Rangers fringe player must start in clash v Celtic after grasping chance


Rangers striker Jason Cummings showed exactly why he must start up-front for the Gers in their upcoming match against Celtic, with a fine display in the 2-1 win over Hearts.

Cummings, making only his fourth league start for the Gers since signing on loan from Nottingham Forest in January, replaced the misfiring Alfredo Morelos and grasped his chance to shine, scoring the opening goal for the Light Blues which lead them to victory.

With Morelos being so badly out of form in recent weeks, it seemed inevitable that Cummings would get a chance in the side and it was no shock that Graeme Murty gave the 22-year-old fringe player the start he has been desperate.

Morelos has been very poor in all on his performances against Celtic this season, missing plenty of good chances, including two absolute sitters in the last two derbies.

Cummings has been limited to a cameo appearance as a sub in one match, and he deserves the chance to show what he can do in the biggest game in Scottish football.

At the moment you would have to say that it is fifty-fifty on the Gers deciding to make Cummings’ transfer a permanent one at the end of the season, he can put the odds far more in his favour with a good display in the Old Firm showdown.
