Glenn Middleton: My tears at Norwich inspired me to make the grade at Rangers

By thedroid GLENN Middleton went home and cried his eyes out after being informed of his release by Norwich City after five years in their academy. So it is nice to think that, somewhere down in East Anglia this morning, amongst the number of his old pals who have passed on their congratulations, someone is quietly sobbing away about their failure to see the clear potential which the 18-year-old underlined with a remarkable European debut in Villarreal on Thursday night. The Ibrox side’s first continental group stage match for seven years was running away from Rangers when the teenager, fresh from scoring his first senior goal against Dundee last week, finished his warm up and entered the field just beyond the hour mark. Armed with a pep talk from his manager, with his first act he used that pace of his to sprint beyond Miguel Llambrich, the Villarreal full back earning a booking for the trouble. With the full back petrified to get tight to him, the next time he fed in Borna Barisic to provide the low cross which was steered in by Kyle Lafferty for Rangers’ second equaliser. The coup de grace in a European debut of Roy …read more

Relentless Gerrard eases into Rangers hot seat

By thedroid TO paraphrase Shania Twain, the Canadian country/pop artist who he spent last night dutifully watching at the SSE Hydro with his family, even Rangers‘ best European result for years against Villarreal on Thursday night didn’t impress Steven Gerrard much. Don’t get me wrong, he thought they were alright. But while he was wowed by the character his team showed – and certain moments of quality his team produced – to come from behind twice at El Madrigal, this thrilling 2-2 draw was very much being kept in context on the morning after the night before. It didn’t take the Englishman long to dig out the laptop on the three-hour flight back home from Spain in the wee small hours to pore over the footage of the match and see what areas his team can improve upon. “If you’re on a three-hour flight I know I wasn’t going to sleep so get it done, get it out of the way, and maybe I might be able to get a kip this afternoon,” he said. While it will never replace the thrill of getting out there and playing, this is a snapshot into the all-consuming life which Steven Gerrard has …read more
