DESPITE Rangers cruising into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup Jason Cummings wasn’t happy – he wanted more goals for himself.
The Gers put five past Ayr United in destructive second-half after going in level at 1-1 at the break.
Cummings scored the first of those second period goals but was frustrated not to add more to his Light Blues tally, which now stands at two since his January loan move from Nottingham Forest.
The 22-year-old linked up with Alfredo Morelos for the first time at Somerset Park in a starting XI as the pair formed a successful strike partnership.
Speaking to RangersTV Cummings smiled:
“I just wanted to score when I had the chance, I didn’t think it was coming so I thought I’ll get one and I actually wanted more, I wasn’t happy.
“The celebration was a bit of a fool; I just saw a wee toilet roll and launched it! It didn’t spin out though it just got launched but I’ll take it!
“It was good playing with Alfredo; I think we worked well together. It was our first game so it is only going to get better as time goes on and he got a couple of goals as well so it was all good.
“Josh was good today as well and chipped in with a couple of goals so I thought as a front three we played decent, especially the second-half. We are all starting to build a good relationship.”
Rangers suffered an early scare when Alan Forrest scored with just 12 minutes on the clock and Cummings admits the Honest Men made the first-half a tough one.
The Gers now face Falkirk in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup which Cummings won back in 2016.
He continued: “The boys are happy to be in the next round, which was the main thing coming here.
“I thought it was kind of a game of two halves, first-half we weren’t at our best and fair play to them, they made it hard for us and they got their goal.
“They made it a bit sticky for us and we came out second-half the Rangers team that we are trying to be more like. It is the team I see in training every day and that is what we need to be like more often – I thought second-half we were brilliant.
“It is there, it is just being a bit more consistent. You saw the chances we created, we could of had more and the goals we scored were some nice goals. The play was good and at the end of the day it is all positive.
“I would like a home tie, it doesn’t really matter who we get because we will concentrate on us and the boys, that’s all that matters.”
