Rangers loan star Glenn Middleton bagged himself a double for Hibs' academy side this afternoon as they thrashed St Mirren 6-0 in the SPFL Reserve Cup.

The tricky Gers winger helped seal the capital club's path to the next round with a second-half brace.

A penalty kick was converted by the 19-year-old after he was felled inside the area.

He then drilled home his second later in the half.

Club captain Darren McGregor also scored on his return from long-term injury.

It was a fairly strong Hibs eleven with the likes of Adam Bogdan and Tommy Block also starting.

The young Buddies were swept aside but it was Middleton in particular who impressed.
