Rangers fans have welcomed young midfielder Emerson Hyndman to the club on Twitter after he completed a loan move on Monday afternoon.
The Scottish giants announced on their official Twitter account that the 20-year-old had joined Mark Warburton’s side on a six-month loan deal from Premier League outfit Bournemouth.

He has become the club’s first signing of the winter window and has helped plug up a hole left in the centre of the park after Joey Barton’s departure and Niko Kranjcar’s injury.
Fans are now eagerly awaiting what the young midfielder has to offer to their side, with many excited about the young prospect.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Not expecting miracles from Hyndman. Having seen a few clips, if he's fit, hopefully he brings a bit of composure to the midfield.

Emerson Hyndman looks a good player by all accounts, Toral joining up soon enough. Reckon we'll get any more in ?

Rossiter (if fit) Hyndman, Toral for the 2nd half of the season. IMO we are addressing our biggest problem.

Hyndman made the switch to the Dorset-based club in the summer from Championship side Fulham.
He has played three times for the Cherries this campaign with all appearances coming in the cup competitions and he played 56 minutes of Saturday’s 3-0 defeat against Millwall.
He has previously earned other first team experience with Fulham, where he featured 28 times and he has even been capped once by the US national team.
Hyndman now faces a 12-day wait for his competitive Rangers debut with Motherwell coming up next in the Scottish Cup fourth round.
In other Rangers news, Niko Kranjcar has revealed that he considered quitting the club.
