The signing of Jamie Murphy over the course of the weekend has delighted the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern, though they are hoping the club’s proactive recruitment policy doesn’t stop there. Indeed, many of our local Light Blues are already discussing more targets.
Though the Gers were busy wrapping up a loan deal for the Brighton star, it didn’t stop the proverbial transfer rumour mill from churning. In fact, they were linked with a move to bring former Hibernian striker Jason Cummings back to Scotland after a fairly miserable time of things at Nottingham Forest.
The 22-year-old was signed by Mark Warburton over the course of the summer, though he has since been sacked at the City Ground, leaving the Scotland international out in the cold. With that in mind, a return to Scotland could reportedly on the cards.
Cummings once famously quipped that betting on him to score against Rangers was like ‘printing money’. During his time at Easter Road, Cummings was a constant thorn in Rangers’ side, famously describing his first touch as that of an ‘angel’ during a 1-3 win for the Cabbage and Ribs at Ibrox in 2014/15.
There’s never a dull moment with Cummings. Whether it be online wrestling videos, getting stupidly sent off or scoring wonder goals (sometimes in the same game)a move to Rangers would make total sense.
Graeme Murty’s frontline has lacked a consistent edge for much of the campaign and, considering the forward’s strong record in Scotland, he would certainly add goals to a side who must be seriously considering looking for a long-term replacement for Kenny Miller.
