Edu recieves racist attacks from Rangers fans

Maurice Edu was racially abused by so called Rangers fans after Tuesday night's Champions League beating by Unirea Urziceni. USA midfielder Edu, 23, did not play in the 4-1 Group G defeat but watched the match at Ibrox and says he was targeted by his own club's supporters as he left the stadium.

Edu wrote a message on his Twitter feed which read: "Not sure what hurt more: result last nite or being racially abused by couple of r own fans as I'm getting in my car."

The Rangers Supporters Trust condemned anyone who might have abused Edu, who has been out all season with a knee injury.

Trust spokesman David Edgar told Press Association Sport: "We would absolutely condemn that if that's the case. These are not Rangers fans and they should be caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.''

We will keep you updated on the Rangers actions regarding this issue.
