In Focus: Hyndman’s ambition is good for player but bad for Rangers

As reported by, Rangers midfielder Emerson Hyndman is hoping to make an impact at Bournemouth next season when his loan deal at Ibrox expires in the summer.

What’s the story?

Hyndman has been a standout for the Gers since moving from the English Premier League this January, making 15 starts and scoring 4 goals in all competitions.

However, his association with the Ibrox club could be coming to an end with no prospect of a return, on loan or otherwise, when his deal is up at the end of the season.

Speaking to, Hyndman said:

That was the goal when I came here, to get playing time and find my form and earn experience to help me in England. I know Bournemouth has been keeping tabs on me and I feel good about competing for (playing time) next season.

That’s sure to be a blow for Rangers fans who perhaps thought they may be able to convince the young midfielder to commit to a full season North of the border.

How good can he be?

Hyndman is certainly a talented and ambitious midfielder. The move to Rangers was a bold one, the player clearly seeking out first team opportunities in an effort to work hard and improve as a player.

The former Fulham man is thought to have a bright future in the game having already won full international caps for the United States national team despite being just 21 years of age.

What he doesn’t have is Premier League appearances and perhaps that’s when we’ll truly learn how big his potential is. Returning to Bournemouth with renewed confidence should serve him well and if he can convince Eddie Howe to give him a chance on the big stage, we wouldn’t bet against him taking that opportunity with both hands.

For Rangers, well, they’ll have to look elsewhere for a midfield spark this summer. In a summer of rebuilding, it would have been nice to have hung on to at least one of their better performers this term but they’ll have to settle on other targets.
