Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed why he thinks new signing Jason Cummings will be a success at Ibrox and claimed the striker isn’t going to be “fearful” of the pressure of playing for the Gers.
Cummings joined the Ibrox giants on a season-long loan from Nottingham Forest in January as Murty revamps the squad he inherited from Pedro Caixinha in October.
The 22-year-old striker is the Gers fourth signing of the transfer window after Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy both joined on loan while Declan John completed a permanents switch from Cardiff City.
Murty believes the former Hibs striker is the kind of personality the Gers “need” and insists he wants players who are “relentless.”
“Everything I hear about him and everything I see about him shows and indicates a person who isn’t going to be fearful walking out at Ibrox or missing a chance,” Murty said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“We need that kind of personality that is going to go again and again and again and be relentless because we want our players and our teams to be relentless.
“We want that to be part of our nature as both a team and as a club.”
Cummings scored four times in 17 total appearances for Nottingham Forest after signing for the Championship side last summer.
After former Gers boss Mark Warburton was sacked at the City Ground, Cummings’ time at the City Ground looked to be coming to an end and the Ibrox giants moved to get their man.
During his time at Hibs, Cummings scored 71 times in 149 appearances and was part of the side who lifted the Scottish Cup for the first time in over a century.
Cummings made his Scotland debut in November against the Netherlands at Pittodrie.
