Rangers have started their 2019/20 campaign in style winning both of their opening games in the Scottish Premiership.
Steven Gerrard’s team are also 4-2 up on Midtjylland in the Europa League and a draw in tomorrow’s second leg will see them progress.
Sunday saw the Gers thump Hibernian 6-1 in a game which offered supporters massive optimism of a good season at Ibrox.
After thrashing Paul Heckingbottom’s team, Gerrard has today bolstered their squad by allowing young attacker Glenn Middleton to join Hibs on a season-long loan.
The 19-year-old scored five goals and registered five assists last season but wasn’t a regular in the starting eleven.
What Middleton really needs at this stage in his development is to play regular first-team football. Hibs should allow him the chance to do that and it could be a good move for him.
Following the news of his departure, Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to wish their midfielder well in his temporary move.
The supporters largely agree that this move is the most beneficial for all parties but hope he can come back and make an impact next season.
Here is a selection of tweets following news of Middleton’s departure to join Premiership rivals Hibernian:
good on him, helping the wee teams in scotland

It’s a good move for Glen not sure why we would entertain that mob though should have went to NAC Breda pretty sure Hibs fans will give him pelters if he does anything wrong
