The car belonging to Rangers player DaMarcus Beasley was subject to a fire-bomb attack outside the midfielder's home on Tuesday evening in Glasgow.

Beasley is the owner of a BMW 650i that was parked on a residential street when it was suddenly attacked.

The incident to the Indiana native's vehicle is the second time in the last 13 months that his car has been vandalized.

Police reports say that the attackers pulled up outside Beasley's vehicle and threw a bomb into the car before leaving the scene.

The former PSV Eindhoven commented that, at this time, he is personally unable to give any descriptions of what he saw transpire.

"I don't have any comment," Beasley divulged to YA. "The police and the club have said it's better not to."

This is the second time this season that police have had to investigate an incident targeting an American player with Rangers.

Maurice Edu was subject to racial taunts following an October match outside Ibrox Stadium, an incident with Glasgow police are still investigating.

Like last fall's Edu situation, Rangers were quick to also condemn Tuesday's attack.

"This is a disturbing and deplorable incident and the Club will do everything we can to assist the Police with their investigations," Rangers spokeswoman Carol Patton told YA.

Beasley is currently out with a thigh injury and hopes to return to action in the next two weeks.

This is crazy. Curious to all you people who understand the mindset of people in Scotland is this straight up racial or is it racial and anti-American or is it Celtic supporters? Personally, I think they should both get the hell out of there, it's just not worth it are we are going to have to send Groundskeeper Willie over there to straighten these boys out?
