The Scottish Sun have broadcasted the words of the former Celtic striker Chris Hutton regarding the transfer of Glenn Middleton from Norwich City to Rangers this winter.
The highly-rated youngster has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Light Blues, stating that he “fulfilled a boyhood dream.”
The 18-year-old teenager can play on both wings equally well, although he prefers to play on the left side.
The Gers manager Graeme Murty has demanded from the club to bring the prosperous winger, as he already had an opportunity to work with him during his time at Carrow Road.
According to Hutton, Norwich fans are furious with the club’s decision to give up on Middleton without much resistance, as they believe in his potential.
He said, “A lot of the farming community back in Norfolk are upset that he’s gone. He’s a good player – a player Murty would’ve known from his brief time at Norwich. It’s upset a few. He’s a good young talent, a winger who’ll get to the byline.”
Murty has spent a short period at Norwich working as a youth team coach, and he is well aware of Middleton’s talent, which is the main reason he brought him to Ibrox.
