After finally getting a chance to start for Glasgow Rangers, U.S. national team midfielder Maurice Edu made the most of the opportunity, impressing in place of injured starter Pedro Mendes in Rangers' 1-0 win over Hamilto Academic.
Edu's performance drew praise, as well as this pretty lengthy feature story on him in the Glasgow Daily Record, complete with "Rangers star Maurice Edu" headline.
Edu isn't likely to stay in the lineup long, but it is clear that he is highly regarded by Rangers and is someone who should benefit from the club's return to European competition next season. Whether fellow American DaMarcus Beasley is still around by then is another story.
What do you think of Edu's performance? Glad to see him in the mix? Wondering if he should be looking for a new club, or are you encouraged by the remarks coming out of Scotland about him?
