Jason Cummings hit a superb hat-trick against Falkirk on Sunday to fire Rangers into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.
The 4-1 win against the Bairns means the Gers will now face Celtic in a mouthwatering clash at Hampden to determine who’ll get to go on to Scottish football’s showpiece final in May.
Supporters though, while hugely impressed with Cummings’ goalscoring performance, still believe that Graeme Murty show play Alfredo Morelos in next week’s match against the Bhoys in the Scottish Premiership.
The Colombian missed a number of chances to score yesterday but hasn’t been shy in finding the back of the net this season, with 17 goals in all competitions.
Cummings is a lethal finisher but fans believe Morelos’ all-round game will be better suited to the Hoops match, especially if Murty decides to play just one striker up front.
Competition is fierce for first team places at Rangers right now, which can only be a positive, and supporters will be eager to see which striker is chosen next week.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the debate after Sunday’s match…
Seeing too many fans suggest Cummings starts ahead of Morelos next weekend. Nonsense.

I’d still start Morelos over Cummings. They are scared of his physical presence. Cummings doesn’t offer us that. Morelos had a bad day at the office. However I would stick with Cummings on the left if Murphy doesn’t make it.

Strikers want to score goals & with Morelos missing his chances he clearly wasn't happy. Cummings took his chances & strolled off the pitch full of confidence. Would still start Morelos on Sunday.

Morelos vs Cummings.
Morelos is the better all rounder, Cummings is the better finisher.

Struggling to buy into the idea that we should drop our top goal scorer and best striker because our backup striker scored a hatrick v Falkirk.

Anyone who thinks we should drop Morelos simply because Cummings scored against a poor champion shot team is deluded. Morelos is the best striker in the league and playing well. Murty would not be that daft

IMHO I think Cummings is a better STRIKER than Morelos… but with the formation and tactics we play, it should be Morelos who starts on Sunday if we are going one up.
Cummings brings something different to the table and is clinical, something Morelos is not.

Cummings was awesome today but if we’re going one up top next week and I suspect we will then it has to be Morelos. It’s a no brainer for me 🤷🏻♀️
