Happy Birthday Damarcus Beasley

Beasley shows off the silverware with Ally McCoist.

Damarcus Beasley played his second game since returning from what was thought to be a season-ending knee injury. He started for Rangers in the Scottish Cup and scored a goal -- on his birthday! Looking forward to seeing Beasley with the US team at Wembley on Wednesday. BEASLEY SURPRISED BY FINAL SPOT

Rangers midfielder DaMarcus Beasley admits his selection for the Scottish Cup final against Queen of the South caught him and his family by surprise.

The American's season looked to be over in November when he sustained a knee injury against Stuttgart in the Champions League.

However, the former PSV Eindhoven player regained his fitness ahead of schedule to make a substitute's appearance against St Mirren in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League last Monday.

Beasley then celebrated his 26th birthday by starting against Queens and scoring in Rangers' 3-2 win over the Irn-Bru First Division side.

USA winger DaMarcus Beasley has vowed to put a dent in Joe Hart's England debut with a Wembley goal.

Manchester City goalkeeper Hart is in line for his first cap on Wednesday night as England manager Fabio Capello tests a number of younger players who have caught his eye.

Beasley was the 21-year-old's team-mate at Eastlands during the 2006/07 season when the American enjoyed a loan spell from PSV Eindhoven before joining current club Rangers.

The pair have remained friends and Beasley, who is back to fitness following five months out with a knee injury, made it clear he would show no mercy should a goal-scoring opportunity come his way during the friendly.
