EMERSON HYNDMAN is pleased with his impact at Ibrox this term after another impressive performance on Pedro Caixinha’s Light Blues bow.

The American has caught the eye since making the move north of the border from Bournemouth and was on target in the 4-0 win over Hamilton on Saturday.

Hyndman has also netted against Motherwell, Hearts and St Johnstone this term and hopes Cherries boss Eddie Howe is pleased with his progression with the Gers.

He said: “Overall, he doesn’t want to bug me too much. But he gives me a call now and then to see how things are going.

“I know he has business to attend to but there is communication here and there and he has been tracking me, I hope.

“I’ve tried to do my best on the pitch and try to help the team get results from whichever position I’ve found myself in. I just try to help the team.

“I don’t keep a tally but the good thing is I’ve had a lot of chances. That’s all I can ask for.

“I like to set up my team-mates as well, so the more chance I create the better.”

Victory over Accies ensured Rangers remain within striking distance of Aberdeen in the Premiership standings heading into the top flight break.

Caixinha will have most of his squad to work with in the next fortnight as he looks to get his message across to the Light Blues ahead of the visit of Motherwell.

Hyndman will report for duty at Auchenhowie once again but the 20-year-old has his own international ambitions as he looks to realise his American dream.

He said: “They have qualifiers this week and there is Gold Cup in the summer. My goal is to be involved in that team and have an effect on the Gold Cup.

“Obviously it’s always good to be involved with the national team but this is a good time for me to stay here and get used to not only the manager, but the way he wants to work and even his staff members.”

If Hyndman is to realise his Stars and Stripes ambitions, he will have to play a key role for Rangers in his final few weeks at Ibrox.

Boss Caixinha has set his sights on Scottish Cup glory as well as overhauling Aberdeen in the Premiership and Hyndman believes the Gers can achieve both goals as they look to build on their first win under the guidance of the 46-year-old.

He said: “We are all optimistic. The results in the last few weeks have been good so we are definitely looking forward to the remaining games of the season and in the cup, obviously we all want to win it.”
