DaMarcus Beasley made his debut for Rangers in a 3-0 win at Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday to open the 2007-08 Scottish Premier League season.

Following Rangers' lackluster performance against Montenegrin club FK Zeta in Champions League qualifying on Wednesday -- a 2-0 win at Ibrox -- Charlie Adam was dropped, and Beasley replaced him on the left wing.

Beasley had a chance to put Rangers ahead early in the game when he broke free of the Inverness defense, but he couldn't beat goalie Michael Fraserfrom a tight angle.

Barry Ferguson put Rangers ahead minutes later, and substitute Nacho Novoand Ferguson scored to seal the victory.

Rangers got more good news on Sunday: defending champion Celtic could only tie Kilmarnock, 0-0, at home.
