Cummings eager for opportunity

17 June 2017

New signing Jason Cummings is looking forward to testing himself against the Championship's best after making the move from Hibernian.

The 21-year-old striker signed for The Reds for an undisclosed fee and he is keen to make an impression in pre-season to secure his place in Mark Warburton's team.

He said: "I am absolutely delighted. It is a massive club and a great opportunity for me. Obviously I am gutted to leave Hibs as I enjoyed my time there but I just feel it is the right time to move on and further my career.

"It is a massive club and I played against the manager's team a couple of years ago and I like the way they played. I had a couple of mates in his team then and they only said good things about him so I am looking forward to playing under him.

"I want to play football and score goals and the way that the manager's teams play, they normally create a lot of chances so I feel that I am in the right team to create chances and hopefully I can get a few goals.

"I have heard a few from a few of my friends, who have come down here to play, about English football but obviously I have never played in England so it is all new to me. I think I will adapt to it – the goals don't move as they say.

"I'm not coming here to just walk into the team. I have come here to learn as I will be playing with, and against, a lot better players so I am still at the learning stages and, with the gaffer here, I will only get better."
