'Proper prospect' – Rangers fans want winger in first-team after international display

Rangers winger Glenn Middleton had an impressive Toulon Tournament with Scotland as he burst onto the scene for the Scots’ Under-21s side – and Gers fans are desperate to see him in the first-team squad at Ibrox.

Middleton made the most of his first call-up to the Under-21s by helping Scot Gemmill’s side to a fourth-place finish in the prestigious tournament.

The teenager has been winning rave reviews in the Gers’ Academy and fans want to see him rewarded for his performances with a spot in Steven Gerrard’s first-team squad when the Light Blues return for pre-season training.

Middleton revealed he is “looking forward” to pre-season training on his personal Twitter account – leading one Gers fan to say the former Norwich youngster is proof of how “bright the future is” for the Light Blues.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Middleton joined the Gers from Norwich on deadline day in January but has yet to be involved with the first-team on a match-day yet.

The winger was a constant source of goals for the Light Blues in the second-half of the season as they continued their Games Programme against elite youth sides from across the UK and Europe.

The 18-year-old has two years remaining on his Ibrox deal as he looks to make the step up to the first-team side sooner rather than later.

In other Rangers transfer news, they are leading the hunt to sign an in-demand attacker from Liverpool.
