Can Glenn Middleton step up in next two Rangers fixtures?

Rangers are set to be without winger Ryan Kent until after the international break, which opens up the door for somebody to impress in the next two fixtures.

The Gers travel to Spartak Moscow on Thursday evening in the Europa League group stages, before hosting Motherwell in the league at Ibrox on Sunday.

Manager Steven Gerrard revealed he is set to be without regular starter Kent due to injury and somebody will need to step up in his absence.

Rangers youngster Glenn Middleton is certainly an option to come into the wide position, but can he shine in the next two fixtures.

 

The 18-year-old has been a squad player for the Light Blues this season and manager to break into the first team, without cementing his spot in the starting XI.

He has made 14 senior appearances so far this campaign and managed three goals in return, but completed 90 minutes on just one occasion.

Middleton is a highly-rated attacker that has shown glimpses of his quality at senior level and is a brilliant dribbler of the ball that frightens defences.

The left-winger could add an injection of pace and trickery in the final third for the Scottish giants, something they will need away to Spartak.

Rangers would love a couple of positive results before the next break and it will be intriguing to see if Gerrard turns to the Scotland Under-21 international.
