JASON Cummings says he doesn’t care what reception he gets at Easter Road on Sunday, his focus will remain on trying to get Rangers into second place.

The season draws to a close this weekend and the Gers must win and hope Aberdeen drop points in order to finish as runners-up in the league.

This will be Cummings’ first return to Hibernian since leaving the club last summer and he admits he isn’t sure what to expect.

Speaking to the media Cummings smiled: “I am looking forward to it, it will be a wee bit weird going back because I was there playing at Easter Road for three or four years. It is something I am looking forward to.

“I’m not sure what reception I’ll get there; I think it will be a mixed bag. They don’t really like Rangers there so I am not going to get cheered but I did well there so I would hope they wouldn’t boo me.

“If they boo me they boo me, I have been booed before and called a lot worse – I’m not too bothered.

“I am just going there to do my job for Rangers and I am hoping we can get second place.

“It is simple, there is always pressure on Rangers, every game we need to win, it doesn’t matter where it is or what it is for.

“We need to win this game and that is what we will be going there to do, hopefully that is enough to get second.”

Cummings’ loan from Nottingham Forrest ends this summer and he confesses with Steven Gerrard taking over as manager in June he would like to make the move permanent. He says he is proud to have been a Rangers player.

The striker has netted half a dozen goals since his January move and he wants to end the season on a high.

He continued: “It is very exciting; I think it has brought a lot of positivity to the boys and especially the fans. They deserve something to be happy about and something to look forward to and it is definitely that.

“The first thing for me and everyone else is to get this game out the way on Sunday and hopefully get a victory and get second place too.

“He will definitely be watching, no doubt about that and it will be up to him who he wants to bring in. I will need to impress him; I want to be here so I will need to do my best.

“I think it has been hard and frustrating for me but I am definitely glad I have done it; it has been the best experience to play for such a big club like Rangers.

“It is something I will look back on when I am older, that I actually played for Rangers.

“Every time I have played I have tried my best, I have scored six goals but I have only started about seven games. I was hoping I would get a few more starts.

“I am just looking to the future and to Sunday trying to get second place. I think it is just the beginning for me with Rangers and hopefully next year I can kick on back here. Up here I have loved it.”
