Heartbreaking News for Rangers Fans? Emerson Hyndman Ready for Bournemouth Return

Emerson Hyndman has dampened the hopes of Rangers fans who were keen to sign him on a permanent basis, after the American admitted he feels ready to compete at Bournemouth next season.

Hyndman moved to Ibrox on a six-month loan deal back in January and has impressed since comfortably slotting into the club’s midfield.

And while the 21-year-old is expected to play a key role for Pedro Caixinha’s side against bitter rivals Celtic this weekend in the Scottish Cup semi-final, Hyndman still has his eye on a Premier League return.

There were of course reports that Celtic were keeping tabs on the Dallas-born playmaker, but it seems the player feels he is ready to compete for a spot in Eddie Howe’s starting XI next season.

He told Goal.com, “I was really excited to make this move to Rangers because it came at a good time.

“I needed games, and it’s such a big club as well. It was really exciting to have the opportunity to play in pressure situations in front of big crowds.”

However it doesn’t seem like the atmosphere the club can offer is enough for the promising youngster.

He added, “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.”

Will the former Fulham starlet be a big miss for Rangers if he does return down south next term?

And who would you fancy to take his spot, if Caixinha decides to delve into the transfer market for a long-term solution?
