Rangers sanctioned a loan move in January – and Glenn Middleton says he would ‘seriously look at’ returning to St Johnstone next season too.

The Scotland youth international arrived in Perth from Rangers in the winter transfer window and scored the vital goal that secured St Johnstone’s top six status in the Scottish Premiership. He has appeared seven times for the League Cup holders.

Middleton started for the first time in the league since a loan move from Rangers to Hibs in the 2019/20 season on Saturday, Saints losing 1-0 to Aberdeen. The winger says he has enjoyed Perth life.

But while not looking too far ahead, he would love to look at returning to the city from Rangers next season (St Johnstone FC): “I can’t look too far ahead. For me just now, it’s about trying to play in every game for St Johnstone and making a positive impact.

“I am under contract at Rangers and that means they are in control of the situation moving forward. I’ve no idea what the summer holds for me in terms of going into next season. But if there is an opportunity to come back to Saints then I’d seriously look at it because I have really enjoyed my time here.

“It’s a great football club and the people in every department are top class. There is a great deal of belief in this squad. We are desperate to win every game. The squad made me feel welcome from the first moment I walked into the dressing-room.”
