Rangers crock Edu: Biggest year of my career

Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu says the coming year could be the biggest of his career.

Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu says the coming year could be the biggest of his career.

Edu is recovering from a knee injury and told Rangers News: "This could be a big year for me, probably the biggest of my career.

"I'm looking to make the most of it and it all starts here at the club. First of all, I need to get back in the Rangers team. I'm obviously anxious to get back playing again but, at the same time, I've got to be a little bit patient.

"Even though I know I'm very close to being fit again, I don't want to rush myself and try to come back too early and end up back on the treatment table. It's certainly exciting to be doing more things now – I'm out of the gym at last and I'm getting outside to do a bit of jogging.

"It's all looking promising so far but, at the same time, I'm just trying to stay level-headed and I'm not getting carried away. It was maybe a little naïve to say I was looking to be back again in the second week of September.

"On reflection, I should just have taken things day by day – the way I am now – and I'm just taking things as they come.

"I would have loved to have been back playing earlier than this but it hasn't worked out. With that said, I still feel like I'm making progress and doing the right things I need to do to come back and be a stronger player."
