Football Insider analyses the three talking points from Rangers’ 2-0 win against Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
Beerman is a rising star
Myels Beerman played in just his third senior game for Rangers on Saturday afternoon, but from his display many would believe he was a seasoned professional. The 18-year-old was confident enough to charge at the Partick Thistle defence on numerous occasions and even tried a couple of long range efforts. The Gers have sometimes missed a ball carrier this season and if Beerman carries on, Lee Wallace may find that he is not a guaranteed starter when he returns from injury.
McKay must be sold
There is no doubting that Barrie McKay is a talented player, but on Saturday he simply gave the performance of someone not good enough for Rangers before rightfully being brought off at half time. Whether there is issues off the field for the Scotsman is unclear, but with his contract set to enter it’s final year in the summer the Gers may be better off getting rid of him rather than extending his deal if displays like the Partick one continues. The young attacker has previously been linked with a £6million move to RB Leipzig and the Gers should definitely sell him if they receive an offer close to that amount in the summer.
Miller needs a new deal
Astonishingly, veteran Kenny Miller has been allowed to come into the final two months of his current deal at Rangers, but it is clear that the Glasgow giants need to extend that deal. At 37 the 70-time capped Scotland international has shown that he still has what it takes to play at the highest level for Rangers with three goals from his last two matches to add to his eight goal total and he simply needs to be kept on at the club.
