Could Rangers hijack reported St. Johnstone move for Jason Cummings?

Former Rangers striker Jason Cummings has been linked with a move back to the Scottish Premiership with goal-shy St. Johnstone.
The Evening Telegraph is claiming that Tommy Wright’s side could be set to secure the Nottingham Forest forward on a season-long loan from the City Ground.
But could Rangers have one eye on the deal or have we long since moved on from the striker?

Jason Cummings spent a short spell on loan at Rangers between January 2018 and the end of the 17/18 season.

A fan favourite during his time here, the player scored six goals in 18 games for the Ibrox club.
But upon Steven Gerrard’s appointment at Rangers, Jason Cummings was deemed not good enough and a permanent move for the player decided against.
It was a major disappointment to Cummings who always said he fancied a return to Rangers.

Since then there have been murmurs amongst the support that the player could do a job for us. But it is something that remains incredibly unlikely.
Whilst a likeable character, off-field issues and a lack of consistency have blighted the 23-year-old’s career so far.
If Steven Gerrard was right to decide against signing the player last season, Cummings has done little during loan spells at Peterborough and Luton Town to change his mind between time.

But perhaps a move back up to Scotland will help the forward catch Steven Gerrard’s eye in the future.
After all, there is a player in there somewhere, but there remains real doubts over his ability to make the grade at Ibrox.
Whatever happens with Cummings, Rangers are in need of a new striker. Kyle Lafferty has been released from his contract by mutual consent.
