Hopes were high that Ryan Kent would make a big impression for Rangers when he joined them on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool during the summer, and the 22-year-old hasn’t disappointed in general.
The winger quickly established himself as a key player for the Scottish Premiership giants under the tutelage of Steven Gerrard, and he has scored three goals and provided a further two assists in 22 appearances in all competitions thus far.
While those tallies might not be the best, it doesn’t mean that the wide man hasn’t made a big impact for the Glasgow club in the final third in terms of his general play, and his manager would have been concerned when the tricky attacker picked up a hamstring injury that has kept him on the sidelines for their previous two fixtures.
However, a three-goal haul against Spartak Moscow in the Europa League was subsequently followed with seven goals against Motherwell last time out, and big contributions in those matches from wingers Eros Grezda, Daniel Candeias and Glenn Middleton have certainly given Gerrard something to think about when Kent eventually makes his return – a date that the 38-year-old is unsure of right now.
We want Rangers fans to vote on our poll below to tell us whether they think the 22-year-old should reclaim his spot in the starting XI straight away when he is 100% fit, or whether he needs to battle to overcome the likes of Grezda and Candeias again given they are beginning to deliver.
