Rangers winger Glenn Middleton is being chased by Coventry City. According to The Sun, Coventry want to take advantage of Doncaster Rovers’ hesitance to sign Middleton on loan from Rangers.
Doncaster had been poised to sign Middleton on a season-long loan. But they have since changed their manager from Grant McCann (who has joined Hull City) to Darren Moore.
After changing manager, Middleton’s future was thrown into doubt. Hull have now been linked with the 19-year-old as McCann is clearly a big fan. But Coventry are hoping to win this race.
Mark Robins’ men are considering a swoop for Middleton on a loan deal to bolster their options out wide. The Sky Blues have lost loan stars Bright Enobakhare and Luke Thomas, although two players have been brought in from abroad.
Robins might look for one more attacking midfield addition, especially if he cannot bring Enobakhare back from Wolves. Middleton might be his man.
Greg Middleton could copy Greg Docherty’s success
Middleton is a very promising prospect but he needs game time to progress. He should look at Greg Docherty’s success at Shrewsbury Town last season and try to replicate that in the English third tier.
The Scotland U21 international has already played 28 first-team games, scoring five and providing five assists, despite still being a teenager. He could light up League One next season and return to Rangers a much better player.
