Jim Goodwin has slammed the breaks on Glenn Middleton talk, confirming the Rangers winger won’t be moving to St Mirren.

Speculation over the Rangers starlet’s future has intensified since his recall from Hibs. The likes of Ross County and the Buddies have been linked with loan moves for the 20-year-old.

Paisley won’t be a place where Middleton ply’s his trade in the second half of this season. Goodwin has said that whilst there was summer interest from the Buddies, there isn’t any in this window.

Confirming the news prior to St Mirren’s Scottish Cup clash with Broxburn Athletic, Goodwin said: “I don’t know where the story comes from. We did make an enquiry for Glenn in the summer but unfortunately, he chose to go to Hibs and that was that.

“We have moved on since then. He’s a terrific player. a really good talent who has great attributes. I’m sure there will be a number of clubs willing to take him.

“Unfortunately we’re not in a position to do anything this window. I’m covered in that area now which is the reason for that.

“We are talking to one or two others at the moment, hoping to get them over the line. I don’t want it dragging on until the window closes.

“We are not desperate to get anybody else in but the one or two we are speaking to are very good and would make us better in the second half of the season.
