Emerson Hyndman is not expected to be a Rangers player next season after the on-loan Bournemouth man revealed that he is in regular contact with the manager of his parent club, Eddie Howe.

The American has caught the eye since joining the Glasgow outfit back in January and whilst fans would have been hoping to see him return in the summer, this now seems unlikely.

“Overall he [Howe] doesn’t want to bug me too much but he gives me a call now and then to see how things are,” Hyndman told The Scottish Sun.

“He has business to attend to but there is communication — and he has been tracking me, I hope.”

The implication of Howe’s correspondence with the player is that he wants him back working with the Bournemouth first team next term.

Having moved to England six years ago to join Fulham’s academy, Hyndman made nearly 30 appearances for the Cottagers between August 2014 and May 2016, before joining the Cherries last June.

He has since featured three times for the south coast club, with each of those coming in cup competitions.

A full international, Hyndman has been a revelation for Rangers, with his four goals and three assists in 11 outings constituting an excellent return.

He must now focus his energy on helping the Gers in their bid to overtake Aberdeen to finish second in the Scottish Premiership behind Old Firm rivals and runaway leaders Celtic.
