Jamie Murphy suffered an apparent serious injury during Rangers’ clash with Kilmarnock on Sunday and fans want to see Glenn Middleton get a first-team chance in his place.
It was a real blow to see the Ibrox winger be carried off during the Scottish League Cup encounter, with his knee seemingly buckling.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard revealed after the match that they are fearing the worst with regards to the injury and that he could be out for a lengthy period.
As gutting as that is for the player, Gerrard must now consider who is best placed to come in a replace his presence in the Gers first-team and many fans are looking at one talent – Glenn Middleton.
The teenager has been used sparingly by the manager so far this season but has looked exciting every time he’s played and plenty now feel it’s the perfect chance for him to come into the team and impress.
These supporters took to Twitter today to share their thoughts on it all…
Injury to Jamie Murphy today Wil hopefully give young Middleton a chance to show his class

If Murphy is out I’d expect Middleton to get a shot

Give Middleton a shout..

Maybe try young Middleton in place of Kent soon? Would imagine he's well-versed in playing on shitty surfaces with the 20s and maybe get a bit more joy from that type of player?

I prefer Middleton and if he gets his chance he will destroy opponents

I wouldn’t look to Jordan Jones when we have Middleton on the bench and ready to impress.
We are more in need of another striker and a centre back
