Rangers winger Glenn Middleton looked set to join Doncaster Rovers on loan before a change in management at the Keepmoat Stadium appeared to kill the move dead – and there are a number of Scottish Premiership sides who should consider a swoop for the Scottish youth international.

The Daily Record had reported earlier in the summer that Middleton would join Doncaster on loan, however, manager Grant McCann has since joined Hull City, leaving Middleton stuck in limbo.

It’s clear that Steven Gerrard’s side wants the young winger to go out and play regularly and several Scottish Premiership sides would be a good fit for the pacy star.

The winger made 28 appearances for the Gers, scoring five times and chipping in with five assists, but saw his game time limited as the season wore on.

At only 19 Middleton has a big future ahead of him and could even find himself filling the gap left by one of the new signings at Ibrox this summer.

Kilmarnock and Motherwell could both potentially make use of Middleton after losing Jordan Jones and Jake Hastie to the Ibrox giants.

The winger would likely make a good fit at Craig Levein’s Hearts as his side takes shape ahead of the new season.

If, as looks likely, a move to Doncaster does fall through, then Scottish clubs should be immediately looking to take advantage.
