Steven Gerrard made as many as 15 signings in the summer, and most of them are doing well. One, in particular, has stood out and that is Liverpool winger Ryan Kent who has slowly gone on to become one of the fan favourites at the Ibrox. He started slow and had to compete for his place with Jamie Murphy down the left flank.

However, a season-long injury to Murphy gave Kent a clear path to the first team, and the Liverpool winger grabbed that opportunity with both hands. His direct playing style is causing defenders a lot of problems, and it seems clear that he wants to stay at Rangers after the loan spell.

Recently the winger talked about the Rangers fans and how he feels great playing for them. The Englishman was quoted as saying,”The fans have been incredible throughout my time here so far. Hopefully, we can keep pushing on and I can keep enjoying my football.

“They have a big part to play in our performances. You can see that in the results we’ve had recently, especially for me when I pick the ball up and can hear the fans behind me. That gives me great confidence. They’re the best fans in the world and you can see that in the atmosphere in each game.”

It’s clear that the winger is loving the opportunity of playing regularly in front of a huge crowd every week. Kent has been unable to break into Liverpool’s team given the talent the Reds have currently and one doesn’t see him getting close to the first team any time soon. Gerrard has already expressed his desire to sign him and Kent has also given positive indications before.

What makes the young winger special is his ability to take on defenders and his blistering pace. His work ethic is also terrific as he presses high up on the pitch and is willing to get dirty by tracking back when the opposition is attacking. However, he needs to add a bit of composure and better decision making to his game. That kind of thing comes with playing regularly and he is going to get that at Ibrox if he stays after the loan spell. Liverpool also shouldn’t mind selling him at the right price. However, it remains to be seen what that price would be as Kent is 21-year-old and has definitely proven himself in Scotland in a short while.

Having Gerrard as a negotiator would help the Gers to get a good deal and if the gaffer wants him, then one can expect the club to go all out and sign him. Kent can be an option for years to come down the wings at Ibrox if the club manages to sign him permanently after the summer.
