WALTER SMITH has told DaMarcus Beasley there'll be no need for him to leave Rangers if he keeps playing like he did at Dundee United last night.
The American winger was excellent against the Arabs, scoring a stunning first goal in the 3-0 win and setting up the clinching third for Kenny Miller.
Beasley was a constant thorn in United's defence and fans chanted his name as he was replaced by Steven Naismith seven minutes from the end.
The former PSV Eindhoven player has admitted he might need to move clubs for the sake of getting first-team football ahead of next summer's World Cup.
Until recently, he'd barely been seen in a Gers shirt this season but has made a good impact in the last fortnight or so.
Smith insists that if the 27-year-old can reproduce that form on a regular basis, he'll get the games he needs at Ibrox to secure a place in his nation's squad for the finals.
The manager said: "DaMarcus is playing very well for us at the moment and scored a terrific goal at Tannadice.
"He gave a really good performance too and we're delighted to see him like that again as he has had a lot of injury problems.
"After coming back from his serious knee problem, he has had things go wrong with his hamstring and his groin.
