Rangers fans are delighted with teenage ace Myles Beerman on Twitter after the left-back was one of their side’s only stand-out performers against Kilmarnock during his debut.
Beerman shone on the left side of defence against Lee McCulloch’s Killies, as the Gers kept a clean sheet at Rugby Park despite fielding a makeshift back four including Beerman.
The 17-year-old replaced captain Lee Wallace with aplomb, with his finest moment coming in the form of nutmegging attacker Connor Salmon twice.
The Maltese left-back is the latest of a long line of Gers academy products to be given their chance, as Beerman looks to follow in the footsteps of Barrie McKay who has shone this term.
Rangers fans took to Twitter to applaud the performance of Beerman, despite the overall display and result leaving a sour taste in the mouth.
Fans were hopeful that they will get to see more of the young defender after he starred on his debut for the 54-time Scottish champions.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

I really liked the look of young Beerman tonight, good to see someone so young so comfortable on the ball. Big Bates done well also👍🏻

Myles Beerman impressed me more in 1 match than Lee Wallace has all season. Very solid, didn't look out of place at all. Cracking prospect

The two-time Malta Under-21’s international could now be part of the side that faces Aberdeen on Sunday, in a match that is must-win if the Gers want to finish second.
