RANGERS STAR'S CAR IS PETROL BOMBED; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: Mark McGivern

THUGS have firebombed Rangers star DaMarcus Beasley's pounds 65,000 BMW outside his luxury home.

The American winger heard screeching tyres outside his flat and looked out to see his blue 6 Series car in flames.

It's understood the attackers drew up beside the car and threw a petrol bomb.

Police are treating the attack as "wilful". An insider said: "There is no evidence so far to suggest it was sectarian but it was the only car on the street to be targeted.

"Sadly, there are some criminal types who fol low such base motivations."

Beasley's car was attacked in Queen's Gardens in Glasgow's posh Dowanhill shortly after 11pm on Monday.

A Rangers FC spokeswoman said: "This is a disturbing and deplorable incident. The club will do everything we can to assist the police."

Sources at Rangers said the club are stepping up security protection for their players, although the process was under way before the firebombing.

Vandals scrawled graffiti on Ibrox goalkeeper Allan McGregor's Bentley in 2008. His fiancee's Range Rover was also attacked.
