Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has yet to bring in a striker as part of his ongoing Rangers revolution, but Jason Cummings wants to return to Ibrox following his loan spell with the Gers last season.
STV sports reporter Raman Bhardwaj revealed on Twitter the 22-year old’s desire to return to the Light Blues, but also revealed that the Gers and his club Nottingham Forest are not close to a deal to bring him back to the club.

Cummings didn’t really do enough for the Gers last season to show that he was worth giving a permanent deal to, although he wasn’t helped by spending a lot of time on the subs’ bench.
Gerrard should look for other striking options to compliment Alfredo Morelos first, before deciding to bring back Cummings.
Cummings is certainly a decent striker, but Gerrard and Gers director of football Mark Allen could get better value for money than what Forest will be demanding for the hitman who scored six goals for the Gers.
If the Gers are coming towards the start of the season and have not managed to find another forward, then that will be the time to bring him back to Ibrox, but until then the Gers should keep looking for another player who can put the ball in the back of the net.
