'Celebrate 55 early', 'Quality player' - Rangers fans react to reported hunt for PL midfielder
Rangers reportedly in the hunt to re-sign Bournemouth midfielder Emerson Hyndman with manager Graeme Murty looking to bring the American international to Ibrox for a second loan spell.
The Scottish Sun claim that the Gers are chasing the 21-year-old after being given permission to leave the Premier League side on a temporary deal.
Hyndman spent the second-half of last season on loan and was named the club’s young player of the year after having his loan spell cut short by injury.
Rangers fans were enthusiastic about seeing the American international returning to Ibrox – with one fan calling him a “quality player.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
If Hyndman comes back am all for it, quality player who gives us more options

If we get Hyndman back, I hope it means we won’t go after Jones and Miller and Niko will be done. Still hope we can get Docherty done though.

If hyndman deal has an option to buy I'd be delighted to have him back, otherwise I don't really see the point. Unless obviously we are getting rid of people like krancjar

This morning I woke up fine, I had Emerson Hyndman on my mind.

Krankcar is finished. Holt and halliday are useful squad players but not really good enough. I would welcome Hyndman com ing back.

If Hyndman comes back along with Docherty, the already signed Cummings and Murphy I might just celebrate 55 early

Hope Hyndman comes home ????

The Premier League midfielder scored four times and contributed four assists in 17 appearances for the Ibrox giants last season but has been unable to force his way into the Bournemouth side.
Hyndman was a late substitute in the Cherries’ 3-0 Third Round FA Cup replay humiliation at Wigan on Wednesday night as he made his third appearance of the season for Eddie Howe’s side.
Rangers have already signed Jamie Murphy, Sean Goss,, Jason Cummings and Russell Martin on loan so far this month as manager Graeme Murty rebuilds the side he inherited from Pedro Caixinha in October.
