Maurice Edu gets hosed by Canadian airline shutting down

Maurice Edu, fresh off of getting his work permit and visas in line for his move to Rangers, got caught with another problem on his way to Glasgow. It seems his chosen airline ceased operations, leaving him unable to get to Scotland when he intended.

Zoom Airlines, based out of Ottawa, shut down yesterday without warning. To say people were caught off guard is an understatement. Now it seems that the delay is likely to cost Edu his start in Scottish football, a debut that would have come against Celtic, Rangers' greatest rival.

So let this be a lesson to all of you. When traveling abroad, don't choose the low-cost Canadian alternative.

Hahaha...really? Someone and Old Firm club just bought for $10 million is taking low cost charter carriers? I would have thought Rangers would give him the full on British Airways clubworld treatment via Heathrow.

My thoughts exactly, ian. Someone got busted for going on the cheap.
