Report: 14th placed side look to hijack Rangers swoop for 22-y/o despite claim of terms agreed

Rangers face competition from Championship side Ipswich Town for 22-year-old striker Jason Cummings, according to a report.

According to reliable Ipswich Town news site, the Blues, who sit 14th in England’s second tier, are looking at Cummings as a replacement for David McGoldrick who looks as though he is on the way out at Portman Road.

The 22-year-old striker joined Rangers on loan from Nottingham Forest in January and, as reported by the Daily Record, have an agreed terms over a purchase clause with Forest over a permanent switch in the summer.

Cummings could decide he wants to have another crack in England after struggling to make the grade at Nottingham Forest and failing to hold down a regular first-team place at Ibrox.

The former Hibs striker has scored six times in 14 games for the Light Blues and opened the scoring in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Hearts at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers need to do everything in their power to make Cummings stay at Ibrox beyond the summer. Letting him return to Forest will only prove to be a mistake and director of football Mark Allen must make sure he does whatever he needs to in convincing that his future lies in Glasgow. At 22, Cummings can still get much better and the chance to win trophies in front of 50,000 fans every other week should surely be more enticing than mid-table Championship football. When Cummings has been given a chance at Rangers, he has sometimes struggled in the 4-2-3-1 Graeme Murty prefers but still manages to pop up with goals.
