As reported by The Scottish Sun, Rangers left-back Myles Beerman is set to be handed a new deal after making the transition from the U20s side into the firs team.
Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha had been forced into turning to the teenage star after an injury to Lee Wallace but the Maltese defender has stepped up to the plate, winning high praise for his recent performances for the Light Blues.
Now The Sun reckon those performances will be rewarded with a bumper new deal that will improve his wage and likely extend his current deal beyond 2018.
Gers fans haven’t exactly been spoiled with the amount of youngsters making a transition to the first team in recent years so it’s a move that will likely go down well with supporters.
Beerman was in action on Sunday in the Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic and while he didn’t quite show the good form of recent weeks, will have learned a lot from his first derby showdown.
He may get the chance to do it all again this coming weekend when the Light Blues host the Hoops in the final encounter between the sides this season.
If he can produce another performance like the one witnessed at Pittodrie against Aberdeen, it could go a long way to stifling the Celtic attack in Rangers’ efforts to finally get a win over Brendan Rodgers this term.
