Rangers fans were left drooling over the performance of wonderkid Glenn Middleton after he ran riot in the Under-20s’ 3-0 win against Mühlenkreis in the Volksbank Cup on Thursday.
Middleton, 18, joined the Light Blues in January after quitting Norwich and he has already has a massive impact in the development squad by helping them win a number of their matches against teams across Europe.
On Thursday, he was crucial for the Gers as they beat German side Mühlenkreis.
He forced an own goal to open the scoring when he crossed the ball into the box, only for it to be turned into the back of the next by a Mühlenkreis defender.
Serge Atakayi and Zak Rudden rounded off an emphatic 3-0 win for the Rangers Under-20s side.
Hours earlier, Middleton was on the scoresheet himself in a 1-1 draw with Hamburg.
Now, fans on Twitter have been urging the club to fast track Middleton to the first-team for the final game of the season against Hibernian at Easter Road on Saturday.
One Gers fan claimed that the teenage attacker was just “too good for words”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
He's just too good for words

Surely @Glenn_M22 deserves his first team chance. Virtually every time there’s an update from the games, he is involved in any positive for us.

Got to reward @Glenn_M22 will a place in the squad for Sunday. If the result goes our way with 10-15 mins left, would love to see him on the park

Middleton joined Rangers in January but due to his participation in the Volksbank Cup, it’s very unlikely that he will be included in the senior squad to play against Hibs this weekend.
The Under-20s play Fulham and Red Bull Brasil on Friday so Middleton will have more chances to impress, but the limited break between those games and the Scottish Premiership finale means that fans will have to wait until next season to see him in the first team.
In other Rangers news, this £26,000-a-week Gers midfielder is on the verge of having his deal torn up.
