Ryan Kent has made a massive difference to Glasgow Rangers in many games, but similar to many wingers, he can be frustrating at times.
You know he has the talent and ability to go past most of the right-backs in the SPFL, but the Gers loanee has developed a bad habit of coming inside too often.
Another of Kent’s bad habits is trying to overdo things on occasions. It is tremendous that he has the confidence in attempting to gild the lily.
The Rangers man over embellishes some of his moves and can run into trouble, instead of passing quicker. But, he is a good player to watch and the Gers fans love him.
Is Kent ready to beak into Jurgen Klopp’s first team at Liverpool?
I’m sorry to say, that until he learns more about what is required for the Reds and moves the ball about quicker – he won’t be picked regularly.
Liverpool switch the ball about far better than Rangers. Of course, they have a team full of star players who are all at the top of their game.
Undeniably, Rangers played their best football this season when two of their best players – Alfredo Morelos and Kent – were out through suspension.
The ball was zipped around quicker with Steve Davis, Glen Kamara, Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield moving the ball swiftly, to completely dominate the matches.
Kent probably knows himself that it would be a big ask for him to break into the Liverpool first team. Especially when they are currently so successful and will buy expensive stars.
He is still only 22 and seems quite keen to stay at Rangers for another season, but the Anfield club would probably want top bucks if forced to sell him.
The best solution for Kent, Liverpool and Rangers would be another one-year loan deal at Ibrox. He is settled and happy in Glasgow.
“I came up here to win trophies and that’s a department we’ve failed in this season. So it would be nice to come back and win silverware,” Kent told the Daily Record.
“The size of the club brings out the best in me. The club is back on the right track, especially with the manager they have. He has been excellent for me.
“I want to finish the campaign strongly. I’ll have plenty of time to think about the other stuff and discuss it with my representatives in the summer.”
Kent’s statement is clear, and will please Rangers and their hordes of fans. The chances are high that this will be the best outcome for everybody.
Liverpool should not be in a rush to take him back, but if he continues to shine and learn more at Rangers, the season after would be better for all.
