Done deal: Rangers defender agrees terms for temporary exit
Rangers defender Myles Beerman has joined Scottish Championship Queen of the South on loan until the end of the season, it as been confirmed.
The 18-year-old full-back made eight first-team appearances last season – including an Old Firm debut – before picking up his first international cap for Malta in the win over Ukraine.
Rangers confirmed on their official website on Thursday afternoon that Beerman had agreed terms to exit Ibrox on a temporary basis in order to move south from Glasgow until the summer.
Dumfries-based Queen of the South are currently sixth in the Scottish Championship and are managed by former Everton and Scotland full-back Gary Naysmith who was delighted to secure Beerman on a temporary deal.
“I am delighted that we have been able to add Myles to our squad until the end of the season,” Naysmith said, as quoted by Queen of the South’s website. “He is a young player with a big future ahead of him and hopefully we can help to further his development and he in return can help us in the second half of the season.
“Although only 18, Myles has already made several appearances for Rangers first team as well as making his full international debut for Malta. He will give us another option on the left hand side of the pitch and is comfortable playing as a left back, wing back or a left midfielder.
“He has good energy, good pace and he likes to get forward.”
Beerman joined Rangers in August 2016 from Manchester City and impressed for the Gers’ Under-20’s before making the step up to the first-team last term.
Football Insider verdict:
The chance for Beerman to get out and challenge for regular first-team football is exactly what the teenager needs at this stage in his career. Despite his young age, Beerman is very mature as a player and should thrive in the competitiveness of Scotland’s second tier. The opportunity to work with Gary Naysmith – a very experienced Premier League and internationals full-back in his own right – should help him improve as a player and hopefully allow him to return to Ibrox and compete for a first-team place. A reap opportunity for Beerman to kick on to the next level in his development as a player and stake a claim for a long-term future at Ibrox.
