Has Gerrard's decision on Jason Cummings been proved right?

Steven Gerrard’s decision not to move for one-time Rangers loanee Jason Cummings is beginning to look like the right one. The striker looks set to move on from his loan deal at Peterborough in this window.
The 23-year-old Nottingham Forest striker is on-loan at Peterborough and the club’s owner Darragh MacAnthony was speaking about his future on Twitter. MacAnthony said Cummings had been the subject of “multiple enquiries”.

MacAnthony seemed to confirm interest and movement for the striker. He said: “If a club come in for him, Forest can recall him & get him out playing. There are multiple enquiries. Wish him well.”

The talented and eccentric striker was at Ibrox for six months last year. Whilst he quickly became a fan favourite, Cumdog was ordinary on the pitch.

Cummings lacked consistency and focus during Rangers spell

He got six goals in 18 games, three of them coming in the one match against lower league Falkirk.
The problem with Cummings was his lack of focus. It continues to plague his career. At Ibrox he started strongly but soon faded away. It has been the same at Peterborough, where he knocked in six goals in Peterborough’s opening six league games.
But the striker hasn’t scored a league goal since August.
Between the Guccis and kicking steaks across Dubai restaurants, Jason Cummings will probably be better remembered for his off-field antics. He was a likable character but Gerrard decided he wouldn’t move for him after taking the Rangers job.

It’s a decision that’s being proven right at the moment. But what next for Jason?
Cummings could be set for a return to Hibs, with Manager Neil Lennon saying “we know Jason very well.” It’s a move that has to be right for the striker, who now needs to knuckle down and get settled for a few years.

As for Nottingham Forest loanees, could the latest managerial change at the City Ground have an impact on the future of one currently at Rangers?
