Rangers are a rejuvenated force under Steven Gerrard who has reconstructed the squad with an array of new signings. The squad is big enough to compete for multiple silverware, but the gaffer is not done yet and has shared his thought on the potential return of Ryan Kent. This is despite the uncertainty over the availability of Liverpool’s prized asset.

Rangers are not blessed enough financially to meet the Reds’ valuation for the popular winger. Another loan move is what the Gers are aiming. Even though the supporters are getting impatient every passing day, Gerrard is ready to wait until the last second of the transfer window to get Kent back at Ibrox.

“Am I willing to wait until the last day of the window for Kent? I’m willing to wait until the very last second to get Ryan back here. He’s an exception because he was outstanding for us last year. I feel he’s ready to go again, with the confidence he should have from last season.”

Said the Rangers boss (as quoted by the Daily Record) who knows it’s all up to Jurgen Klopp as to whether he sees the Englishman in his first-team plans next season.

How Probabilistic It is For Rangers To Have Ryan Kent Back

The youngster might have scored only six times in the Bears’ colours, but the impact he had is enormous. The same has been reflected so far in Liverpool’s pre-season outings against Tranmere Rovers, Bradford City and Borussia Dortmund. Kent has been majestic down the left flank with his pace, power, cut insides and layoffs and his excellence has earned the attention of Klopp who might now keep hold of him beyond this summer.

Sadio Mane will join the group late, and the Reds are yet to rope in any major name despite being linked to a few. The next few fixtures would be crucial for the 22-year-old to stake a claim in the manager’s immediate plans. Rangers have no other option but to stay patient until the transfer deadline.

Do They Need Him Back?

Rangers have completed the transfer of Jordan Jones, Sheyi Ojo, Jake Hastie and Greg Stewart whereas the return of Jamie Murphy has bolstered them significantly down the wide. However, the club have ‘reluctantly but respectfully’ allowed Daniel Candeias to speak to Turkish outfit Gençlerbirliği S.K. over a potential summer switch.

Sheyi Ojo and Jake Hastie are likely to be deployed on the right flank in the Portuguese’s absence and Kent, therefore, would be restored down the left ahead of the other options available. Stewart is being utilised centrally, whereas Murphy would require more time to regain his rhythm following a season-long knee injury. Jones is pretty new to the setup and having Kent back in the team would increase the odds of reclaiming the Scottish crown dethroning their city rivals.
