Rangers 22-year-old is heading for the exit door after weekend events


Nottingham Forest loanee Jason Cummings was left as an unused substitute on Saturday as the Light Blues romped to a 4-0 win at Ibrox on Saturday – a decision by Graeme Murty that could hint as to where the striker’s future lies.

The attacker only moved to Ibrox in the January transfer window in a bid to resurrect his career.

But despite initial signs that the forward could make it north of the border, his no-show against Dundee could mean he’s unlikely to remain at Rangers beyond the end of his loan spell.

Veteran Kenny Miller was included in the starting XI ahead of the 22-year-old which means the writing is on the wall for Cummings who is unlikely to extend his current deal in Glasgow unless he’s given a bigger role.

Five goals in a total of 13 appearances, including a hattrick against Falkirk, had made the forward quickly a favourite for the Gers supporters.

Now that the future of Alfredo Morelos at the club is secured after the Colombian put pen to paper on a new deal despite interest from China, it would seem that Cummings is now surplus to requirements and we would not expect to see the young Scot at the Light Blues next season.
