Rangers go to United next week in the Champions League.
Edu said: "Scholes is one of the most complete midfielders around. He has all the characteristics of a top player.
"But I'm looking forward to playing against that level of player, if I get the chance. I've never been the kind to go into games worried of scared.
"You should get excited as these opportunities don't come around too often.
"To line up against those players - and see where you stand against them - it's a great chance for any player."
