Maurice Edu and Rangers notched another win, this time at the hands of Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup on Wednesday evening at Rugby Park.

Edu once again started and went the full 90 minutes in the victory.

The midfielder had been rested for Rangers' previous League Cup clash, however head coach Walter Smith still elected to give Edu the start against Killie.

The win for the Light Blues extends a stretch of futility experienced by Killie who have not beaten Rangers at Rugby Park since 1994 and have not even registered a goal against the Glasgow club at their home stadium since 2007.

Rangers got a goal in each half, the first one coming in the 24th minute from a superb Andrew Little strike.

Steven Naismith flicked on a ball for Little who charged into the box and ripped a stunner from 18 yards into the top left corner of the net.

Rangers were lumbering coming out of the halftime break and it looked for all the world that Killie would garner an equalizer in the early stages of the second half as the home team earned a handful of corner kicks.

But 15 minutes into the second half, Naismith put the match to bed with a strike from the left side of the area that found the inside of the right post.

Rangers will now await their opponent for the next round of the League Cup when the draw occurs on Friday.

Next up for Edu and company is a Scottish Premier League contest with Inverness.
