Glenn Middleton could be set to leave Rangers for another loan spell in the coming weeks, according to the Herald (9.35).
The winger spent the first half of the season on loan at Hibernian, but struggled to establish himself as a regular in the capital, making just sox appearances in the Scottish Premiership.
That prompted the Gers to recall him from his spell at Easter Road earlier than initially planned.
But it might not be long before the youngster is sent back out by the Gers, with the report from the Herald suggesting that manager Steven Gerrard has dropped a major hint about the 20-year-old going out on loan again this month.
Is this the right move for Middleton?
Obviously, an awful lot of that depends on which club he eventually ends up at, but right now, you would have to say that a loan feels like the right thing for him.
Things didn’t quite work out for him at Hibernian, but there’s no reason why, given the right kind of backing from a club, he can’t flourish in the second half of this season.
That would be hugely beneficial to both him and Rangers, because the reality is that given the boatload of options available to Gerrard in wide areas, Middleton would be unlikely to get his shot last Ibrox any time soon.
