Steven Gerrard made a number of signings when he took over in the summer, however, one of Rangers’ youngsters has been winning the plaudits.
The Light Blues have given Glenn Middleton the chance to play in the first-team recently and the 18-year-old has played a starring role for the club already.
The teenager has already netted three goals during his time with the senior goal and revealed to the Glasgow Evening Times that he feels his transition has been guided by playing against top European competition for the developmental side.
“I think everything adds up when you are travelling to games, like going away to Spain to play Valencia,” he told the Evening Times.
“It settles you, so you know what to expect when you are then going away with the first team. You know how to prepare yourself, you are used to being on the flights and in the hotels so it is not a shock to the system. Once you have experienced something before, you know how to deal with it next time.
“I found that transition [into the first team] pretty easy and the boys have been great with me.”
Middleton has been outstanding for Rangers in the games he has played for the senior side this season already.
The teenager has certainly looked comfortable for Gerrard’s side when being involved and has not appeared to have been fazed by the pressure that comes with making the move to the first team.
The Light Blues will be hopeful that other players will also be able to replicate Middleton’s transition as well as he has and will be excited about his promising future at Ibrox.
