'Time he got the finger out' - Davie Provan warns new Rangers arrival that he must live up to hype
Former Celtic and Scotland winger Davie Provan has warned new Rangers striker Jason Cummings that he has a lot to live up to.
Provan has advised the 22-year-old to keep the head to avoid following in the footsteps of the likes of Tony Watt, who failed to make it at the Old Firm.
“It’s time he got the finger out and started living up to his own hype” Provan said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“If he trains properly and gets a serious head on, he certainly has the talent to crack it at Ibrox. Anything else would be a betrayal of that ability.
“Like Cummings, Tony Watt appeared to have the world at his feet. Now? The former Celtic kid is playing in the Belgian second division with OH Leuven and couldn’t be further out of the Scotland picture.”
Cummings joined the Gers from Nottingham Forest on a loan-deal until the end of the season, which could become permanent if he has a good half-season at Ibrox.
The former Hibs striker had a great record against new club whilst he played at Easter Road, scoring eight times against the Gers.
Cummings moved to Forest in the summer after helping Hibs clinch promotion back to the Scottish Premiership, for a undisclosed fee.
He found it difficult to hold down a place at the City Ground, scoring only four goals in 17 games, including one league goal.
Interestingly, Cummings has never played a single minute in the Scottish Premiership so far in his career, the big test for the player will be proving that he has the ability to handle the step up of playing for a Rangers team which are still expected to win most matches that they play.
