all of the game's scoring.

Highlights of both goals are after the jump:
