Kris Boyd has suggested to Sky Sports that Liverpool should send Ryan Kent back to Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox club Glasgow Rangers
Kent spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Scottish Premiership club Rangers from Premier League outfit Liverpool.
The winger played well for Gerrard’s team, and made 25 starts and two substitute appearances in the Scottish Premiership for Rangers, scoring six goals in the process, according to WhoScored.
According to Sky Sports, Kent also provided nine assists for the Gers during his loan spell at Ibrox this season.
According to The Daily Record, Leeds United and Rangers are interested in signing the 22-year-old winger in the summer transfer window.
Aston Villa, who have won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League, are also reported to want the former England Under-20 international winger.
Former Rangers striker Boyd, 35, has praised Kent, and he believes that if Liverpool have long-term plans for the 22-year-old winger, then they should send him back to Rangers.
Boyd told Sky Sports: “If Ryan Kent is going to be a Liverpool player, up here is perfect for him to learn the way that Liverpool play because Rangers are doing the same thing.
“In terms of their possession – they’re always on the front foot, they want to get their wingers on the ball to create chances and score goals. There’s no doubt Ryan Kent excelled in that environment last year. Whether he can do it again next year is a different question.
“But I think he’s a talented boy who will go far in the game and I think to learn the game, Rangers is the perfect environment for him. If he’s going to be a success at Liverpool I think he’d be better staying at Rangers rather than going to a team that’s at the bottom of the Premier League or a team in the Championship.”
