Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister is confident that the Scottish giants will be able to bring Liverpool midfielder Ryan Kent back to Ibrox.

The Gers took the attacking force on loan last season and he made a huge impression in his time in Glasgow, with fellow players and supporters instantly warming to the youngster.

Kent went on to feature 43 times for Rangers in his campaign in Scotland, finding the net on six occasions, but also adding class to a midfield which needed some quality injected into it.

No deal was done for an immediate return to the Gers for the Liverpool ace however, which has left the club a little in limbo over whether they can take him back to Glasgow for next season.

Despite that, McAllister is still confident that Rangers will be about to seal another loan deal for the 22-year-old, but has urged supporters to be patient while negotiations take place to get the move over the line.

“It is ongoing, but the decisions at Liverpool will probably be later down the line.” The Scottish Sun quotes him as saying.

“Is he worth the wait? I would say so.

“He has got a rapport with the fans and there is no doubt he enjoyed his time here.

That’s on the pitch, in and around the training ground and the city as well — he enjoyed Glasgow.

“We have to be aware that Liverpool might receive bids, but you don’t know.

“If Ryan is to go back out on loan again, I think we’d be first in line.”

Rangers will face competition to get the midfielder back on loan however, as Premier League new boys Aston Villa and promotion chasers Leeds United are reportedly both interested in the Englishman.

There is a chance that if Liverpool do let him go out again, they will send him to an English club where the standard is higher, allowing his progression to take place quicker.
