JASON CUMMINGS loved scoring for Hibs against Rangers as much as he did wrestling – now he's out to crush his old gaffer Neil Lennon.

Cummings netted in all four Championship games against the Ibrox men a couple of seasons ago before winning a move to Nottingham Forest.

He's back in Scotland on loan and started at Fraserburgh in midweek after coming off the bench to net against Ross County last Sunday.

With Alfredo Moreles said to be “confused” by the interest in him from China there's every chance Cummings will start against the side who he helped win the Scottish Cup against Rangers.

Players love notching against their former sides – even if most don't celebrate – and Cummings is 5-1 at bet365 to net first and 6-4 to score at anytime. Only back them if he starts.

Rangers bought well in the window and have won three out of three after the break and it should be four out of four even if their recent record is poor with successive 3-2 defeats at Ibrox.

They did win 2-1 at Easter Road in December and are a best evens at William Hill to pick up the points. Hibs are 3-1 at bet365 with the draw 13-5 at McBookie.

There should be goals and for those who like omens another 3-2 Hibs win is 28-1 at McBookie. Both to score and over 2.5 goals should land at 31-25 with Marathonbet.

Hibs loaned Simon Murray to Dundee and dumped Anthony Stokes but brought in Florian Kamberi from Grasshoppers and he netted on his debut against Motherwell in midweek. He is 8-1 at McBookie to score first.

Celtic were back to their best in beating Hearts in midweek and are 3-10 to win at Kilmarnock this lunchtime.

The Hoops have won nine of their last 10 visits to Rugby Park but were held at home by Steve Clarke's men in October.

Killie have made massive strides under Clarke but if Celtic play as they did against the Jambos they should win.

Best value could be to go with both to score at 13-10 with sportingbet as Killie have netted in their previous eight outings. Over 2.5 goals is also a shout at 7-10 with Marathonbet.

Moussa Dembele returned to scoring form against Hearts and with the window shut (not in China) should be able to focus on doing the business for Celtic. He is 16-5 at Paddy Power to break the deadlock.

Kris Boyd netted at Aberdeen last week and would love to score against Celtic. He is 10-3 at Paddy Power to hit the target.

Aberdeen are beating all the teams below them and are 4-9 at Ladbrokes to beat Hamilton. They'll be on many accas after netting seven in two games.

Hearts should bounce back from losing at Parkhead by beating St Johnstone and are 5-6 at Sky Bet.

The Championship continues to stump punters and Morton's 3-0 win at Dundee United last week was one of many recent shocks.

That result had St Mirren fans cheering for their rivals and the Buddies are now 11 points clear at the top and no bigger than 3-10 at Paddy Power to lift the title.

Surprisingly Saints are evens at home to QoS today having already beaten them twice – 3-1 and 3-2. Saints and both to score pays 3-1 at William Hill.

United, out to 4-1 with McBookie to finish first, face a tough test at Inverness and I'll be on the home side draw no bet at 53-50 with Marathonbet.

Morton have taken seven points from three meetings with Dunfermline and have beaten them four out of five times at Cappielow.

They should follow their superb display at Tannadice with another three points and are a best 11-8 at McBookie as they battle for a play-off place.

Brechin are down and Dumbarton are facing a relegation play-off after Falkirk's upturn in fortunes. The Sons must beat the Hedgemen today and are 4-6 at Ladbrokes and McBookie.

Ayr are back at the top in League One and should stay there by taking care of Alloa but are no bigger than 1-2 with Marathonbet. The best policy is to go with goals and Ayr and over 2.5 pays 11-10 at Ladbrokes – four of the Honest Men's last six have gone over 4.5.

Talking of goals Albion Rovers' last eight have gone over 3.5 which is quite remarkable. They travel to Arbroath where they lost 4-1 earlier in the season and over 3.5 pays 6-4 at betfair.

Stranraer are 6-5 at Stan James to make it four wins in a row by beating East Fife at home.

In League Two the top two meet with Peterhead having a chance to overhaul visitors Montrose. The Blue Toon won 6-2 at Links Park in December and are 13-20 at McBookie to pick up the points.

I'd have liked that to be evens so consider Peterhead and over 2.5 goals at. Like Albion Rovers there games have been goal-laden with six of the last seven going over 4.5.

Clyde have picked up back-to-back wins against the top two and are 20-21 at McBookie to beat Edinburgh City at home.
