'Different class' - Jason Cummings delivers verdict on Rangers fans
Rangers striker Jason Cummings has dedicated his goal in the 2-1 win over Ross County to the Gers support – calling them “different class.”
Cummings hit the net in the 81st minute to grab his first goal for the Ibrox giants since completing a season-long loan move from Nottingham Forest earlier this month.
Daniel Candeias had put the Light Blues 1-0 up in the first-half when he beat Aaron McCarey from long distance.
Cummings said the Gers fans had taken him in “with open arms” after his move and scoring “a few” times against the Light Blues.
“They’ve been different class with me, so that goal was for them,” Cummings said, as quoted by BT Sport.
“I’d scored a few against them in the past but that’s what happens in football. Now I’m here to score a few for them.
“They’ve taken me in with open arms, so I appreciate that.”
The 22-year-old has made two appearances from the bench so far but could make his first start in Wednesday’s Scottish Cup fourth round clash with Highland League minnows Fraserburgh.
Cummings only joined Forest in the summer but decided to try his luck elsewhere after failing to hold down a regular first-team place under Mark Warburton before the former Gers boss was sacked on December 31st and replaced with Aitor Karanka.
During his time with Hibs, Cummings scored 71 times in 149 appearances for the Easter Road side and helped fire them to a Scottish Cup win and promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.
The 22-year-old made his debut for Scotland in November’s Pittodrie friendly with the Netherlands.
Despite being at Ibrox on loan, the Gers have an agreement in place to make Cummings’ move permanent in the summer if he impresses.
