Rangers striker Jason Cummings insists the Ibrox side need to consistently perform like they did in the second-half of the 6-1 demolition of Ayr United in the Scottish Cup on Sunday.

The Ibrox side scored five times without reply in a rampant second-half at Somerset Park after falling behind to an early goal from Alan Forrest.

Cummings hit the Gers’ second of the afternoon after Alfredo Morelos drew the Gers level before the break as the floodgates opened for Graeme Murty’s side.

The Rangers striker gave credit to Ayr but believes the Gers were “different class” in the second 45 and insists that’s the type of performance they should be aiming for regularly.

“Credit to Ayr, they were decent. They made it hard for us especially in the first half,” Cummings said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“It just shows how good we were in the second half. They gave us a game but we showed our class in the end. The second half is what we are aiming to be more like. In the first half we weren’t at our best.

“But I thought, particularly in the second half, we got the job done. In the first half we weren’t at our best. They did well and got their goal.

“Thankfully we got one back. But I thought in the second half we were different class. That’s the Rangers we are and are aiming to be more like.”

Colombian striker Morelos grabbed a second after the break as Josh Windass’ brace and Jamie Murphy’s strike booked the Gers’ place in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.

Murty’s side will welcome Championship Falkirk to Ibrox next month as they look to end an eight-year barren spell without a major trophy stretching back to Walter Smith’s side winning the Scottish Premiership in 2011.

The Gers have to go even further back for the last time they lifted the Scottish Cup with a 2009 win over Falkirk the last time the Ibrox giants got their hands on the trophy.
