Rangers midfielder bids farewell to fans on social media (not Gilmour)

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers midfielder Emerson Hyndman has bid farewell to the club’s fan base on Twitter after it was announced that he would be returning to Bournemouth after suffering an injury.

The 21-year-old central midfielder made the switch to Glasgow in January on a temporary deal from Premier League side Bournemouth.

He became a frequent part of the Gers’ first team and was named the Young Player of the Year for the Ibrox giants in April.

But, his stay with Pedro Caixinha’s team has been cut short due to injury and on Tuesday the American thanked fans, staff and teammates for making his “short stay” a “memorable one” via his personal Twitter account.

Hyndman’s farewell comes on the same day as young midfielder Billy Gilmour leaving and the news will certainly come as a blow to the Rangers team with the Cherries becoming an important part of the team.

However, the Gers have all but secured third place with three games of the season left and they will be grateful that the loss of Hyndman has come at this time of the campaign.

The young midfielder will meanwhile be expected to return to Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth team where he will be keen to add to his three appearances.
