'Scotland is watching' - Kris Commons makes bold claim about Rangers new signing
Former Celtic attacker Kris Commons has boldly claimed that the entirety of Scotland will be watching Jason Cummings after he completed his loan move to Rangers.
Cummings joined the Ibrox giants on a season-long loan from Nottingham Forest after struggling to win a regular first-team place at the City Ground.
The former Hibs striker made 17 appearances for Forest but was surplus to requirements after the ex-Rangers boss was sacked and replaced with Aitor Karanka.
The 22-year-old has a reputation for his off-field antics just as much as his playing ability but Commons thinks being able to show he is a top player at a big club will motivate the Scotland international.
“Certainly a city was watching but now Scotland is watching Jason Cummings. Jason has had a past where he has had to grow up, he has done a few things on and off the field that is a little bit immature, but he is a player that has so much ability that if he does put his mind set right he can go on to the next level,” Commons said, as quoted by the Belfast Telegraph.
“I think that will be a big motivation, not only for Jason but for Rangers as well, that he can take them to the next level.”
Cummings is one of four new faces at Ibrox in the January transfer window joining Sean Goss, Jamie Murphy and Russell Martin in agreeing to short-term moves.
The Gers have agreements in place to make both Cummings’ and Murphy’s moves permanent in the summer and the 22-year-old would be a popular long-term signing with Gers fans.
Cummings could make his first appearance in a Rangers shirt on Sunday when the Gers travel north to face Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup at tiny Bellslea Park.
