One of the more interesting transfer moves of the January window is that which has saw Rangers’ Glenn Middleton move to St Johnstone on loan.

The 21-year-old winger has joined the Premiership side on loan until the end of the season. Middleton has previously had spells on loan at Hibernian and Bradford City. Now he has a chance to impress at the Betfred Cup finalists.

St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson seems pleased to have the player at the club until the end of May. He feels that his pace and crossing ability could be a useful asset to have.

“Adds another option”

“Glenn is slightly different to what I have, he’s got good pace, he’s direct and has good delivery, so he adds another option” he said (The Herald).

“So it’s a good mix we have now. It’s a big move for him, he had a few other offers. So, I’m delighted he decided to come here” Davidson continued.

Wants to make the most of loan move

The Saints boss went on to reveal that the player’s desire to succeed at St Johnstone and make the most of the loan move was one of the main reasons he swooped for the player.

“It has just been difficult for him to break through and establish himself there right now. He’s hungry and that’s one of the things I was keen on, he wants to come here and really do well” Davidson concluded.

Middleton could make his St Johnstone debut tonight. The Saints take on Aberdeen in a vital league game at both ends of the Premiership table.
