'I thought I'd died' - Cummings delivers brilliant verdict on first Rangers goal
Rangers striker Jason Cummings has joked he thought he had died after scoring his first goal for Rangers in the 2-1 win over Ross County on Sunday.
Cummings ended up at the bottom of a pile of bodies – both fans and players – after he gave the Gers a 2-0 lead over Owen Coyle’s side in his second appearance since completing a season-long loan move from Nottingham Forest.
The popular Gers star also poked fun at Scottish wrestling star Grado, insisting the hilarious grappler crushed him more than being beneath a group of fans – after the pair famously “wrestled” in the build-up to the 2016 Scottish Cup final.
“I thought I’d died! Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to get up and I was praying for the coppers to come and get them off me!” Cummings said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It was good for the first 10 seconds then I couldn’t breathe but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I was crushed more with Grado, he’s a bit bigger.
“I can’t remember how many were on top of me, I just remember a big pair of denim jeans in my face.”
Cummings has replaced Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos in both of his two appearances for the Gers but could find himself partnered with the 21-year-old when the Light Blues take on Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on Wednesday night.
The former Hibs striker joined Forest in the summer from Hibs but struggled to hold down a regular first-team place under Mark Warburton at the City ground before the former Gers boss was sacked on December 31st.
Cummings recently won his first cap for Scotland when he was involved in the friendly against the Netherlands at Pittodrie in November.
