Beasley to quit Rangers for World Cup chance

DaMarcus Beasley is ready to put his World Cup ambitions with the USA ahead of staying with Rangers. The American international has seen his two years at Ibrox marred by injury and has struggled to force his way into manager Walter Smith's plans since returning to fitness this season, starting just one game in the Co-operative Insurance Cup.

"My current situation is not ideal - it's been frustrating," the 27 year old told the Scottish Sun.

"I'm looking to move because I want to play. It's not that I'm not happy with the club, I just want to play."

The left-winger is now eager to secure regular football in a European league to guarantee his place in the USA set-up - where they are pitted against England in Group C - and refused to rule a move out back to the Dutch top tier.

"I'm only 27 and I feel like I have another six, seven or even eight years left," Beasley added.

"My options are open. It might be a move back to Holland or maybe Spain."
