Jason Cummings delivers verdict on first Rangers goal in win v Ross County
Rangers striker Jason Cummings insists he’ll remember scoring his first Rangers goal for a “long time” after hitting the net in the 2-1 win over Ross County on Sunday.
Cummings was a second-half substitute for Alfredo Morelos and only needed four minutes to fire beyond Ross County keeper Aaron McCarey to give the Gers a 2-0 lead.
County scored a late penalty to narrow the Gers’ lead to one goal but they Ibrox side held on to secure three points and overtake Aberdeen in the league table.
Cummings admitted he was “buzzing” to score his first goal for the Gers and revealed he’s “got that feeling” he’ll score before every game.
“It’s something I’ll remember for a long time, my first goal for Rangers,” Cummings said, as quoted by the Gers’ official website.
“Warming up in front of the fans I couldn’t believe the reception I was getting so I was eager to get on and just to get a chance. It came to me and I got a wee bit of luck, it hit the defender, but it went in and I was buzzing.
“Every game I’ve got that feeling that I’m going to score. Today I did, I had a gut instinct that if I got on I would get a chance and I would take it.”
Cummings has made two appearances from the bench for the Ibrox giants after completing his loan switch from Nottingham Forest two weeks ago.
The 22-year-old could make his first start when the Gers take on Highland League minnows Fraserburgh on Wednesday night in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup at tiny Bellslea Park.
The winner will meet League One Ayr United at Somerset Park in the fifth round of Scotland’s showpiece tournament.
Daniel Candeias scored the Gers’ other goal in the win over Owen Coyle’s side in Dingwall.
