GLENN MIDDLETON wants to see Rangers carry the belief they had prior to beating Celtic into tomorrow’s match with Kilmarnock and beyond.
The young winger watched on from the bench as Gers overpowered their rivals in their last Scottish Premiership match over three weeks ago now, with league action set to resume at Rugby Park tomorrow night.
That too will be an extremely tough game give Killie sit just a point behind the Light Blues in the table in third place, although Rangers, having been out of action for that period due to the winter shutdown, got back playing again in Sunday’s friendly win over HJK Helsinki.
Middleton feels that was a massively beneficial game for the squad ahead of the trip down the M77, telling RangersTV: “It was really good to get minutes back in the legs to prepare for the game on Wednesday.
“Everyone is up for it and we know what is required. We know we want to go and get the three points and keep going what we started before the winter break.
“Everyone believed going into that game that we could do it, and I don’t know why it should be any different going into the second half of the season.
“We just need to keep taking it game by game and see where it takes us.”
Middleton has had some season to date, having forced his way into Steven Gerrard’s first-team plans back in the summer.
He’s made an impressive 24 appearances so far and netted five goals, and looking ahead to the second half of the campaign, he explained: “I want to just keep taking it game by game and session by session. I really need to try and keep my consistency high and improve on that as I know at times I have maybe dipped.
“I just want to keep on working hard personally and see what happens. I’ve been very grateful for what I have had and I just need to keep learning every day from the coaches and from the other senior pros in the squad.”
Glenn was speaking as he helped to present a cheque for £400,000 to the Rangers Academy to the Rangers Youth Development Fund. Read more about that HERE
