Former Rangers striker set to sign for A-League club

Former Rangers striker Jason Cummings is set to join A-League club Central Coast Mariners, Dundee manager James McPake has confirmed [The Courier].

Cummings spent time on loan at Ibrox in 2018 and scored a hat-trick in a Scottish Cup quarter-final victory over Falkirk.

However, he didn’t do enough to land a permanent deal with the Gers and he’s struggled to settle elsewhere since.

He helped Dundee gain promotion back to the Premiership last season but hit the headlines in December after attending the Open Goal Live event in Glasgow without permission and then being deemed unfit to train the following day.

Cummings was banished to Dundee’s U18s squad by his furious manager and left out of several matchday squads as punishment.

He made the bench for Dundee’s Premiership defeat to Livingston on Tuesday night but has been linked with a move down under and now McPake has confirmed that the A-League switch is imminent.

“Jason was in today and is booked for a flight on Saturday,” he said. [The Courier].

“We wish him all the best, he helped us get promoted and I hope he does do well out in Australia [with the Mariners].

“I hope he goes there, shows the type of player he can be when things are right and scores goals.”

Cummings’ talent has never really been in doubt and he’s showed glimpses of quality in the past, including during his time with the Gers.

However, a lack of application and discipline have undoubtedly held him back.

It’ll be interesting to see if a change of scenery helps him knuckle down and thrive with the Mariners, who are currently fifth in the A-League table.

Meanwhile, Rangers are in Scottish Cup action tonight against Stirling Albion and here’s our Predicted XI for the tie.
