Frustrated Liverpool Winger Now On Rangers’ Radar: A Good Move For Both The Player And Gerrard?

Was diving around lush green grass not so long ago but my keyboard is all I have now. An avid observer of detail in sports with a passion to make myself heard. Can find me playing on a field if not in front of my screen.

The mood in the Rangers’ camp is quite different to what it was at the end of the previous season. They have managed to land Steven Gerrard, one of the biggest names in world football, as a manager, but the former Liverpool midfielder has no real experience at this level and could easily struggle. But the way he handled the youth at Liverpool will give the Rangers fans plenty of confidence going into the new campaign.

Gerrard’s connections with the Merseyside club is expected to help the Scottish giants land some exciting stars from the academy at Anfield and the latest name doing the rounds is Ryan Kent.

Regarded as one of the brightest prospects at Liverpool at the moment, Kent spent 12 years at the club’s academy and was called up to the senior squad on a number of occasions, but never managed to get off the bench in the top flight.

He spent loan stints at Coventry City, Barnsley, Freiburg and more recently Bristol City and the common theme of these stints has been the lack of game time for the youngster. He managed just six starts in the Championship after joining Bristol City in January. That was after he made just a single Bundesliga start, on loan at Freiburg.

Capable of playing on either wing, the 21-year old is a gifted dribbler with a keen eye for goal. He has already broken into the England U21 squad and is highly rated in his country but it is now time for him to settle down at a place where he can play week in, week out and Rangers could also benefit from this move.

He is an excellent crosser, can create chances consistently and though needs to work on his strength in hold up play, is adept at creating havoc in the final third. He is a hard-working winger, happy to drop deep when needed but his pace and dribbling prowess make him an effective option on the wings.

Kent will now be fed up after four failed loan stints and will want to break into the first team at Anfield but Klopp believes that he still has a few things to work on, which he can learn under Steven Gerrard at Ibrox Stadium.

The Glasgow giants are set for a squad overhaul this summer and Kent is not the only Liverpool player extensively linked with a move to Scotland. Young Ovie Ejaria has already joined them on a loan deal and Kent should be excited with an opportunity to work with Gerrard, who is sure to get the best out of him.
