Footballer shocked at fire attack

by  | 

Rangers attacker DaMarcus Beasley has spoken of his shock after his car was deliberately set on fire.

American Beasley's blazing BMW 6-Series was found in Queen's Gardens in Glasgow's west end just after 11pm on Monday.

Police said they were treating it as wilful fireraising and were trying to trace the occupants of a white car seen in the area.

Beasley's BMW was parked outside his home when it was targeted, the Daily Record said.

United States international Beasley told the newspaper: "I don't know how to take it really. It's pretty crazy.

"If it is a Celtic-Rangers thing then it's obviously not good.

"It has shocked me - you don't expect to be targeted like this. But I'm not going to be too upset by it."

He told the newspaper that the incident had not really made him think twice about playing for Rangers.
