RECAPS

EXTRA TIME

Maurice Edu should be recuperated from a slight calf injury and will take the field on Sunday when Rangers host Hearts at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow.

Edu went down in the dying moments of Wednesday's draw at Dundee United with an apparent injury to his left leg.

It was later reported by the club that the US international midfielder had been kicked in his left calf and suffered a cramp, a far less serious injury than it initially appeared much to the relief of US national team fans.

Tannadice Park had also been the venue last May where Edu suffered his knee injury which kept him our for seven months of action including last summer Confederations Cup.

Fellow USMNT star DaMarcus Beasley was excluded from Wednesday's 18 man gameday roster and will hope to make the bench versus the Jambos.

Rangers can actually wrap up their 53rd Scottish Premier League championship with a victory in front of their home fans coupled with a Celtic loss versus Hibernian.

Despite the return of defender Madjid Bougherra to the starting lineup, the Light Blues were still unable to find the back of the net versus United, a rarity in any match this season for the Glasgow club.

In the three previous meetings with Hearts this season, Rangers have taken seven of nine points and have outscored the Edinburgh club by a margin of 8-3.

Rangers boss Walter Smith will have a full squad to count on while Hearts will be without Gary Glen, Ryan Stevenson, Janos Balogh, Michael Stewart, Jose Goncalves, Dawid Kucharski, Marian Kello, Gordon Smith and Johnny Stewart
