He’s only a young boy.
I get your point,i like him but i know a few that think he is not rangers class.He is 19 and chose top flight football over playing lower league or reserve teams in Holland. I think Hibs was the braver choice as it carried signifcantly more pressure - it's just turned into a bad loan due to Hibs being an absolute riot.
Not to mention he moved to us from Norwich when he could easily have went to another English club.
Can you link us to where Gerrard said he should have gone to Holland?I get your point,i like him but i know a few that think he is not rangers class.
I am only going as on what SG said that he should have went to holland.
Diferent type of football/ training/ lifestyle etc, so he would have learned far more there
There are a lot of similarities. Both had an initial positive impact when they were an unknown quantity however they are one trick ponies to an extent relying on pace and once you can nullify that threat there’s not a lot left. Middleton is still young and could develop but I doubt he will come close to making it with us.He’s not good enough. He reminds me of Gregg Wylde, maybe just a little better, but ultimately no where near good enough.
We signed Brandon Barker just a few months ago so i'll disagree. Loans can be extremely hit or miss and judging a player on one when loan players are regularly the ones shafted when a team is performing poorly is harshHe won't play any significant part for us going forward in my opinion. We've moved up a level.
Middleton or Ojo...A very underwhelming loan in all honesty.
I remember Gerrard disagreeing with his decision to join Hibs, he preferred that he went to the Netherlands on loan.
It looks like he should have listened to Gerrard.
He had the chance to go to NAC Breda who are challenging for promotion in the Netherland’s 2nd Division. But he’s stuck in the Hibs reserves.
Where does this leave Middleton at us?
I remember an interview, maybe he didnt come right out with it, but definately didnt look pleased and commented something.Can you link us to where Gerrard said he should have gone to Holland?
You won't be able to, because he didn't.
If that puts him off then he’ll never make it with us given our home crowd even when we’re winningYou don’t think Hibs’ travails, and the toxic atmosphere in the stands as they stumbled to defeat after defeat makes it infinitely tougher for a young, inexperienced loanee to succeed?
How many players have we loaned to a lesser SPFL club, where they have failed, only to return and rip it up for us?Mental.
How many league games had Ojo or aribo played aged 19?
Less Glenn Middleton that’s for sure.

No-one is willing him to fail. Merely stating the odds.
He won't, and I think it's OK to say that despite his age.He is still a good prospect whether the lynch mob think so or not.
Whether he makes it here remains to be seen but he may.
I work with a guy who is so negative. Beat Hearts 5-0 and all he spoke about was their keeper.FF home of the most negative supporters on the Internet, As soon as someone posts a thread about a player the usual suspects pile in moaning and groaning if the player isn't the 2nd coming of Maradona in their first few games
And then proceed to prove they are right by mentioning another player they moaned about
