Two Rangers wingers set to leave Ibrox on loan with destinations agreed - report

Rangers wingers Glenn Middleton and Josh McPake are set to leave Ibrox on loan with destinations already agreed for both players, according to the Scottish Sun.

Middleton will reportedly rejoin St Johnstone, the club at which he spent the second half of last season.

The 21-year-old impressed at McDiarmid Park, scoring three goals and notching an assist from 13 appearances.


Two of his goals were extremely important, too, with one sealing the Saints’ top-six finish in the Premiership and the other a stunning free-kick in a Scottish Cup semi-final, a competition they would go on to win.

Meanwhile, McPake will reportedly team up with former Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson at newly-promoted EFL League One side Morecambe.

He spent the second half of last season in the English fourth tier with Harrogate Town, scoring four goals in 23 league appearances and featuring in their FA Trophy final win over Concord Rangers at Wembley.

This will be a fourth loan spell for the 19-year-old, who has also previously represented Dundee and Morton.

Good moves for speedy Rangers pair?

Callum Davidson had previously spoken of his desire to bring Middleton back to Perth and after some negotiation, he appears to have got his man.

It makes sense for the Scotland youth international to return to a place where he fared well before, given his previous loan struggles at the likes of Bradford and Hibernian, and more Premiership experience can only be a good thing.

As for McPake, this move represents a step up in standard from last season’s Harrogate loan.

With formerly Rangers-linked attacker Carlos Mendes Gomes recently leaving the Shrimps, there should be a spot on the left wing to fill and McPake has a chance to show what he can do at a decent level.

The only concern here is that his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, so unless he signs an extension prior to his exit, he’ll be in a relatively precarious position.
