Former Rangers star DaMarcus Beasley has announced that he’ll retire from playing at the end of the current season with Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo.
The veteran is one of the most decorated players his nation has produced with 126 caps to his name and the only American to appear in four World Cups.

The versatile star joined Rangers in 2007 and enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at Ibrox with two league titles, two Scottish Cups and two League Cups in his three years in Scotland.

Beasley started his career at Chicago Fire,
like current Ger Matt Polster, before stints at PSV Eindhoven and Manchester City before arriving in Glasgow.
After three years in Scotland that saw Beasley play a part in the run to Manchester in 2008 and was instrumental in the 3-0 away win at Lyon in the Champions League.
His post-Rangers career saw him spend a season in Germany with Hannover 96 before he returned to North America with Mexican side Puebla.
Beasley would finally head to Houston in 2014 where he has been a regular for the Dynamo.

In addition to the honours he won while at Rangers, Beasley also lifted two US Open Cups and the MLS Supporters Shield with Chicago Fire, two Eredivisie titles and a domestic cup at PSV Eindhoven and four CONCACAF Gold Cups while representing his country.
Beasley’s final game is currently scheduled to be against LA Galaxy on October 6th – but that could change if Houston reach the MLS playoffs.
