Emerson Hyndman has played his final game for Rangers and is set to return to Bournemouth before the season ends, according to a report.
The Daily Record claims that the midfielder will switch back to the Premier League club within the next 24 hours and will take no further part in Rangers’ final three games of the season.
He was left out of the squad that secured a 2-1 win over Partick on Sunday due to a foot injury and he will undergo treatment back at his parent club.
It is understood that Hyndman has already said his goodbyes to his Gers teammates at Auchenhowie on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old was signed by Mark Warburton on a temporary deal in January and has made a total of 17 appearances for the Ibrox club, scoring four goals and supplying four assists.
In Hyndman’s first two starts for the Light Blues he managed to get on the score sheet on both occasions against Motherwell and Hearts.
He was the saviour of caretaker manager Graeme Murty when he bagged a super late winner against St. Johnstone in March despite his side being down to ten men.
Football Insider Verdict
It’s a great shame that Hyndman will not be able to say his final goodbye to the Rangers fans but his spell at Ibrox has been a hugely successful one and he’s proven that he can become a great player in the future. Bournemouth have taken the right decision to treat his injury themselves as he is after all their player and they need to safeguard his career. The one-time USA international has undoubtedly been one of the best players to put on a Rangers shirt this season and without him they might have been facing a scrap for fourth place.
In other Rangers news, the club must make this Barcelona outcast their number one summer priority.
