Glenn Middleton has vowed to prove himself to new Hibs manager Jack Ross following his appointment as boss.

The Rangers loanee was brought to Leith by Paul Heckingbottom but has found chances limited so far this term. He’s only played six times, starting on four occasions since his move to Edinburgh from Ibrox.

“At times it has been frustrating at Hibs recently but hopefully I can kick on under the new manager,” Middleton told the Daily Record.

“Ultimately it’s down to me to prove I can do the things the coach asks of me.

“I don’t want to be sitting on the bench. I’m desperate to play, so hopefully I can get that chance soon.”

Middleton is eager to feature for Hibs under Ross

19-year-old Middleton certainly seems keen to impress his new manager. Under Heckingbottom he didn’t get many opportunities to shine and he’ll be hoping for better now Ross is at the Hibs helm.

In flashes though he has shown what he’s capable of. Middleton’s got plenty of pace to run at full-backs, with quick feet and technical dribbling ability also key components of his game.

Inconsistency though has hindered him slightly. In games like the Edinburgh derby, he has looked quick and explosive, in others he has drifted out of the game.

At his age though the Rangers loanee will be looking to build on these experiences and he’ll hope that opportunities are more frequent under Ross.
