Rangers

COMMENT

In the flurry of January signings made by Rangers, one which had supporters particularly excited was the arrival of Jason Cummings on-loan from Nottingham Forest.

The 22-year-old, a noted fan of the Light Blues, had previously scored goals for fun for Hibernian and fans were excited to see what he could do for the Ibrox side.

Unfortunately the move hasn’t worked as well as the player and supporters would have hoped for yet, but that isn’t all down to Cummings.

He has been a tad unfortunate to be in competition with Alfredo Morelos for the one striking role that manager Graeme Murty likes to play, and since Cummings’ arrival he has often been stuck on the bench.

The player doesn’t work well as a lone striker, he is far better in a partnership, which was proven when in a rare start for the Gers, he had a very quiet game when he replaced Morelos in the 1-0 loss to Kilmarnock.

Cummings has scored goals for the Light Blues in his short time at the club, five in 13 appearances, but only five of those appearances have been from the start.

At this moment in time, Cummings isn’t yet worth signing on a permanent deal at the end of the season, but things could change if he gets more game time, or perhaps more significantly, a new manager arrives at Ibrox, but only time will tell on that.
