Queen of the South manager Gary Naysmith has confirmed that Myles Beerman has had his loan deal at the club terminated and he will return to Rangers earlier than expected.
Beerman, 19, joined the Scottish Championship club on a temporary basis in January, but has only managed to make four appearances in all competitions and has been left out of the matchday squad for the last three fixtures.
The Scottish Sun reports that the Malta international was not due to play in the season finale against Brechin on Saturday, so Naysmith has decided to send the defender back to Ibrox now rather than wait for his loan deal to reach it’s natural conclusion.
“The boys have gone back to their clubs,” said Naysmith, as quoted by the Sun.
“We took a bit of a risk with three of them as we needed to boost squad numbers back in January and we are grateful for what the boys gave us.”
“The moves have probably not worked out as well as anyone would have hoped but that is football.
“We are thankful that they helped us when we were short and we wish them well in the future.”
Beerman contract at Rangers is due to expire in June.
He is not the only defender who may be worrying about his future in Govan as left-back Lee Wallace is currently suspended and is widely expected to leave in the summer.
Football Insider verdict
Beerman should surely be handed another one or two-year deal at Ibrox because he is clearly someone who could be a decent squad player in a few years’ time. He is 19-years-old and while his loan at Queen of the South didn’t work out, he is still young and his time at the Palmerston club would have done him the world of good. Pedro Caixinha clearly saw something when he called him up to the senior squad last season and it may be worth Graeme Murty’s time in taking a look at him in the last few weeks of this term – but only if second spot is confirmed.
