Normally reliable Rangers club insider Four Lads Had a Dream has claimed that Hull City and Coventry City are interested in taking Rangers talent Glenn Middleton on-loan for the season.

The spritely winger had originally been linked with a move to Doncaster Rovers, with some reports suggesting the deal was already done [Daily Record].

But after former Doncaster boss Grant McCann moved to Hull City, the move appeared to have fallen through.

It’s McCann who appears back in for the player with the promise of Championship football next season an exciting prospect for Middleton.

The English second tier is a superb level for Middleton to test his talents in.

League One has also proved a positive development ground for Rangers talent.

 

Greg Docherty excelled at Shrewsbury last season whilst Ross McCrorie will spend the season on-loan at Portsmouth.

Still only 19, Middleton is rated highly at Ibrox but could find opportunities limited this season.

The Ibrox club has signed Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie, Greg Stewart and Sheyi Ojo, who can all play in Middleton’s position.

Talks over Ryan Kent also continue [STV], with the Liverpool loanee also ahead of Middleton in the race to the first team.

A loan move makes sense and it’s interesting that McCann is reportedly looking at the player again despite moving clubs himself.

It means the Northern Irishman is clearly an admirer of Middleton, which may bode well in his hunt for minutes this campaign.

Coventry City also poses an interesting proposition for the Scotland U21 international.
