Ryan Kent has settled in well at the club, and the Liverpool loanee played a massive role in the Old Firm derby where he beautifully set up the goal for Ryan Jack. Rangers missed him big time when he was unavailable and maybe having Kent in the last Europa League game could have propelled the Gers into the knockout stage as well.

It is clear that Kent has been one of the best signings of the summer and Rangers should want to pull off a permanent deal for him. Latest reports from the Scotsman conveys that the winger is ready to commit his long-term future at Ibrox if Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sanctions a sale in the summer.

The player himself opened about moving to Rangers permanently and was quoted as saying,”It’s something I’m considering. It’s a chat Rangers are going to have to have with Liverpool because I still have three years left on my contract there. So it’s a bit out of my hands. The honest answer is I don’t know what my future holds. That’s something Jurgen Klopp will have to answer.”

With the heights Liverpool have touched in the last year and a half, we don’t really see Kent making it big at the Merseyside club even though he has his contract at Anfield until 2022. Gerrard too has expressed (The Scotsman) his desire earlier to sign him permanently and it all comes down to what Klopp and Liverpool think about the winger.

Given that Kent is 22 and this is just his first season in Scotland, he can reach even greater heights in the future if he keeps on working hard. The Englishman seems to relish the challenge and his hunger and desire to play for the Gers can be seen on the pitch. In tough situations, the winger demands the ball on his feet, and his pace and skills often make the difference in the attacking third. 

When Kent was unavailable in the past two months, Rangers failed to win a few games even though they dominated the tie in terms of possession. They didn’t have that cutting edge to open up defences, and Kent can be a significant difference maker as seen in the clash against Celtic. To go with his skills, the Englishman also displays excellent work rate and his pressing from the front is also a delight to watch.

There is no doubt that Kent can go on to be a major long-term success for the Light Blues and Gerrard should try everything in his means to land him permanently now that the player himself seems to be relishing the opportunity to turn out at a packed Ibrox week in week out.
