RANGERS’ hat-trick hero Jason Cummings is determined to shoot down Celtic’s hopes of making history with back-to-back double trebles.

The on-loan Nottingham Forest striker claimed the first treble of his career in Graeme Murty’s side’s 4-1 win over Falkirk at Ibrox yesterday.

Cummings’s strikes an an unfortunate own goal from the visitor’s skipper Aaron Muirhead set up a Scottish Cup semi-final clash next month with Brendan Rodgers’ holders of the trophy.

The ex-Hibs hitman is desperate to face the Hoops in the Premiership at Ibrox on Sunday and then the last-four confrontation at Hampden next month.

Cummings said: “I’ve been in the game for a few years and I’ve never actually scored a hat-trick. It’s a good feeling to get that, especially at Ibrox.


“We just want to do our best. Obviously, it’s going to be hard, but if we win every game and put a bit of pressure on them that’s all we can do, starting next week.

“We’re going to go and try to beat them, that’s what we’ll set out to do and push them as far as we can.

“Of course, we don’t want to see Celtic winning trebles and winning all the time. “We’re trying to put a bit more pressure on them and I feel like we are.

“We can just take it week by week and win every game we can and we’ll see what happens. The boys are buzzing, these are the games you want.

“We’re going to have to beat them to win the Cup, so why not just make it the semi-final?

“The boys are confident just now and we can’t wait to play.”
