Recent Hibernian arrival Glenn Middleton has disclosed the attributes he will bring to the Easter Road club. The loan signing from Rangers seems to be a player who likes to be on the attack.
“Making things happen”
“I like to be direct, make things happen whether that’s me scoring goals, making assists or making things happen for my team-mates” he said, as reported by the Evening News.
Hibs supporters should take note of Middleton’s comments. Should he be able to influence games the way he wants to, he could turn out to be a very decent signing for Hibs.
The Easter Road side need more directness in their line-up. When they play direct it can pay dividends. This was shown in the goal they scored recently against Rangers, which was set-up by Scott Allan’s through ball.
Ideal game to make debut in
The upcoming Betfred Cup match against Morton seems like the ideal game for Middleton to make his debut in. If he turns in a good performance, it could give him plenty of confidence for the fixtures to come.
Naturally Middleton wasn’t involved in Hibs’ 6-1 loss to Rangers. However, Paul Heckingbottom will want his team to quickly get over that defeat.
Therefore, he will probably pick a strong side for the Morton game. That should include Middleton. He could help the Easter Road side get back to winning ways.
