Glasgow Rangers academy graduate Glenn Middleton put in an impressive performance for Scotland Under-21s, who drew 0-0 with their Lithuania U21 counterparts on Thursday.

The Rangers prodigy, currently on loan at Hibernian, was named Man of the Match for his display at Tynecastle (The Scotsman), the point keeping Scot Gemmill's side joint-top of their European Championship qualifying section, though on the whole the hosts did flatter to deceive.

Good moments of play from the Ibrox youngster included stinging goalkeeper Titas Krapikas' palms with a ferocious left-footed free kick, and providing opportunities for Lewis Hornby and Stephen Kelly, as reported by The Scotsman.

Middleton broke into the Rangers first team last season as he scored five goals in 27 appearances for the Light Blues but fell down the pecking order following the arrival of the likes of Jordan Jones, Sheyi Ojo and Jake Hastie.

At present he is on loan with Hibs, although he did spark speculation over his future in Edinburgh after his posts about the capital club disappeared from his page, but he has since re-posted the images to his Instagram account, according to The Scottish Sun.
