Amad was brought on at half-time, but Eriksen remained on the field and assisted Tristan Crama to equalize from a mixed situation. He was substituted in the 76th minute.
The United youngster, who joined Rangers on loan in January, has enjoyed a bright start to his Ibrox career – scoring on his debut against Ross County last month.
“You could see that he was a constant threat every time he had the ball and he scored in the scoresheet,” said Rangers star Joe Aribeo after Amad’s debut.
Rangers coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst added: “You can see his quality.
“I mean he made the first goal, he was very good in the space in the second post, you can see what he can give the team.
“He has talent but we have to put him on the pitch because he doesn’t have the rhythm like the other players. Overall it was a good performance from him.”
Eriksen, meanwhile, hopes to make Premier League back shortly.
Dane, who signed with Brentford in January, also provide a support in friendly closing against the Southend United league outfit earlier this month.
Eriksen was launched by former club Inter Milan in December after he was banned from Serie A due to being fitted with an implantable defibrillator (ICD).

“I’ve run a lot and checked a lot, so my condition is very good,” Eriksen said. BBC Sport when asked about his return in early February.
“But the football feeling is something you get in games – to get there is still a few weeks away.
“At the moment, when the coach sees me as suitable and wants me to play then I will be able to.
“But for now, we’re just taking it day by day… it’s been built for a long time and it’s still going to be a long building day in and day out.
“It feels like it’s getting closer and [I am] Patience to the right time. “
