D.Beasley's car set on fire outside his Glasgow home

RANGERS ace DaMarcus Beasley's £65,000 BMW has been PETROL BOMBED outside his home.

The American winger, 27, was at the house in Glasgow's plush west end as the attack took place.

It is the second time in 13 months that one of his motors has been targeted.

Last night a source said: "There is no evidence to suggest it was a sectarian attack, but it was the only car on the street that was targeted."

The horrifying attack, described as "disturbing" by Ibrox chiefs, happened late on Monday night.

Beasley heard screeching tyres outside his home - then looked out his window to see the blue 6-series BMW in flames.

It is thought the attackers pulled up beside the vehicle and threw the bomb before speeding off.

It comes after the Rangers ace's £50,000 BMW 650i was broken into and ransacked outside his home in December 2008.

Fellow Gers Allan McGregor, Kevin Thomson and Kenny Miller have all had their cars targeted in the past.

And a string of Celtic stars, including goalie Artur Boruc, have also been hit by yobs.

Beasley, who joined Gers in 2007, has played in two World Cups for the USA - 2002 and 2006.

Strathclyde Police said it was treating the attack "as wilfull fire-raising" and a probe was ongoing.

A Rangers spokesman added: "This is a disturbing, deplorable incident. The club will do everything we can to assist police."
