These Rangers fans are begging Steven Gerrard to make Ryan Kent deal permanent

Liverpool’s 22-year-old winger Ryan Kent suffered a pair of bitterly disappointing loan spells in the 2017/18 season, but he has put past failures behind him and used the learning curve to thrive at Rangers.

Steven Gerrard’s obvious connection with Liverpool facilitated the arrival of a handful of players from Merseyside in the summer.

Ovie Ejaria’s spell was unsuccessful and he has since moved on to a new challenge at Reading, but Kent has developed into a fine player at Ibrox and is beginning to become a darling of the Gers faithful.

The dynamic wide man was heavily involved in Rangers’ two opening goals in their 4-2 win at Aberdeen on Wednesday night, and the enormity of his impact has prompted supporters to beg for one thing: a permanent summer transfer.

Players of Kent’s quality are exactly what Gerrard needs to ensure Rangers end Celtic’s supremacy in the SPFL, so it’s no surprise that the fans are so intent on concluding a summer transfer.

If the reaction to his latest performance is anything to by, it’s fair to say Dave King would send the fans into hysteria by reaching an agreement with Liverpool over a permanent switch.
