Jason Cummings tell brilliant story about what his dad did after he signed for Rangers
Rangers striker Jason Cummings revealed his dad is “ecstatic” that he will be a Rangers player after completing his loan move from Nottingham Forest.
The 22-year-old admitted his dad had had a “few beers” when he Tweeted his pride at his son’s move to the Ibrox giants.
Cummings could make his debut for the Gers on Wednesday night when they face Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership at Ibrox as the Light Blues look to overtake Derek McInnes’ side in second-place.
The on-loan striker also revealed he would sometimes attend Ibrox as a youngster to watch the Gers – despite being a Hearts fan.
“I think my old man had a few beers that night too – don’t drink and Tweet,” Cummings said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“He’s buzzing with all the new followers and likes he got with that. He’s ecstatic for me to play for Rangers. Most of family and friends are Rangers and Hearts fans, they’ve always been on that side.
“I went to a few Rangers matches when I was younger, although I was at Hearts games more often as I was a Hearts fan.”
Cummings is one of four new faces in the Rangers squad alongside Jamie Murphy, Sean Goss and Russell Martin as manager Graeme Murty rebuilds the squad he inherited from Pedro Caixinha.
The Scotland striker made 17 appearances for Nottingham Forest, scoring four times, before making his return to Scottish football after only six months in England.
Prior to joining Forest, Cummings scored 71 times in 149 appearances for Hibs and lifted the Scottish Cup in 2016 with the Easter Road side.
