'Bit of a fool' - Rangers star laughs off failure v Ayr United (not Morelos)
Rangers striker Jason Cummings has said his celebration didn’t go quite to plan after he “launched” a toilet roll that had ended up pitchside during the 6-1 win over Ayr United.
Cummings threw the paper expecting it to roll out but instead it just went flying into the fans behind the goal.
The on-loan Nottingham Forest striker scored the Gers’ second in the Scottish Cup win to kick-off a six-minute goal spree with the Gers going from drawing 1-1 to 4-1 up.
Cummings didn’t seem to mind too much that it didn’t spin out as he joked he would “take it.”
“The celebration was a bit of a fool; I just saw a wee toilet roll and launched it! It didn’t spin out though it just got launched but I’ll take it,” the striker said, as quoted by Rangers TV on their official website.

Cummings was not the only Rangers star to fail in his efforts on Sunday, with Alfredo Morelos managing to squander a goal scoring chance from a yard out after the ball had bobbled up to him.
The Columbian eventually netted twice, while Cummings scored a fantastic hooked volley in the 66th minute to put the Gers in front for the first time as Graeme Murty’s booked their place in the quarter-finals.
The Gers will face Championship side Falkirk in the next round as they look to lift their first major trophy in seven years.
With only three games between the Gers and a Scottish Cup win, Murty’s side will have their sights set on lifting the famous old trophy for the first time since Nacho Novo’s goal secured a win over Falkirk in the 2009 final.
