[AMERICANS ABROAD] Maurice Edu started for Rangers in its 1-0 loss to Old Firm rival Celtic in their fifth-round Scottish Cup replay that ended with two Rangers players being sent off during the game, a third being sent off for dissent afterward and coaches from both teams jawing at each other. In other cup action, Michael Bradley made his first start for Aston Villa in its 3-0 loss at Manchester City.

The 10 yellow cards included second cards to Steven Whittaker in the 36th minute, Algerian Madjid Bougherra in second-half injury time and Senegalese El-Hadji Diouf after the game. Celtic manager Neil Lennon and Rangers assistant coach Ally McCoist almost came to blows afterward.

Celtic assistant Alan Thompson blamed the combustable Diouf for the trouble by put putting a shoulder into the Celtic trainer earlier in the game. Rangers manager Walter Smith said McCoist, his successor in waiting, was annoyed with Lennon.

"Playing each other seven times in a season doesn't help," Smith said. "We will go down and have a drink with the Celtic management team -- but it might be an interesting cup of tea."

MAN. CITY-ASTON VILLA: Brad Friedel started in goal and Bradley played the first 70 minutes for Aston Villa in its fifth-round English FA Cup match.
