As he comes into some fine form with Peterborough United, will Rangers regret not going for Jason Cummings?
The former Hibernian front-man has made a fine start down the road with United. Making just seven appearances so far, Cummings has managed to bag six in a good start to the campaign.
Rangers took Cummings on for a six month loan spell during the second half of last season. To say it didn’t work out would perhaps be an overstatement, but he certainly didn’t leave too strong a mark.
The Scottish international only managed to net six goals in 19 appearances in Glasgow. Then again, nine of those appearances were from the bench.
Steven Gerrard may or may not have taken Cummings into considering. But the Rangers manager could be forgiven for having a wandering eye for the in-form front-man these days. The striker has yet to score in the month of September, but he’s making real improvements to his game at the ABAX Stadium.

Under Steve Evans, Cummings appears to be enjoying his football once more. Yet, it wasn’t a move to Posh that he was originally after.
Cummings’ Rangers love
The Peterborough front-man was in the news just last week claiming that Rangers was the only place he wanted to go. With game-time not forthcoming at Nottingham Forest, the apparent Gers fan still craves a move back to Ibrox.
Gerrard certainly doesn’t have his options to seek up front regardless. Alfredo Morelos is fresh off of his first cap for Colombia, whilst Kyle Lafferty will prove to be a real strong acquisition for the club.
Umar Sadiq is also sitting waiting for a chance, with supporters keen to see what he can provide Gerrard’s side.
An argument can possibly be made that Cummings would’ve been a better option to have than Sadiq. If the new Gers signing was a favourite of Gerrard’s, he would surely be seeing more game-time.
It’s all ifs buts and maybes, but Rangers could do a lot worse than go back in for Cummings, even as back-up.
Gerrard will have his own targets in mind in January, but the striker is certainly rebuilding his reputation down at Peterborough in the meantime.
