Edu to Rangers Done--sort of

The $5 million deal to send TFC midfielder Maurice Edu to Glasgow Rangersis done except that Edu must get a work permit.

From what I understand Scottish Premier League rules for work permits are a bit more flexible than the English Premier Leauge, so I don't think the permit will be a problem.

Rangers dealt central defender Carlos Cuellar to Aston Villa earlier in the month for £7.8 million and Rangers didn't waste anytime using the proceeds to pick up striker Pedro Mendes from Portsmouth and Edu. Edu, although not a natural defender, showed promise as a central defender in the U.S. Olympic effort.
