Murty must unleash Rangers 22-year-old in clash against Celtic


Rangers manager Graeme Murty takes his side to Celtic Park on Sunday in the Scottish Premiership – and the Gers boss must unleash striker Jason Cummings against the Hoops.

Cummings, 22, started ahead of Colombian Alfredo Morelos in last weekend’s win over Hearts at Ibrox and should continue in the side as he tries to win a permanent move to Ibrox in the summer.

The former Hibs striker has an impressive six goals in fourteen appearances with more than half of those appearances coming from the bench.

The Scotland international joined the Gers on loan from Nottingham Forest in January and could earn a permanent switch to Ibrox with the Gers having a deal already agreed with Forest.

Morelos has struggled for form in recent weeks and could do with a few games out of the side, creating an opportunity for Cummings to come on and impress as the Gers try to secure second in the Scottish Premiership.

With only four games left in the campaign, the opportunities for Cummings to earn a long-term deal are running out and the Old Firm clash on Sunday seems like the perfect game for the 22-year-old to properly arrive as a Rangers player.

Come the end of the season, Cummings could still end up going back to Forest but if he is given the chance to impress over the coming weeks there is little doubt that he will prove exactly how lethal he can be.
