    "Muarice Edu's Rangers" as if he owns the club, he is not fit to wear the jersey!!! He was worse than a man short as he is most games.

    Chill dude! Headline writers usually go for the concise headline. Easier to say Edu's Rangers rather then Glasgow Rangers for whom Maurice Edu plays otherwise nobody in the USA would give a rip. LOL Enjoy your haggis.
