PREVIEW: ST. JOHNSTONE - RANGERS
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Tuesday, April 5, 2011
Maurice Edu and Rangers hope to rebound from Saturday's loss with a visit to McDiarmid Park on Tuesday to play St. Johnstone.

Edu looks set to start in Walter Smith's midfield once again in the midweek encounter with the Saints.

Rangers missed out on a golden opportunity to seize first place in the Scottish Premier League when they lost at home over the weekend to Dundee United.

The Light Blues looked as if they had control late in the second half but two goals in the final 20 minutes earned the Arabs a comeback victory at Ibrox.

Rangers will need to reassert their authority on Tuesday against the Saints who are always very strong on the defensive end at home having registered eight shutouts this season in front of the home fans.

The big news the last few days in Glasgow has been the sale of Rangers to venture capitalist Craig Whyte.

Word trickled out early on Tuesday that terms had been agreed to between Whyte and current owner Sir David Murray.

Final approval from the club's board of directors is expected to happen later this week.

Steven Anderson and Collin Samuel are both questionable for St. Johnstone while but Jamie Adams, Graham Gartland, Jody Morris and Sam Parkin all remain out.

On-loan defender Kyle Bartley has been ruled out for the remainder of the season in addition to Madjid Bougherra, Vladimir Weiss, Kirk Broadfoot and Lee McCulloch whom are all out injured.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
