MYLES Beerman has thanked Pedro Caixinha for placing his trust in him and says he is taking each day as it comes rather than setting himself targets for next season.
The 18-year-old does admit he would like to push Lee Wallace when the new campaign kicks off and is dreaming of a European debut.
Caixinha is yet to speak to the defender about where he fits into his plans for a new look squad but Beerman isn’t worried.
He told RangersTV: “I am really pleased the gaffer initially showed interest in me and has now shown a lot of trust in me.
“I haven’t had a chat with him about next season as of yet but hopefully we will soon and see what next season holds.
“He has said he is going to speak to the players but I’m not aware of when or how.
“I try not to expect anything from my side but I have been doing really well and enjoying every single second with the first-team so I need to keep on working hard to get my spot next season.
“Lee Wallace is a great player, he is captain of the team and he has helped me a lot through everything on and off the pitch.
“It will be a good challenge for me to push Lee next season because he is such a good player, I’ll just need to keep working hard and hopefully follow in his footsteps.
“It would be amazing to play in Europe; it is something that everybody talks about in football.”
As well as ambitions with his club Beerman is hoping he has caught the eye of his country. He has represented Malta at Under 21 level and now wants to make the step up to the senior team.
The Maltese are in a World Cup Qualifying group with England and Scotland and while he has eyes on the double header against those countries in September he’d like to be involved sooner.
Beerman continued: “I haven’t heard anything from Malta as yet but hopefully I can just keep kicking on through the ranks.
“I would one hundred percent cancel my holidays if I got a call up for the June game against Slovenia.
“I will keep working hard to be involved for that game but my aim is to just make the squad in general.”
