A Gers supporters account has shared a screengrab of an exchange they claim to have had with Bournemouth’s official account yesterday.
The conversation starts with the Rangers fan asking how many retweets they’ll need to get for Hyndman to stay at the club for another season once his loan ends this summer.
The supporter probably didn’t expect a response from the Cherries social team – but one came, with Bournemouth saying that 5,000 retweets and a pre-season friendly would do the job.
And now the account has one week to meet the terms:

Of course, this could be a very impressive Photoshop – but we’re willing to believe that Bournemouth really have got involved in this funny social story.
We doubt Eddie Howe or the Bournemouth board will let Twitter retweets impact their decision on Hyndman’s future.

But a return to Rangers might not be such a bad idea considering how well he’s played for the club since moving north in January.
Hyndman has scored four goals in 16 games for the club and was rewarded with their Young Player of the Year award on Sunday.
Let’s hope Rangers fans can rally to get the necessary support to keep him at Ibrox next term.
