Glenn Middleton hasn’t exactly had it go all his own way at Rangers since arriving at the club from Norwich City.
The 19-year-old winger got a chance to move to Hibernian on loan over this season, but after only six league outings, the youngster failed to impress.
Hibernian confirmed that Middleton’s season-long loan spell at the club had been terminated on Friday, meaning the 19-year-old would return to the Light Blues.
Alan Hutton has recently commented on Middleton’s predicament, claiming he could potentially seal another move away from Ibrox.
“It’s been difficult for him when he burst onto the scene I was really excited by him. Watching him, he was quick, he was direct, he looked a real threat,” Hutton told Football Insider.
“He obviously went out on loan to get more game time but it’s just not worked out. I don’t think he’s been in squads and stuff, he’s been left out, so it’s obviously not a great fit for him there.
“The ideal situation is for him to come back to his club, train and see from there. Who knows what Gerrard’s thinking? Does he want him or does he not? There’s no point in a player like that being at a club where he’s not even playing.
“You might as well go back to your club and either get another loan to a club where you’re going to play or try and make it at your own team.”
Gerrard now has a decision to make for his squad between now and the end of the season. With the likes of Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent excelling at this moment, and with Jordan Jones on the verge of a return from injury – it could be quite straight forward.
Middleton should expect to leave the club in January with no space available for him at the Light Blues, and he hasn’t justified himself enough to prove his worth to the club as of yet.
