Glenn Middleton has opened up on life at Hibs and what he has learned since moving to Leith from Rangers.
The winger joined the Hibees in August on a season-long loan deal. After taking a couple of matches to settle in, Middleton has impressed in recent games for Paul Heckingbottom’s side.
Speaking to Hibs TV, the winger has said the experience so far has been beneficial for him and that he is slightly disappointed with a point against Celtic.
He said: “I have learnt a lot over the last couple of weeks that chasing back and winning the ball off your man is sometimes as important as scoring or creating a goal.
“Obviously we are happy with the point, but we definitely feel like we should have won the game.”
Middleton was brilliant against Celtic for Hibs
Against his Glasgow rivals, Middleton had arguably his best game in a Hibs shirt. He ran himself into the ground and was pretty bright going forward too.
Moritz Bauer had his hands full all afternoon and Middleton deserves credit for that. Not only did he hassle him in attack, but the 19-year-old pressed him defensively too.
Middleton is starting to really thrive in Leith. Coming off the bench in the Edinburgh derby match, he went on a solo run that almost brought Hibs back into the game. It’s those moments of brilliance the Rangers loanee can bring to the table.
Hibs’ SPFL rivals will be pleased with the progress Middleton is beginning to make. Now all he needs to do is add regular goals and assists to his game.
