Rangers crock Edu: Biggest year of my 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."
