Hibernian youngster makes a joke about Ibrox side Rangers

Hibernian forward Jason Cummings says that he wishes he could play Ibrox side Rangers every week.

Hibernian forward Jason Cummings has told The Scottish Sun that he wishes he could play Rangers every week.

The 20-year-old highly-rated forward has scored quite frequently against the Gers, who have already won the Scottish Championship title this campaign and will play in the Scottish Premiership next season.

The Scotland Under-21 international scored against Rangers yet again on Wednesday evening, as Hibs won 3-2 at home in the Scottish Championship.

The goal at Easter Road was Cummings’s eighth in just 10 matches against the Glasgow giants, and the youngster has joked that he would love to play against them every week.

“I wish I could play them every week!” the youngster told The Scottish Sun about Rangers. “I do say to everyone to get me for first goal. It’s free money. The odds are getting slashed every week I play Rangers because it’s printing money!

“I do get tweeted by a lot of people who have me on first goal each time I play. And I have scored quite a few first goals this season so a few people have made a few quid off me.”

Hibernian are aiming to gain promotion to the Scottish Premiership via the Championship playoffs.

Alan Stubbs’s side will face Rangers in the final of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Cummings will surely be looking to add to his goal-tally against Rangers, and Hibernian fans will hope that it proves to be the winner.
