Rangers: Ryan Kent was superb vs Celtic

Rangers’ unbeaten run continued on Sunday afternoon as they thrashed their Old Firm rivals 4-1 at Ibrox, meaning Steven Gerrard’s side are now just two games away from an invincible season.

Kemar Roofe gave the Light Blues the lead before Callum McGregor was sent off for the Hoops, although Odsonne Edouard fired in an equaliser minutes later.

However, Gerrard’s side were quick to respond through Alfredo Morelos, with the Colombian’s superb goal meaning that Rangers were 2-1 up at the break.

Roofe made it 3-1 shortly before the hour mark before Jermaine Defoe added the cherry on top of an excellent result with a late fourth.

Although Roofe will steal the limelight after his brace, Ryan Kent’s superb performance in an unusual attacking midfield role should not go without praise.

As per SofaScore, the former Liverpool youngster would earn an excellent 7.3/10 rating for his performance, with only Roofe (8.6), Borna Barisic (7.8) and Connor Goldson (7.4) earning higher.

During his time on the pitch, Kent would complete 39/41 of his passes, resulting in a superb 95% pass accuracy, which is far better than the 88.4% he has averaged in the Premiership so far this season.

He also completed a remarkable five key passes during the game, which is more than any other player, and is also a vast improvement on the 1.9 key passes he has averaged in the Scottish top-flight this season.

The 24-year-old also impressively completed four of six of his dribbles, whilst he won nine out of 18 duels during the game, which emphasises just how effective he was from both an attacking and a defensive point of view.

His assist for Roofe’s opener was the catalyst for Rangers’ comfortable win and whilst the former Leeds man was the beneficiary of excellent assists with his brace, he was arguably not as influential as the “sensational” Kent in the emphatic derby win.
