PREVIEW: WEEKEND SCOTTISH ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Friday, August 20, 2010
Rangers return to the sight where they claimed their 53rd league crown as Maurice Edu and company travel to Easter Road to take on Hibernian.

Hibernian - Rangers

Rangers kicked off their 2010-2011 Scottish Premier League campaign with a win last weekend versus Kilmarnock and will be out to pick up another three points on Sunday versus Hibs.

Edu started and went the distance against Killie and will likely do the same this weekend in head coach Walter Smith's midfield.

The US international was paired with forward Steven Naismith in the Light Blues' central midfield in the opener and could very well see himself in a similar alignment on Sunday should Steven Davis still not be ready to return from an illness.

New arrival James Beattie from English Premier League club Stoke City went 80 minutes versus Killie and will be looking for his first goal as he joins Kenny Miller up top.

Hamstring injuries to Andy Webster and John Fleck will keep them out of action a while longer while Lee McCulloch remains suspended.

Talk of Manchester City winger Vladimir Weiss and Rapid Vienna striker Nikica Jelavic joining the Glasgow club has recently surfaced in the Scottish press and would help bolster some much needed depth to Smith's squad.

Hibernian emerged victorious from their season opener with a gutsy 2-3 win at Motherwell, a rematch of last spring's thrilling 6-6 draw that saw Hibs cough up a four goal second half lead.

Ian Murray is still suspended and will miss out for the hosts who are directed by first year head coach John Hughes.

Notes

Dominic Cervi will be watching from the bench as the backup goalkeeper during Celtic's league home opener versus St. Mirren.
