When Rangers winger Glenn Middleton went out on loan to Hibernian at the beginning of the season, Rangers fans were in two minds.

This was one of their key prospects set to play in front of fans who generally don’t have much care for his parent side.

But now the club’s support is feeling even more aggrieved with Middleton turning out for the Hibs reserves during the week.

The former Norwich youth might’ve scored a double for the Hibs second string, but he could well have been doing the same for Rangers.

Middleton got two as the Hibs reserves thrashed their St. Mirren counterparts 6-0 in the Reserves League Cup.

But Middleton’s development loan was about the youngster getting game time in man’s football in front of real crowds in matches which really mean something.


Middleton is yet to feature in any squads under new Hibs boss Jack Ross and doubts are now starting to be raised about the suitability of the Edinburgh club for the youngster.


Signed for the Easter Road club by Paul Heckingbottom, Middleton has made eight appearances for the Edinburgh side this season.

But the 19-year-old hasn’t been seen since playing against Livingston in the 2-2 draw on the 30th of October.

Considering the youngster was playing Europa League football last season, is it time to recall him and send him elsewhere?
