Unnecessary signing: Rangers reported hunt for international midfielder makes no sense
Rangers are reported to be looking at bringing American midfielder Emerson Hyndman back to Ibrox on loan but the signing doesn’t really make any sense.
The Scottish Sun claimed that Hyndman has been given permission to leave Premier League Bournemouth on loan and Rangers were set to bring him back north of the border.
Gers boss Graeme Murty has overhauled his squad so far in the January window with four new faces at Ibrox with more likely to arrive before the transfer window closes in two weeks.
Hyndman picked up the club’s young player of the year award last season – admittedly in a pretty slim field of contenders – but with Sean Goss, Graham Dorrans and Ryan Jack all arriving at the club since the American international returned to Bournemouth, and the Gers chasing Hamilton midfielder Greg Docherty, there is much tougher competition for places at Ibrox.
There’s no doubting that Hyndman is a talented player who will likely go on and have a great career but the timing for a return to Glasgow is completely wrong and it would be an unnecessary signing in a rapidly-expanding squad.
There might be another opportunity for the 21-year-old to return to Rangers in the future but for now, the Gers don’t need him.
