[IronPython] unexpected token print at <string>:1

Can someone explain why I get this error when calling:

tempobject = (object)global_eng.Evaluate("print \"hello\"");

>>>print "hello"
 unexpected token print at <string>:1

I've tried stepping thru:

public static object eval(ICallerContext context, string expression) {
            return eval(context, expression, globals(context));

and I just don't understand why it doesn't return "hello"
