Rangers must pass on signing loan player permanently after stinker v Kilmarnock


Rangers striker Jason Cummings is hugely popular with the support and many were hopeful that the Ibrox giants would make his loan switch from Nottingham Forest into a permanent deal in the summer – but the Scotland international’s performances in Glasgow means the Light Blues should pass on signing him at the end of the season.

As part of Cummings’ loan move, the Gers confirmed they have an agreement to sign the striker at the end of the season but with Steven Gerrard drastically changing things at Ibrox it is a move the Gers should avoid.

Cummings has hit the net six times in 16 appearances since his January move but his recent performances in particular have been really disappointing – culminating in the 22-year-old being hooked at half-time of the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock after playing a stinker.

The former Hibs striker might be working wonders at training but it isn’t happening for him in games and, right now, the Gers can’t afford to have two misfiring strikers.

Alfredo Morelos’ form is already enough to have the Gers management worried but having Cummings putting in similar – or worse – display doesn’t help his case when it comes to looking at if a permanent deal should happen.

With two games left in the season, Cummings could still come out and blow everyone away and fire the Gers to second in the Scottish Premiership but it would almost certainly be too little, too late for the former Hibs striker.
