Beattie states ‘Gers ambition

Beattie became the Ibrox club’s first permanent signing for two years and he hopes to link up well with fellow striker Kenny Miller.

“I’ve known Kenny for a while. He’s good friends with Joleon Lescott, who I’m good friends with,” said Beattie.

“I’ve watched him from time to time and I know he’s a great player. I’m looking forward to playing up-front with him, even though it was a bit earlier than I expected to play.

“If you put two good players together, it’s going to be a good partnership. I’m confident that I’ll score goals wherever I play. It doesn’t matter where it is.”
