Rangers new signing looking forward to Old Firm derby against Celtic

Graeme Murty’s Glasgow Rangers have signed Russel Martin and Jason Cummings to Ibrox, and the latter is looking forward to playing against Old Firm rivals and Brendan Rodger’s Celtic side.

The Rangers new signing has told the club’s official website that he is looking forward to playing against the Bhoys in the Old Firm derby in the Scottish Premiership scheduled to take place on March 10, 2018.

He wants to play for the Gers against Celtic, having joined the club from Norwich City in the January transfer window. Martin have joined Rangers loan from Norwich City in the Championship in England for the rest of the season.

Martin told Rangers’ official website that:

“The Old Firm is one I am looking forward to, you grow up watching those games, regardless of where you are from, it is of huge interest to everyone.”

“Hopefully I will get myself in the team by then and be playing and can look forward to it.”

Rangers are back in action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Highland League club Fraserburgh away from the home at Bellslea Park in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Ahead of the match, Fraserburgh captain Ryan Christie has spoken of his excitement at shaking hands with former Liverpool defender Danny Wilson, who is likely to be the skipper for Rangers in the clash.

He told The Scottish Sun:

“I am a Liverpool fan and it looks like it will be Danny Wilson who will be Rangers’ captain on the day.”

“I’d been having a think about that and it would be a bit strange if that’s the case as I remember being happy when he moved to Anfield. I am a Liverpool man through and through.”

Meanwhile, Jason Cummings’s father has expressed his delight on social networking site Twitter at the 22-year-old striker’s move to Rangers.

The Scotland international has joined Graeme Murty’s side on loan from Nottingham Forest in the Championship in England on loan for the rest of the season, leading David Cummings to express his delight at the switch.
