Recent Hibernian signing Glenn Middleton has admitted that he is enjoying getting to play football on a regular basis for Hibs.
The player is a natural winger, but he has disclosed he is willing to play as a striker if it will allow him to attack the opposition.
The on-loan Rangers player has made three appearances for the Easter Road side so far and has two assists for the team, which is a good start to his time at the club.
“Getting more experienced at Hibs”
“I’m happy to play wherever I’m asked to for club and country. I’m getting more experienced at Hibs with every week that goes by” he said, as reported by the Daily Record.
“In the future, I don’t mind where I play. As long as I’m getting forward and I get the chance to hurt teams, score goals and make things happen – I’ll be happy.”
Recently played as a striker
Intriguingly, Middleton played as a striker in Scotland under-21s’ recent 2-0 win over San Marino. He has yet to play that position for Paul Heckingbottom’s side.
It will be interesting to see if Heckingbottom decides to play Middleton as a striker. The decision paid off for Scotland, as he scored the second goal against San Marino.
However, as he has started well on the wing for Hibs, it may be best to leave the player in his natural position. Hibs do now know though that they have an option of playing the player as a striker.
