Beasley aims to Scottish title
May 22nd, 2008 7AM



[AMERICANS ABROAD] The Scottish Premier League will be decided Thursday when Celtic plays at Dundee United and Rangers is at Aberdeen (TV: Setanta pay-per-view, live, 2:45 pm ET). It comes three days after Rangers pulled even with Celtic thanks to a 3-0 win over St. Mirren that saw American DaMarcus Beasley return to action for the first time in nearly six months.

Two goals from Jean-Claude Darcheville and another from Kris Boyd lifted Rangers past St. Mirren, but Celtic maintained its edge on goal difference at plus-four.

Beasley, who was hurt playing in a European Champions League match against Stuttgart, came on in the 77th minute for Nacho Novo.

Two days earlier, Rangers appeared to blow its league title chances when it was tied by Motherwell, 1-1.

It has already won the Scottish League and finished second to Zenit St. Leningrad in the UEFA Cup. It's favored to win the Scottish FA Cup Saturday when it meets Queen of the South.
