Emerson Hyndman delivers Twitter message after Rangers win against St Johnstone
By Danny Wright
Emerson Hyndman has taken to Twitter to express his delight at scoring his first Rangers goal at Ibrox.
The 20-year-old netted a stoppage time winner for Graeme Murty’s side in a 3-2 victory over St. Johnstone on Wednesday night.
The Gers were 2-0 up but after the visitors pulled one back and, after Rob Kiernan was sent off, Tommy Wright’s side were soon level at 2-2.
Bournemouth loanee Hyndman capped an incredible performance with his late strike, which was his third goal for the club since joining on a temporary basis in January.
Hyndman also expressed his thanks for the Ibrox support in his Twitter messager and he will now be hopeful that his side can continue to apply pressure on second-placed Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership table.
