A few heads were turned in January, when Myles Beerman left Rangers for Gzira United.

After all, the vast majority had never heard of the Maltese Premier League outfit.

Therefore, it was perhaps even more alarming that for some time, the Gers loanee was failing to earn a starting berth with his new club.

Yet, he now seems to have proven his worth.

The full-back played the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 victory over Senglea Athletic, at the weekend.

In so doing, Beerman’s Gzira moved up to third in the Maltese Premier League. A spot that holds considerable significance.

If they can hold on to third position, they will earn a place in the preliminary round of Europa League qualifying.

Should they go a step further and usurp Hibernians in second, they would go straight into the first qualifying round.

Therefore, the 20-year-old full international has a lot to play for between now and the end of the season.

Having not played for the Gers since May 2017, his future at Ibrox looks bleak.

However, should he do enough to earn a permanent deal with Gzira, he could feasibly come up against the Gers in Europa League qualifying, next season.
