Glasgow Rangers have been heavily linked with another move for Ryan Kent, who starred while on loan at Ibrox last season – but the Gers no longer need the Liverpool attacker.
Steven Gerrard’s men no longer have to sign the Reds winger and I’ll give you my reasons why.
I like Kent, but he really does flatter to deceive on occasions. His end product is not always good enough for me. The word overrated comes to my mind.
He is selfish, plays with his head down and runs into trouble at times when he should pass the ball to a fellow Rangers player, who is better placed than he is.
Kent admittedly was a hard working member of last season’s side, but he is not tactically that good or as fast paced as someone like Jordan Jones can be.
Gerrard has put together a fast-moving Rangers midfield unit who are gelling well, without anybody holding on to the ball too long – then losing it at the wrong moment.
Rangers’ money be better spent on Leeds United’s top striker Kemar Roofe, who is a reported target, than paying the guarantee fee and minimum games contract that apply to bringing Kent back.
Roofe could be another Rangers bargain and score the required goals to have the Gers challenging for silverware this season.
If he had a few seasons left on his contract, Roofe would be a minimum of £10 million to buy, but with time running out, Leeds have to take less or lose him for free in the summer.
While Kent won over the Rangers fans last season without some excellent displays, the Ibrox outfit’s limited remaining transfer budget should go into other avenues of interest.
