DISAPPOINTMENT was the overriding emotion for Myles Beerman following last night’s Irn Bru Cup defeat to Dumbarton.

Rangers Colts turned in a strong and dominant performance against their Championship opponents, but early goals in each half from Calum Gallagher and Mark Stewart were enough for the Sons despite Ryan Hardie pulling one back for Gers with 18 minutes left.

And, speaking to RangersTV, Beerman said: “We’re obviously disappointed we didn’t get the result we planned to get. We did our best and intended to play the football we normally play and do our best.

“But, at the end of the day, we didn’t get the result so we are all disappointed.

“It’s one of them though that we have to recognise we are developing players, and this is first-team football. We did well in what is our first game after pre-season, and all-in-all, we just have to keep working and keep on developing.”

Beerman saw plenty of involvement in the Rangers first team towards the end of last season, and, like any young player, he is determined to try and work his way back into contention there once again.

He continued: “Of course. It’s the aim of all of us in the 20s team, but for me, I just have to keep on working hard to try and impress the manager.”

On the international front, Malta have two exciting World Cup qualifying matches coming up against Scotland and England at the beginning of September.

And, while he would naturally be delighted to be involved, it’s not an issue which is at the forefront of his mind at the moment.

He added: “It’s one of them where we just need to wait and see. At the end of the day, I’m still developing, so for me, it’s all about game time and keeping on getting that and developing. I’m not too worried about it.”
