Rangers coach raves about 22-year-old reportedly on verge of Ibrox deal
Rangers youth coach Kevin Thomson has revealed the advice he would give to Jason Cummings as he is reportedly on the verge of moving to Ibrox – and declared that the Nottingham Forest striker ‘knows how to score.’
Cummings arrived in Glasgow on Sunday night to undergo a medical ahead of a move to Ibrox, according to Sky Sports’ Jim White.

Thomson played with Cummings at Hibernian towards the end of his playing career and was recently appointed to the Gers’ Academy coaching staff alongside fellow ex-Ger Gregory Vignal.
The 33-year-old believes Cummings improved towards the end of his spell at Hibs and revealed the young striker had previously come to him for advice.
“Boy knows how to score goals!” Thomson said on his personal Twitter account.
“I think late on at Hibees he improved others parts of his game as well.
“Like I always said to him when he wanted advice the hard work never stops and will be the same advice I give him now!”

Cummings, 22, could join Jamie Murphy and Sean Goss as new faces at Ibrox in the January window, just six months after leaving Scottish football to sign for former Rangers boss Mark Warburton at Nottingham Forest.
After Warburton’s sacking at the City Ground, his replacement Aitor Karanka is prepared to let the 22-year-old return to Scotland and sign for the Ibrox giants.
Cummings scored 71 times in 149 appearances for Hibs before moving to Forest, where he has bagged four in seventeen games.
If Cummings does sign for the Gers he could make his debut in the Scottish Cup fourth round tie with Highland League minnows Fraserburgh at tiny Bellslea Park.
In other Rangers news, the Gers are expected to announce this done deal within hours after a medical is scheduled.
