Could Myles Beerman's emergence help Rangers secure Tosin Adarabioyo this summer?

The Manchester City defender is perfect for Glasgow Rangers and would excel at Ibrox like his former teammate.

Myles Beerman’s recent emergence at Rangers shows the club’s new manager Pedro Caixinha is not afraid to give youth a chance. But could the 18-year-old’s swift upturn in fortune give one of his former Manchester City teammates something to think about?

Earlier this season, HITC Sport suggested that centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo would be the ideal summer signing for a Rangers side in need of quality defensive reinforcements.

The 19-year-old is highly rated at City; the problem is the competition for places means he is likely to leave for free when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

If that happens there will be a long queue for his services, yet Beerman could be the ace in the pack for Rangers if they want to bring another exciting young player to Ibrox.

The 18-year-old left City in 2016 and the full-back will know Adarabioyo well from their time together at the Etihad Stadium.

With three consecutive appearances for Rangers under his belt Beerman looks set for a prolonged run in the side, and if Adarabioyo is smart he will consider following him to the Scottish Premiership.

The two could then continue their development alongside each other, allowing Caixinha to sign one of the most exciting teenage defenders in England and ease the pressure on the ageing Clint Hill and the less than impressive Rob Kiernan in the process.
