Rangers have agreed a deal with Queen of the South for Maltese international full-back Myles Beerman to join the Doonhamers on loan.
Beerman, 18, made his senior debut for the Gers last season and went on to make eight first-team appearances before picking up his first cap for Malta in their win over Ukraine last year.
The Gers confirmed the move on their official Twitter account with Beerman heading to Dumfries on a temporary deal for the rest of the season.

Gers fans are happy to see the 18-year-old get the chance to compete for regular first-team football and continue his development with the Scottish Championship side – with one claiming he will “run amok” for Queens.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Good luck Myles get some first team football under your belt 👍⚽🇬🇧

Good move for him. He'll run a mock for them and get a good run of first team football then come back better. Good luck Myles

Beerman joined Rangers in 2016 from Manchester City and was a stand-out in the Under-20’s for Graeme Murty before stepping up into the senior side last season after a string of injuries.
The 18-year-old made his debut against Kilmarnock before starting six of Rangers’ next eight games – including two Old Firm clashes with bitter rivals Celtic.
Queen of the South are currently sixth in the Scottish Championship and are managed by former Everton and Scotland left-back Gary Naysmith.
The Dumfries-based Doonhamers are two points off a playoff place as they look to return to Scottish football’s top tier for the first time since 1964.
