Rangers Exec: Edu Has A Future At Ibrox

Its no secret that Rangers, having seen so much of its lineup not available this season due to injury, are looking to sell a few players to produce the cash to buy a healthy new player or two. In the midst of these decisions, DaMarcus Beasley's future remains in question while Maurice Edu's place is looking more secure.

In an interview with Scotland on Sunday, Rangers number two man Ally McCoist found himself being questioned for why newcomer Edu has seldom seen the field at Ibrox. He admitted to SOS's Tom English that "You can argue that we've been a little bit unfair to Maurice. I've been looking at some of the team selections and, I can't speak for the manager, but maybe there have been occasions when we could have and should have used Mo."

The sputtering Rangers have a stacked roster at central midfield with Edu, Steven Davis, Kevin Thompson, Pedro Mendes, and Barry Ferguson (who may soon be sold off).

But even with a roster spot, is Edu still the odd man out? McCoist went on to tell SOS; "He excites me. I like Maurice. He's got just a wee niggling ankle injury that kept him out the last couple of weeks and will do for the next week or 10 days but I'm looking forward to getting him in the team. No element of regret there. You could make a case that it's our fault for not giving him the chance. He'll play for Rangers for years to come,
