Edu: No regrets swapping Toronto for Rangers

Mauricio Edu has no regrets swapping Toronto FC for Rangers this season. The USA international has struggled for minutes, but says: "At Toronto I'd played in virtually every game, so it's been a different experience.

"I had a big role in the team in Toronto, whereas here I have a job just getting into the squad.

"It's a big challenge but it's going to test my character and make me a better player. It's not been a surprise. Pedro Mendes and Steve Davis both came at the same time as me, they're both experienced players and I knew I'd have my work cut out.

"But I came to Scotland to test myself, to see where I stood and to make a name for myself.

"I wanted to come in and play immediately but I knew it would take time to settle into a new country and new lifestyle. It's been frustrating, because you always want to be involved in the success of the team, that's your job.

"But I'm confident in my ability and confident I can get in the team. It's a matter of being patient. I trust the manager and I'm sure my time will come."
