    Should have been one of the first on his list.
    Might be a bit of an idiot at times but he knows where the net is ,and has faith in his own ability unlike some of the shysters he did buy.

    Unless it's a superstar I really would be quite happy to see the club refuse to deal with nearly every other Scottish club.
    Entirely fed up with the shite the club has to endure just to sign a promising player & the always inflated fee is an insult.
    I'd enrich not a single one of them ever again.

    That's true.
    Good shout m8.
    We should concentrate solely on tapping players thru their agents & scunner their shitty clubs by paying fuk all for them.

    I like it.

    Hivs won't sell to us unless we offer a ridiculous over inflated price.

    On that basis I'm out.

    Not at all m8.
    If other clubs were to show any sign of dealing with us as they do every other, then I'd be happy for the club to deal with them.
    With our finances as they are, this is a good time for younger players to be at Rangers, they are more likely than ever to actually play & further themselves.
    But until clubs stop all their carry on where Rangers & the transfer market are concerned, yes, I'd rather see us avoid that rigmarole.
    We've subsidised these clubs for years by paying inflated fees for their players & we've only been treated with contempt & disdain for our efforts.
    Combined with their treatment of the club in recent years to maintain sporting integrity, Im quite comfy in stating my opinion that we don't owe any of them a bloody thing.

    No we don't of course. Cummings is one of the best in the SPL. If we could get him for a fair price why not go for it ? They name their price we offer what we think he's worth if they accept job done
    If not we move on
    My point was more along the lines of would you want him at Rangers, because he's better than what we have or would people not want him for the simple reason he's at Hibs? I get your point though

    Cummings is a good player but there is no way I would give money to Hibs.

    M8, I only want to see the best available players playing for us.
    If he's deemed to be that player then I support it.
    But I'd think it would be a non starter.
    I can't see their current manager making any efforts to help us.
    Out of all the Scottish clubs, I'd say Hibs were the least likely to deal favourably with us.
    I reckon we're going to be seeing some names we haven't heard of before anyway.
    Managers tend to fish in ponds they know & our pond ain't Pedro's pond.

    Only way Hibs would sell to us was if he had a release clause in his contract (heard £1.3m but could be nonsense).

    Last night sums up Jason Cummings. Scores a cracking goal then 5 minutes later gets stupidly sent off. A real chance he'll end up another Derek Riordan or Garry O'Conner.

    We already have a player who tries to do that: Joe Garner.

    If we placed a bid for him, it would drag out over 3 weeks then the filth would cash in on Dembele, bid less than us and their scumbag board and manager would sell him the the manks.

    Unless he wanted the move and was out of contract I'd leave this be.

    Good player but not a fan of his attitude, and I'd happily see us never do business with the bigger teams in Scotland again, and especially Hibs. Any deal discussed will be subject to the 'Rangers tax' as we should all be well aware of after the Scott Allan saga. Unless we're taking them for nothing at the end of their contract I'd steer clear.

    The mentality of clubs in that respect has to be questioned as well, as Hibs were quite happy to sell Scott Allan's career down the river just to stick two fingers up to us, so as far as I'm concerned I don't want to give them a penny of our money.

    The only player I'd be prepared to make an attempt to sign out with his contract being up would be Jamie Walker at Hearts.

    Also worth noting that talk of him being one of the top strikers in Scotland, proven goalscorer etc, is a bit premature given that he's never actually scored a goal in the top flight. He made 18 league appearances for Hibs the season they got relegated and never scored once, all his goals have either been in the Championship or the cups.

    If we're going to mitigate that by saying he was playing in a team that got relegated and so weren't playing well, then surely we also have to consider that when talking about our strikers, as I think we all agree the team hasn't been playing well for most of this season, and chances haven't exactly been easy to come by for them.

    So while Cummings does have a good record in the Championship there's no guarantee that he can make the step up, so paying what will inevitably be an over-inflated fee for a guy who has shown that even when things are going well he has a tendency to be rash and hot-headed represents a massive risk.

    I would love it if we signed Jason Cummings. He's got about 70 goals for Hibs in the last 3 seasons. Scored goals against Hearts, Aberdeen, St.Johnstone, us, etc. Loves the big occasion and shows a mental toughness that's very rare. We should've signed him last summer before he signed the new contract with Hibs. By all accounts the lad was willing to move but we went for Garner instead.

    Why is this thread still open? As far as I know we have not expressed any desire to sign him, and he has not expressed any desire to sign for us.

    Pointless discussion.
