FROM THE Firth of Forth to the Bay of Bengal.
It’s a road less traveled, but one that Jason Cummings has truly traveled since his acrimonious exit from Scottish football.
The former Hibs and Rangers striker left Dundee under a cloud of controversy after he was sent home from training following a surprise cameo at an Open Goal Live event in December 2021.
He then joined the Central Coast Mariners in Australia and never looked back.
He found form Down Under and was even called up to the Australian national team (which he qualified for through his mother) and represented the Socceroos at the World Cup in Qatar.
It all culminated in tears – happy ones – as he won the league with the Mariners and kissed his partner in the audience after further heroics in the A-League Grand Final.
The 28-year-old has since moved to India with his better half Hannah Doig and is now the highest-paid player in the Indian Super League.
He was accused of being unfit when he made his debut for new club Mohun Bagan Super Giant, but now that he is in West Bengal, he has scored an impressive eight goals in 13 games.
In between, he and Hannah enjoyed exploring what Australia and India had to offer, not to mention a few tourist hotspots in between.
The couple also visited Dubai and Thailand in their free time.
In Dubai, they explored the heights of the Aura Skypool, relaxed on Kyma Beach and checked out the DJ and party scenes.
After helping his side win the Durand Cup with a substitute appearance in the final, which ended in a 1-0 win over rivals East Bengal, Cummings traveled from Kolkata to Thailand and quoted The Hangover as describing the trophy success in style celebrated.
He and Hannah also spent time in the Phi Phi Islands and Bangkok during their Thailand vacation, where they watched monkeys being fed and took part in snorkeling.
They also enjoyed the famous, loud nightlife at Pa Tong Beach on the west coast of Phuket Island.
Cummings has not been named in the current Australian squad, although his former Hibs teammate Martin Boyle makes it for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Bangladesh and Palestine.
Boyle’s Hibs colleague Lewis Miller is also there alongside Hearts stars Kye Rowles, Keanu Baccus and St Mirren’s Ryan Strain, as well as former Celtic and Ross County midfielder Jackson Irvine.
