Rangers must make Jan swoop for international PL midfielder after huge injury blow

COMMENT

Rangers are facing up to life without Graham Dorrans for three months after the 30-year-old underwent surgery on an ankle injury which has kept him out of action since October.

With one of their most influential players facing an extended spell on the sidelines, the Ibrox giants should launch a January bid to bring Bournemouth midfielder Emerson Hyndman back to Glasgow on a temporary basis.

Hyndman completed a January loan move to Rangers in 2016 and made 17 appearances, scoring four times and contributing a further four assists, before injury cut short his spell at in Scotland.

Despite only arriving at Ibrox last January, Hyndman was named the club’s Young Player of the Year.

The United States international has only made one appearance for the Cherries after returning south to the Premier League and would be an ideal addition to Graeme Murty’s side for the second-half of the season.

With regular first-team football almost guaranteed in Scotland – and the player’s past experience of playing for the Ibrox giants – a short-term transfer would suit all parties.

Carlos Pena’s erratic form, long-term injury to Jordan Rossiter and the inexperience of Jamie Barjonas and Ross McCrorie leaves Jason Holt and Ryan Jack as the Gers’ only fit, senior central midfielders and a move for Hyndman would Hyndman would be well-received by the Rangers support.
