At the moment Jason Cumming’s Rangers future is up in the air, as the player is set to return to Nottingham Forest now that his loan spell has ended with the Gers.
However, his days at Ibrox might not yet be numbered, as credible club insiders Four Lads Had A Dream have claimed that the Gers are ‘in talks’ with Forest and are ‘extremly hopeful’ that a deal will get done to take the player to Ibrox permanently.
If the 22-year-old does end up staying at Ibrox, he will have to up his game if he wants to be part of the impending Steven Gerrard revolution.
He might not have been given many starts by former Gers boss Graeme Murty, but he didn’t look the best when he did start, aside from one hat-trick against Championship side Falkirk.
He isn’t as good a striker as Alfredo Morelos, and if he wants to be a success under Gerrard’s management he will have to play better than he did when given the chance last season.
The nagging suspicion is that Cummings isn’t good enough to lead the line for a side that wants to win the title, that he is better as a squad player coming off the bench.
If that’s the case he can still be a valuable player for the Gers and you can understand why the club wants to keep him, but overall he must improve his game.
