BEASLEY ON A HIGH AT RANGERS
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Monday, August 27, 2007
American DaMarcus Beasley is pleased with his move to Rangers, having scored two goals and racking up two assists since joining the Scottish giants in the summer transfer window.

On Tuesday, Rangers travel to the Serbian capital to face Red Star Belgrade in the UEFA Champions league return leg, winning the first, 1-0 on a Nacho Novo late strike.

Thus far, the Scottish club have recorded a perfect four-for-four in their league campaign, and remain undefeated in this years Champions League qualifying.

"Of course I am happy how we are playing," a seemingly content Beasley told YA. "Coming out with a win is what's most important though."

Rangers head Coach Walter Smith has had no trouble inserting the ex-PSV Eindhoven player into the starting lineup, with his only doubt being which side to play the two-footed American. Beasley himself, though, seems to have no preference on the matter.

"I like both the left and the right side," stated the 25 year old. "As long as I play in one of those two positions I am happy."

"I can help out my teammates on either side, and doing what I want to do as long as I am successful."

The Indiana native has scored four times in the Champions League, three of them coming in PSV's run to the semi-finals in the 2004 campaign, and the winning goal last month in Rangers third round away leg against FK Zeta.
