Update: Maurice Edu Escapes Serious Injury

UEdu, felled by Rankin

Update: Rangers says Maurice Edu has a bruise only and he’ll be kept out of the this week’s game as a precaution.

———-

No magic spray for Edu. Tests to be done Thursday as to the extent of damage.

Maurice Edu was stretchered in the first half of the Glasgow Rangers’ 3-0 loss to Hibernian–yes the Rangers lost to Hibernian…at home!–in the Scottish Premier League. Edu was cut down by a John Rankin tackle and remained down for until he was helped off.

Rangers coach Walter Smith on the club web site: “Maurice took a knock on the knee, and at this stage we’re not quite sure how bad it is. It’s obviously quite painful for him, and we’ll have to wait until the morning to find out how serious it is. …… Until we get a look at him tomorrow, we won’t know for sure if there is any major damage or not.”

Maurice Edu’s Game Winner

The loan goal in the match on a nice run and simple finish. Well done for the California boy.

Elsewhere:

Marcus Hahnehann outstanding today for Wolverhampton. Does everything but get the win at Bendtner heads home in stoppage time for a 1-0 Arsenal win. Hahnemann on fire lately.

Jozy Altidore entered in the 60th minute of Hull’s 2-0 loss to Stoke City.

Jay DeMerit not in the 18 today for Watford. Apparently he passed a fit test, but has not been playing the best. Our Watford message board friends are not happy.

Kenny Cooper 10 minutes in Plymouth Argyle’s win.

Eric Lichaj two straight 90+ games at Leyton Orient on loan from Villa. Orient lost 3-1 today.
