Rangers man meets with reported Allen summer target in bid to 'force' Ibrox move – confirmed
Rangers striker Jason Cummings has admitted to a rather unorthodox method of helping Mark Allen with his summer transfers.
The Daily Record has claimed that Rangers have been watching John McGinn for months and that Mark Allen has made new manager Steven Gerrard aware of how highly they rate him.
On-loan striker Cummings is keen to make his move to Ibrox permanent and hsa said he wants McGinn to join him at the new Rangers revolution.
Talking in the Daily Record, Cummings said: “I was actually with McGinn yesterday. I tried to get him to come. I’m not too sure if that will go through but I hope it does, because I have played with him for years and he is a good mate of mine.
“I was trying to force him to come, but I don’t know what he’ll do to be honest. You’ll need to ask him but I’d love to see him here.”

Rangers fans love Cummings and you can see why. He wears his heart on his sleeve and in today’s world of carefully orchestrated PR statements from players, he’s a breath of fresh air. He’s already said he wants a permanent move to Rangers and now he’s trying to convince John McGinn to join too. We’re not entirely sure whether a Cummings-approach will beat one from Mark Allen and Steven Gerrard, especially as it’s not even certain whether Cummings will be a Rangers player next season, but Rangers fans will find it hilarious that he’s tried – and talked about it. One thing we can predict with almost certainty is that if Cummings does join Rangers in the summer, that his mouth will get him into trouble at least once in the coming season. We hope he gets the move he wants and we also think there’s a good chance that McGinn will have his head turned by Gerrard and make the summer move to Ibrox.
