Former Rangers defender Beerman signs for Hibernians

The last few seasons haven’t gone according to plan for Myles Beerman.

As a teenager, the Maltese international turned out eight times at the back for the Gers during their 2016/17 campaign [Soccerbase] and showed glimpses of promise.

During that spell in the side, he gave away a costly early penalty in a 5-1 drubbing against Celtic at Ibrox. Yet, overall, for a player with zero experience at senior level, he didn’t fare too badly.

Since the end of that campaign, though, he was unable to get anywhere near the Gers first team.

Loan spells, firstly with Queen of the South, before returns to his native Malta with Birkirkara and most recently, Gzira United, were precursors for his Ibrox exit.

In early June, he confirmed his time was up as a Rangers player in a message to the club’s supporters. At that point, it was unclear what his next step would be.

On Sunday, though, his Twitter account was in use once again, as he confirmed his next destination.

Beerman has signed a three-year deal with Maltese Premier League outfit, Hibernians. 

They are twelve times national champions and finished second in the league to Valetta on goal difference last season [Soccerway].

A year or two ago, this would perhaps have been seen as a big step back for the 20-year-old.

Yet, following a period of loan spells and uncertainty, a three-year deal with one of the biggest outfits on the archipelago, represents a good result.

Plenty of Bears recognised that and wished him well on social media.
