GLASGOW, SCOTLAND (AP) - American midfielder Maurice Edu was stretchered off in the first half Wednesday night of Glasgow Rangers’ 3-0 loss to visiting Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League.

Edu, a member of the U.S. World Cup team, left in the 43rd minute after injuring his left knee on a lunging tackle by John Rankin. The Californian hurt the same knee on May 24, 2009, during a challenge by Dundee United’s Darren Dods, an injury that needed surgery and sidelined the Californian until that Dec. 21.

“It’s obviously quite painful for him, and we’ll have to wait until morning to find out how serious it is,” Rangers manager Walter Smith said. “It’s a concern, but until we get a look at him tomorrow, we won’t know for sure if there is any major damage or not.”
