Rangers Seal The Deal For 21 Y/O Liverpool Winger On Loan: What Will He Bring to Gerrard’s Squad?

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.

Rangers got past Shkupi in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League earlier this week but the fact that they failed to score a single goal away from home, will continue to haunt the manager Steven Gerrard. The former Liverpool midfielder has just two weeks left before the start of the league campaign and this might see the club make a few more signings in the next fortnight.

Gerrard has already signed a couple of players for Rangers from Liverpool. Ovie Ejaria has joined the Gers on a season-long loan while Jon Flanagan came in as a free agent. And Rangers, it seems, have sealed the deal for yet another Liverpool youngster in Ryan Kent as the player joins the Scottish giants on a season long loan.

The Oldham born winger joined Liverpool in 2003 as a kid and has spent loan stints out at Coventry City and Barnsley before the start of the last season. He was sent to Freiburg last summer but lack of playing time saw him return to England in January. However, Jurgen Klopp had no place in his first team for Kent and Bristol City gave him yet another chance to impress on loan.

Kent spent the second half of the season at Ashton Gate, making 10 league appearances, but he failed to find the back of the net and has not impressed Klopp enough to find a first-team spot for him.

At just 21, Kent is a matured footballer, with a great understanding of the game. He is quick and technically gifted, is calm and composed in possession and is a potential star for the Reds. He has already worked with Gerrard, who was with the academy at Liverpool previously and this move to Rangers will only help him establish himself as a star at the highest level.

Kent was a part of the pre-season friendlies that Liverpool have arranged before they jet off to the United States and Kent played in all three games, failing to make a real impact. But the Rangers manager knows him pretty well and is sure to give him the right platform to launch his career. To add to it, playing alongside Ejaria, Kent is certainly to make an impact on the first team at Ibrox.

On a loan, he can be a real asset for the Rangers and can be a match winner for the club but at his age, he will take time to settle in and will not walk into the first team any time soon. But for his progress, this move is seemed to suit him best.
