In Focus: Rangers must explore all avenues to hold on to Hyndman

As reported by The Scottish Sun, former Rangers manager Mark Warburton is eyeing up a summer move for one of their key players over the last few months.

What’s the story?

Emerson Hyndman has rapidly made himself a fans’ favourite at Ibrox, despite only joining the Gers in January. His performances have left fans hopeful they may be able to attract him north for a second season or even permanently in the summer.

However, ex-boss Mark Warburton has other plans, according to The Sun. They say that the Nottingham Forest manager is looking to bring him to the City Ground next season.

It comes after the American midfielder was linked with a move to Celtic this past weekend.

Can the Gers hold on to him?

How important is he?

With four goals in twelve appearances so far for the Ibrox outfit, Hyndman has rapidly become one of the most impressive midfielders at the club.

Any decision on his future will likely be made after he returns to Bournemouth for pre-season training and with his contract not expiring until 2020, it could be difficult for the likes of Rangers to sign him on a permanent basis.

However, the 20 year old is already of a level to be an effective force in Scottish football and retaining his services for another season, even on loan, could be massive for Rangers.
