Howe Waxes Lyrical About Rantie

Eddie Howe has praised his players after the 1-1 draw at Burnley, his former club, and reserved special praise for Tokelo Rantie after he scored.

Howe returned to Turf Moor for the first time since he left 12 months ago, and was happy with his Bournemouth team as they took a point home to the south coast.

The game also saw South African International Tokelo Rantie finally get off the mark, as he scored a 'wonder goal' to give Bournemouth the lead.

Howe was quoted on the Bournemouth website, “My emotions are of immense pride really in my team, I think they knew that it was a special day for me.

On Rantie's goal:

“It was worth waiting for – it was a great strike.

“I think he is going to be a special player for us, I really do.

“I know people have doubted that when the goals haven’t come but I thought he showed real flashes, we just need to get him in the game more and need to get more of the ball to him because he can turn games and he can win us games.

“The goal was special. I don’t know if he will score one like that every week! He will certainly need to get more tap ins but he’s very much a progressing player for us.

“I don’t think we will see the best of him until some period down the line but when we do I think he’s going to do great for us.”
