Rangers ace Jason Cummings has revealed that he loves the stick he receives from rival supporters as it let’s him know that he’s doing his job properly.
The 22-year-old, who recently signed on-loan at Ibrox from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season, scored his second goal for his new club with a fine acrobatic effort against Ayr United in the Scottish Cup, a goal which put the Light Blues 2-1 up in a game they eventually won 6-1.
The striker was subject to constant abuse and taunts from Ayr supporters throughout the game and he was delighted to have the final say on the matter.
“I get it every week,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I’ve always said that they give stick to the players that are causing them problems. You know what I mean?
“They wouldn’t give stick to someone that no one has heard of or who isn’t doing well.
“So I take it as a compliment. It urges me on to score against them. The joke’s on them at the end of the day.”
Cummings has already built-up a good partnership with Gers top scorer Alfredo Morelos, who scored twice in the victory at Somerset Park.
Cummings and the rest of his team-mates will be expecting to win the Scottish Cup, and they have a good chance of reaching the semi-finals after being drawn against Championship side Falkirk at home in the quarter-final.
Before that though, the Light Blues will continue their battle with Aberdeen for second place in the Scottish Premiership table, as they take on Hamilton on Sunday, they currently trail the Pittodrie side by three points.
