COMMENT

Rangers striker Jason Cummings arrived to Ibrox amid much fanfare in January but since swapping Nottingham for Glasgow, his lack of starts is starting to be a major concern.

The 22-year-old has largely been a bit-part player since arriving at Ibrox and was limited to eight minutes from the bench in Saturday’s Scottish Premiership draw with Motherwell.

Cummings has made 13 appearances so far but has made the bulk of them as a substitute and has only started twice in the league.

The Scotland international has an agreement in place to make his move to Ibrox permanent in the summer but if Cummings has been unable to displace Alfredo Morelos or Josh Windass from the starting XI despite their recent form it raises questions over whether a long-term move would be worthwhile.

Cummings clearly has an eye for goal – the on-loan striker has scored five times so far for the Gers – but hasn’t really been given the chance to show what he can do with a prolonged run of games in the starting XI.

With Morelos’ Ibrox future up in the air and Windass suffering an injury in the 2-2 draw with Motherwell it could give Cummings an opportunity to prove he has a long-term future with the Light Blues.

In other Rangers news, an outspoken BBC pundit has slammed this Gers player after the draw with Motherwell, claiming he was “unbelievably bad”.
