Failure to impose a substantial challenge for the Ladbrokes Premiership title to Celtic, helpless run of form and the exit of Mark Warburton had diluted the credentials of Rangers to a significant extent this season. However, the Gers are breathing afresh under the new reign of manager Pedro Caixinha, and the first impression has been a riveting one to say the least.
Rangers registered a thumping 4-0 win at the Ibrox Stadium on Saturday and one of the names to be carved on the score sheet was that of Emerson Hyndman. Signed on loan from Premier League outfit Bournemouth in the January transfer window, Hyndman has quickly adapted to life in the Scottish Premiership and has already bagged 4 goals in 8 league outings so far. But more importantly, should Caixinha now aim to sign him on a permanent basis in the summer?
The Teddy Bears are placed 3rd on the league table with 50 points from 29 games and are adrift of Brendan Rodgers’ outfit by a whopping 33-point gap. The Rangers faithful have had very little to cherish so far and without any shadow of a doubt, the new Portuguese gaffer of the club should start taking marauding steps to draw up their potential targets in the summer and Hyndman can really be one at the top of their wish-list.
The American midfielder has had a stellar impact at the Glasgow-based club ever since his loan move. Predominantly a right winger, Hyndman has the calibre of holding the ball up front, troubles the opponents’ full-backs with his shrewd movements on and off the ball, dictates the tempo of the game in the final third, puts out the right passes and does possess an excellent eye for the goal. Moreover, he has the requisite pace to run up and down the flanks, sculptures a strong support for the striker and is seen contributing to the defensive attributes of his employers more often than not.
Hyndman has the perfect blend of quality and hard work and has his never-say-die attitude is exactly what the Scottish giants really need at this stroke of hour. Frankly speaking, Eddie Howe’s outfit has bundles of talents in the attacking midfield zone, thus implying that for the right price, Caixinha can really get his man under his tactical nous.
So far, he has been consistently productive for the Light Blues and a permanent move to Glasgow should tempt the US international personally as well. A no brainer decision as far as we are concerned.
