'Clear sign that Morelos will be moving' - Rangers fans lose their minds after striker developments
Rangers fans on Twitter have lost their minds after a couple of major developments in their reported hunt to sign Nottingham Forest striker Jason Cummings – with one suggesting that it will lead to Alfredo Morelos leaving Ibrox.
The Sunday Post reported earlier this month that Rangers are looking to solve their shortage of prolific strikers by making a move for Cummings, 22, after he has been left on the fringes of the Forest squad since his £1million move from Hibernian in the summer.
On Saturday, the one-time Scotland international was completely left out of the Forest squad that lost 1-0 to Aston Villa in a sign that new City Ground manager Aitor Karanka does not fancy the ex-Hibs goal machine.
Also, bookmakers BetVictor have now installed the Light Blues as clear 3/1 favourites to sign Cummings before the end of the transfer window.
Those two huge developments over the weekend have sent the Ibrox faithful on Twitter into delirium over the possibility of signing the Nottingham Forest centre-forward.
One Rangers supporter believes that the links to Cummings means that star striker Morelos “will be moving” away from Ibrox.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Cummings not in the 18 for Forest….. Hope he's on his way to Rangers! https://t.co/U0XnI9ICnp

We need to hope Docherty tells Hamilton, Rangers are the only club he'll go to & I really hope Cummings arrives, we badly need a striker.

Would be excited to see Docherty and Cummings coming in. Not sure on Martin, I would have thought we’d need to move someone on first. Unless Alves is out mid/long term.

Rangers could complete triple swoop for Russell Martin, Docherty and Cummings according to the papers and rumours. I certainly hope so ????

Jason Cummings to rangers a done deal? Loan to buy? Cracking business if true ????

If we decide to get Cummings its a clear sign that MORELOS will be moving on Rangers better make sure we get HUGE bucks for this Guy minimum £35m ????????????????

Cummings was prolific for Hibernian last season, scoring a stunning 23 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions as the Edinburgh club won the Scottish Championship title.
However since moving to England, he has found it much harder with four goals in a total of 17 matches.
In other Rangers news, the Gers are on the verge of signing this defensive warrior, but it may see a senior player quit Ibrox.
