Rangers talent Glenn Middleton says St Johnstone made him feel ‘welcome’ earlier this year as he swaps Ibrox for McDiarmid Park again.

The Scotland youth international already has legendary status in Perth after helping the club to a historic League Cup and Scottish Cup double last season, following a loan from Rangers. He leaves Ibrox again for Perth, this time for the duration of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season. Saints face Motherwell this afternoon.

Callum Davidson’s side go into the game off the back of an impressive 1-1 draw with Galatasaray in the first leg of their Europa League third round qualifier. Middleton said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time here last season and to be back to help us go again is very exciting. The lads in the squad all made me feel welcome when I joined last January.

“They took me right into the group to make me feel a part of it from day one. There is a great team spirit and I could see that again from the 1-1 draw against Galatasaray last night in the Europa League qualifier. The lads were absolutely brilliant.

“I’m looking forward to getting started and working again with the gaffer, Callum Davidson, and his staff. I’d like to thank everyone involved at both Rangers and St Johnstone for working hard behind the scenes to make this move happen.”
