Northern Irish champions Linfield have been linked with a move for ex-Rangers striker Jason Cummings following a Covid-19 bust-up at current club Dundee.

The 26-year-old forward has had an up-and-down career to date and now his latest spell at Dens Park appears to be over following a fall-out with manager James McPake.

The Courier claim that David Healy’s Linfield side are now monitoring the situation surrounding Jason Cummings with the player expected to leave the Scottish Premiership side this month.

This is after Jason Cummings attended the Open Goal event at the Glasgow Hydro in December without the Dundee club’s permission and amid Covid-19 crowd fears.


James McPake then fumed after the striker turned up the next day “unfit to train” at the club.

The Jason Cummings links to Linfield also come despite reports that the player was set to come back into the fold at Dundee following the winter break.

This was after manager James McPake shot down the suggestion the striker could be set for a move to A-League club Central Coast Mariners.

“I have saw the report but that’s all I know about it,” said McPake [ScottishSun].

“Jason is back training with the first team and has trained well.”

Linfield linked to Jason Cummings as career continues to stall post-Rangers

Jason Cummings was once one of Scottish football’s brightest young talents but ever since breaking through at Hibs he has struggled to make the most of his early promise.

A popular and eccentric character wherever he has been, Cummings’ career has continued to-and-fro ever since leaving Easter Road.

Signing for Nottingham Forest when Mark Warburton was manager in 2017, two years at the City Ground failed to herald any real rewards with loan moves at Rangers, Peterborough and Luton in between.

Since then Cummings has turned out for Shrewsbury and Dundee and despite finding his best form since leaving Hibs at Dens Park, the striker could be on his way out this January.

Jason Cummings played 18 times in total for Rangers in a six-month loan spell in early 2018, scoring six goals.

Meanwhile, one European club manager has admitted his fear regarding the future of a heavily Rangers-linked star as his contract ticks down.
