FORMER HIBS STRIKER COMPLETES LOAN

Former Hibs and Rangers striker Jason Cummings has completed a season-long loan move to Peterborough.

The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season at Ibrox after failing to cement his place in the first-team at Nottingham Forest.

Rangers decided against trying to bring the striker back to the club despite reportedly having a first-refusal clause inserted into the deal, and he found himself still frozen out by City boss Aitor Karanka when he returned down south.

Prior to his move from Easter Road in the summer of 2017, Cummings was viewed as one of the brightest prospects in Scottish football.
