Rangers midfielder Edu: Financial situation forces us to simply get on with it

Maurice Edu says the current financial position of Rangers Football Club is out of the control of the players.

The reigning Scottish champions are facing the prospect of being forced into administration and could even endure a massive 25-point deduction in the SPL but USA international Edu says the players can only get on with the job at hand amidst fears they may lose their jobs at some point.

"That's a situation some people fear," he told the Daily Record. "The players are aware of everything that's been said and the different things that are being put out there, but what can we do?

"We can only focus on playing and try to put those things to the back of our mind.

"Hopefully things work out well for us and the club can come out of this situation.

"It's a concern and one that's been there for the past two years," he added. "We've been put through circumstances that were unforeseeable when I joined the club.

"There's always a business aspect attached to a club as big as Rangers but there are times when you have to realise we're just players.

"There are things that are out of our control and we can't dictate what will happen in this particular instance.

"You can listen to everything and let it overwhelm and distract you or else you can just focus on playing.

"Football is our passion and our escape from reality. We're just trying to enjoy ourselves and hoping that things will work out."
