Edu has struggled to make an impression since arriving from Toronto FC, but McCoist told the Scotland on Sunday: "You can argue that we've been a little bit unfair to Maurice. I've been looking at some of the team selections and, I can't speak for the manager, but maybe there have been occasions when we could have and should have used Mo.
"He excites me. I like Maurice. He's got just a wee niggling ankle injury that kept him out the last couple of weeks and will do for the next week or 10 days but I'm looking forward to getting him in the team. No element of regret there. You could make a case that it's our fault for not giving him the chance."
