Rangers winger Glenn Middleton put in an impressive shift during Scotland’s win over South Korea at the Toulon Tournament – and Gers fans were delighted with the teenager’s performance for the Tartan Army.
The former Norwich man set up Billy Gilmour for Scotland’s opening goal in the 2-1 win to give the young Scots one foot in the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament before being replaced late in the second-half.
Middleton’s performances left Gers fans hoping to see him given a chance in the first-team under Steven Gerrard – with one fan even naming him as one of the best three attacking players in the world.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
That Glenn Middleton can’t be too far away from the 1st team.

I’d imagine Glenn Middleton won’t be far away from the first team next season. He looks a very good prospect indeed ????

Can Stevie G just build his team around this wee Middleton chappie? Seems to utterly destroy any other u21 team he comes up against! Billy Gilmour is just a gutter though. ????????♂️ https://t.co/mrWxkWbfwF

Should have done everything we could to have kept him. Seems to be doing well down at Chelsea though. Hopefully Glenn Middleton gets a chance pre season that lad looks like he could have something about him.

Middleton joined the Gers on deadline day in January and has made a massive impression with the Under-20s since his arrival – with standout performances in a number of games on the second-half of the season.
The winger’s signing surprised many after consistently impressing for Norwich’s Academy sides but he was allowed to depart Carrow Road and join his boyhood heroes in January.
Steven Gerrard’s arrival could see a number of the youngsters in the squad hopeful they can earn a place in his first-team squad after working with Liverpool’s Under-18’s prior to taking the reins at Ibrox.
