'Delighted', 'What a signing' - Rangers fans rave over deadline day swoop for attacker
Rangers have completed the signing of Glenn Middleton from Norwich City on Wednesday afternoon and Gers fans are impressed with the recruitment of the Scotland Under-19 winger.
Middleton has joined the Gers’ Academy squad but is highly rated and regularly impressed for both Norwich’s Under-23 and Scotland’s Under-19 sides.
The winger enjoys a growing reputation and was in contention for the Scotland Goal of the Year award for his strike for the under-17 side against Montenegro in March 2017.
Rangers fans are delighted to see the Light Blues continue their impressive work during the transfer window and are looking forward to seeing Middleton in a Gers shirt.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
delighted with this signing! I've seen him play for Scotland under-19s, he's brilliant!

The scouting department have done a hell of job since coming in. Adding Martin, Docherty, Cummings, Goss & Murphy while adding Middleton to the development squad is great business.

Can't say I know much about Middleton but the obligatory YouTube highlights look encouraging – pacy, tenacious, direct and can finish. Touted by RFC as a youth signing but wouldn't be surprised if he's pushing for a squad place in the second half of the season. https://t.co/ft7juBRwFh

Rangers boss Graeme Murty will know Middleton well after coaching the youngster in Norwich’s Academy before moving north to join Rangers in August 2016.
Middleton never made a senior appearance for Norwich’s first-team but was a regular in their Under-23 side this season competing in Premier League 2.
The 18-year-old has been capped seven times at Under-19 and fourteen times at Under-17 level and recently played for the Under-19 squad in their three matches in November’s UEFA European Championship Qualifiers against Luxembourg, Armenia and Czech Republic.
Middleton is the second player to swap Carrow Road for Ibrox this transfer window after Russell Martin joined the Gers earlier this month.
