Hibernian’s Jason Cummings has a message for Rangers

Hibernian won 2-1 against Rangers in the Scottish Championship on Sunday.

Hibernian forward Jason Cummings has told The Daily Mail that his side can beat Rangers to the Scottish Championship title this season.

The 20-year-old made the comments following Hibs’ 2-1 victory over the Gers at Easter Road in the league on Sunday.

“It’s a massive three points,” Cummings told The Daily Mail. “With Rangers going on that massive unbeaten run and for us to beat them… we’re going to see how they’ll react to that.”

“Our confidence is through the roof now and I can’t see us getting beat any time soon and with them getting beat their heads are going to be down,” added the young Scot. “So it’s going to be interesting. The belief is there and we can definitely win the title.”

As things stand, Hibernian are second in the Scottish Championship table with 28 points from 12 matches.

Rangers remain at the top of the standings despite Sunday’s loss, five points clear of Hibs.

The Gers should still be considered favourites to win the league title this season as they have the best squad in the division.

However, it will be interesting to see how Mark Warburton’s side react to Sunday’s defeat, which was their first in the Scottish Championship this campaign.

Rangers are back in action next weekend when they take on Alloa Athletic at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship.

Hibernian will take on Dundee United at home in the quarter-finals of the Scottish League Cup on Wednesday before facing St. Mirren in the league on Saturday.
