Controversial former Rangers attacker Jason Cummings is set to be offered a move to the A-League after finding himself frozen out at Dundee, according to The Scottish Sun.
Cummings, who spent time on loan at Rangers from Nottingham Forest in 2018, enraged Dee boss James McPake by attending the Open Goal show at the Hydro earlier this month and then reporting ‘unfit to train’ the following day.
He was subsequently banished to the U18s squad and didn’t make the travelling party for Dundee’s defeat at Aberdeen on Boxing Day, with McPake instead opting to name just four substitutes.
The striker is contracted until the end of the season but it’s been reported that his current employers will try to offload him during the January transfer window.
Initially, it was thought that Cummings might struggle for offers following this latest disciplinary breach.
However, The Scottish Sun reports that A-League club Central Coast Mariners want him down under.
It’s asserted that Mariners boss Nick Montgomery, who represented Scotland at youth level, is a big fan of the former Ger and is keen to add him to his squad.
An original A-League club, ‘the Coasties’ finished third in the league last season and currently sit in fourth just a handful of matches into the new campaign.
At times during his Ibrox stint, Cummings showed evidence of real ability but he’s never really settled at one club and ill discipline has held him back in his career.
He still has time to make more of his talent, though, and with his bridges burned in Dundee, a fresh start in Oz could be just what he needs.
