Beasley's Rangers opens Champions League bid with 2-0 win

DaMarcus Beasley didn't off the bench in Scottish club Rangers' first official match since he was transferred from Dutch champion PSV, a 2-0 win over FK Zeta of Montenegro in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League second round qualifying series.

Former University of Evansville star David Weir and Lee McCulloch scored for Rangers in the second half. It played the last 36 minutes with 10 men after Alan Hutton was dismissed.

With a starting lineup averaging 22 years old and only one starter as old as 25, FK Zeta put up a brave fight against Rangers.

Rangers started the same frontline that started against Chelsea in a 2-0 win on Saturday: Scotsman Kris Boyd and new French signing Jean-Claude Darcheville in attack and McCulloch on the right wing and Charlie Adam, last year's Rangers' top rookie, on the left.
