Does Glasgow Rangers starlet Myles Beerman have a future at Ibrox?

Myles Beerman's future at Rangers isn't looking all that promising at the moment.

The Malta international joined Queen of the South on a half-season loan deal in January but has only made four appearances for the Championship side since leaving Rangers.

This past weekend, the 18-year-old was an unused substitution in their 1-0 win at Dumbarton and it makes you wonder whether he has a future at Ibrox.

If he isn't good enough to start for a mid-table Championship side then how does he expect to compete with the likes of Lee Wallace, Declan John and even Andy Halliday for a left-back slot next season?

Halliday proved himself a very decent makeshift option at left-back due to injuries to Wallace and John recently, and Beerman is hardly making the right kind of noises on loan at Queen of the South.

It's worth noting that he is very young and already has one cap for his country, but even at 18, Beerman, who played a number of games toward the end of last season when Pedro Caixinha took over, should be playing for the Championship side if the quality was there, and the fact that he isn't seems pretty ominous.

Graeme Murty, when he was Rangers' youth team boss, raved about the youngster last year after facing Celtic, telling the Scottish Sun: "Myles is a natural left-back. He’s quick, pacy and deals with the ball really well.

“There are obviously areas for him to develop but he’ll develop quicker playing against people like Patrick Roberts. My hamstrings had a twinge of sympathy for Myles when Celtic took Patrick off and put James Forrest on.

“He can’t buy that experience and it’s something he has to use in his career going forward.”

But 10 months on from those comments, it looks like Beerman has a lot of work to do before he's anywhere near the Gers' senior set-up again.
