Rangers midfielder Glenn Middleton has departed for St Johnstone for the remainder of the season on loan, the club announced today, and fans are delighted for him.

The Scotland u21 winger has been limited to just one appearance this campaign for Steven Gerrard’s men. He came on as a substitute in the 4-0 League Cup win to Falkirk.

Middleton moves to McDiarmid Park in search of some first-team football. He signed for Rangers in January 2018 from Norwich City and is highly rated at the club.

 

Saints manager Callum Davidson has been keen to bolster his attacking options. His side are currently 9th in the Scottish Premier League with one win in their last five matches.

They are however into the final of the Scottish League Cup final, after hammering Hibernian 3-0 in the semi-final at Hampden Park.

The move to Perth should be a good one for Middleton, who’s previously had loan spells with Hibernian and Bradford City.

The 21-year-old has struggled to get into the first-team at Ibrox this season as Gerrard’s men have taken the league by storm.

Kemar Roofe, Ryan Kent, and Alfredo Morelos in particular have been in fantastic form this campaign, limiting any first-team opportunities for the youngster.
