GLENN Middleton has vowed to get back to basics when he gets his next outing for Rangers.

The youngster believes he has forgotten his natural game in recent weeks and wants to keep it simple if he gets the nod against St Johnstone tomorrow.

After signing as an academy player just a year ago Middleton made a huge impact on Steven Gerrard in the summer and became a first-team player under the new Gers boss.

Since then he has go on to make 26 appearances and bag five goals, including his first European goal in the Europa League group stages against Spartak Moscow.

Speaking to the media the 19-year-old said: “I think at the start I was just taking the game to opposition players and that is what I will always try to do.

“I think the last couple of games I have maybe tried to over complicate things and I didn’t really just go for it like I normally should be doing. Hopefully I can get back to that.

“That is what I am on the pitch to do, to run at people and make things happen for the team. I must try and get back to my best at doing that.”

Middleton is targeting a positive result against the Saints tomorrow and is aware of how important the role of the squad will be for Rangers title challenge this season.

Matt Polster and Glen Kamara could come into contention for this weekend’s Premiership match and the winger has been impressed by the new recruits after playing alongside them for the reserve team in recent weeks.

He continued:

“We are all in this together, at the end of the day we all want to achieve the same thing at the end of the season so we are all helping each other in every game. Whatever we are asked to do for each other we will do.

“They (Kamara & Polster) have done very well, I think even in training it is clear for everyone to see the qualities that they have so they are only going to add to the squad.

“Glen Kamara is a holding midfielder who is going to win the ball back for you but at the same time he can create stuff himself. Matt Polster is the same; he can drive forward from full-back and make things happen.”
