EMERSON HYNDMAN believes Rangers’ attacking outlook will suit him during his loan period from Bournemouth.

The American midfielder struck the killer second goal in the Ibrox side’s 2-0 win over Motherwell at Fir Park yesterday

Mark Warburton’s side overcame the setback of going down to 10 men in the fourth minute when Michael O’Halloran was dismissed for a crude challenge on Callum McHugh.

Rangers responded – especially after the home team had Scott McDonald red-carded in the 25th minute.

Hyndman said: “I think we rebounded pretty well. It was a tough start having a man sent off after only four minutes.

“I think everyone panics just a bit going a man down because it was so early on. Away from home, it’s very hard to take that and be positive with it because it was a tough thing to cope with.

“Once we realised that we could keep possession quite well, especially in their half, and frustrate them a bit and create chances that way, then everyone calmed down. We took control.

There’s an attacking mindset and, as a midfielder who likes to get into the box, it’s an easy transition for me.

“Getting goals is something I hope to do with the possession we have most games.”

Hyndman also applauded veteran striker Kenny Miller who got the breakthrough goal, his third in a week against woeful Well.

He said: “Kenny is a terrific player, isn’t he?

“Having someone like that with his experience gives the players behind him the confidence that if you give him the ball he’s going to give it right back or make the right runs.

“For me, at 20, he’s a big help. Just watching him. If things are going against us, he settles us down.”
