Maurice Edu took full advantage of his start against St Mirren to score the winning goal in a 2-1 win. Marcus DaBeasley also started the match but left the match after 15 minutes with an injury to the ribs.
Walter Smith is being a bit coy about Edu's chances of replacing Barry Feguson who is out of the Rangers line up after the SPL ban. However, Rangers are running out of midfield options with Lee McCulloch also out with an ankle injury. Edu's noteworthy performance should open up the door for more starting minutes.
