Rangers player Myles Beerman has made a huge admission by stating that he cried over his future at the club after recently making his debut.
The 18-year-old has started the Gers’ last two matches at left-back, helping his team secure two clean sheets and pick up four points as a result.
Pedro Caixinha has put faith into the youngster, who is likely to keep his place in the starting XI, as Rangers aim to secure an unlikely second spot in the Scottish Premiership table.
The versatile defender was handed his debut during the goalless draw against Kilmarnock earlier on in the month as he kept his place in the side for the 3-0 win at Aberdeen on Sunday.
Malta international Beerman moved to England as a young teenager, starting his career with Premier League outfit Manchester City.
Now, in Glasgow, where he will be looking to keep his place in the starting XI, Beerman spoke about how tough it was to get where he is today.
“It’s been a dream to play for Rangers in those last two games and it has made all the sacrifices worthwhile,” said Beerman, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“I’ve been given a great opportunity here. I know I am only in the team because of injuries to the captain and other defenders. I’ve had to take my chance and stay in the team
“The new coach trusts me. He told me just to play my normal game like I do in the reserves. I admit I have had nights where I sat by myself weeping. It wasn’t nice.
“But I had to stay strong and move on and strive to keep going.”
The highly-rated youngster will now focus his attention on league matters and helping his team overtake second-placed Aberdeen in the table.
It is unlikely that Caixinha’s side will be able to close that nine-point gap, but they still have the chance to lift a trophy this season.
The Gers will contest a highly charged Scottish Cup semi-final against Old Firm rivals Celtic on April 23, with the winner set to play either Aberdeen or Hibernian.
