Can Rangers attacker Glenn Middleton prove a point with Scotland’s Under-21s?

Highly-rated youngster Glenn Middleton was drafted into the Scotland Under-21s squad for the international break and he could enhance his Rangers chances with some strong performances.

The 18-year-old attacker has been included in the young Scottish squad for qualifying fixtures against Ukraine and England over the next fortnight.

Middleton can continue his rapid rise by starring at Under-21s international level and has the ability to do just that.

He is a versatile attacker that is usually deployed as a wide man and would send out a real statement if he could catch the eye, especially against a star-studded England.

The left-winger has developed into a full Rangers first teamer this season and made 11 senior appearances across all competitions, including picking up some valuable experience in the Europa League.

 

But the teenager has had to bide his time with several substitute appearances and has his work cut out breaking into the starting XI on a regular basis.

Middleton should be looking to twist the arm of Rangers manager Steven Gerrard into handing him more minutes by starring on the international stage in the next two weeks.

He is a fleet-footed attacker that can be a nightmare for full-backs to defend against and is not far off becoming a regular at Ibrox based on the displays he turned in so far this season.

Gerrard has shown he isn’t afraid to put his faith in youth and Middleton needs to give him another nudge when he plays for Scotland’s Under-21s side.
