[AMERICANS ABROAD] Maurice Edu was injured in the first half of Rangers' 3-0 loss at home to Hibernian -- its first defeat of the Scottish Premier League season -- and left the game on a stretcher in the 43rd minute.

Edu injured his left knee on a lunging tackle by Hibs' John Rankin -- the same knee he hurt in May 2009 and sidelined him for seven months.

“It’s obviously quite painful for him, and we’ll have to wait until morning to find out how serious it is,” Rangers manager Walter Smith said afterwards. “It’s a concern, but until we get a look at him tomorrow, we won’t know for sure if there is any major damage or not.”

Only the day before, Edu talked about how he enjoyed playing a key role for Rangers in its heavy schedule of games after two "stop-start" seasons.

“I’m quite happy that the games are coming thick and fast right now,” Edu told the Glasgow Evening Times. “I won’t get jaded. I feel good. It’s still early in my career so I want to play in as many games as possible. Last year, I was unfortunate with injuries. In fact, my first two seasons in Scotland were a bit stop-start. This season I want to take advantage of being fit and be involved in every game."

Edu added that he knew what it was like to be injured ...

“It’s not a nice feeling and there’s nothing worse than knowing that you can’t contribute and help the team," he said. "I just hope that I can avoid that scenario again and I want to do everything that I can to help Rangers win more silverware this season.”
