Has key Rangers man dramatically changed his mind?


In a further curiosity to the developing story (and increasing confusion) over Ryan Kent and his alleged value, his loan manager Steven Gerrard’s curious comments over Kent’s own intentions have really muddied the waters over the situation.

Remember, Ryan Kent has gone on record as saying, in the past, that he wants to remain at Ibrox, and that that is his first choice.

But strangely Gerrard made no reference to that and instead only said that the player, his club and his representation ‘know’ Rangers wish to keep him but that the decision is out of our hands.

It’s a very, very odd development when the player already said he wanted to stay and suggests he no longer does. Especially given Gerrard’s further confirmation the call to keep Kent is not in Rangers’ hands – which may well imply it’s down to the player.

It all adds up to a strange way of putting it, rather than saying the player has ‘suggested’ he might want to remain and we’ll see if we can do something. Instead it appears interest from richer sides willing to shell out the asking price has turned Kent’s head and likely that of Liverpool too.

We hope this doesn’t turn into some ugly and gratuitous transfer saga and it is resolved one way or the other ASAP.

  1. Honestly, he's not worth more than £ or 2 million at a push. Reminds me of Barry McKay. We have enough wingers. We are suposedly getting Jake Hastie, Glenn Middleton playes on the left aswell and have Jamie Murphy to come back. So what would be the plan? Kent starting with Murphy as backup and keep Middleton and Hastie in the unders and ruin them? Middleton is class, needs work but firmly believe he is better than Kent and the kid has been totally ditched...not even in the squad for celtic game...and dont get me started on McCrorie either...kid shoyld be starting against Septic but he wont

  2. If Kent was our player then I doubt there would be any interest in him at any price. He just hasn't been consistent enough to merit a valuation anywhere near £7m. We should let him go back to Liverpool and strengthen other areas of the team.
