Emerson Hyndman hasn’t even played 90 minutes for Sevco and he’s bought into the entitlement culture that has the new club well on the road to administration.

Two weeks ago the soccer geek was in the Bournemouth side booted out of the FA Cup by Millwall- after 56 minutes Eddie Howe had seen enough and hooked the out of touch midfielder.

With Scottish Cup exits to Hibs, Raith Rovers and twice to Dundee United in their not so glorious history no one at Ibrox should harbour ambitions beyond beating Motherwell tomorrow to reach the last 16 of the competition.

If SFA licence considerations were put to one side the Scottish Cup could offer a route to the Europa League qualifiers but a more realistic route would be finishing second or third in the SPFL.

Hyndman is expected to make his Sevco debut against Motherwell but for reasons best known to himself he is already discussing the tribute act playing in Europe once he returns to the sidelines of the Bournemouth squad.

I completely agree with the expectation levels here,” the Daily Record reports the midfielder saying. “I think the fans are totally right with what they want.

“It is a club which I always remember was playing in Europe growing up as a kid, it is a massive club and I think everybody wants Rangers back where they belong.

“There is always a pressure to it but at the same time you want to be able to cope with that pressure and channel it into doing what is best for your team on the day.”

As was revealed at the Court of Session on Thursday every match that the old club won from 1989 was assisted by tax avoidance schemes deployed by Dave Murray.

With HMRC now keeping a close eye on events at Ibrox the prospect of Hampden cup wins are remote with St Johnstone or Inverness Caley Thistle a better bet for a run in the Europa League.
