TILBURG, NETHERLANDS - SEPTEMBER 24: Ryan Kent of Rangers celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round match between Willem II and Glasgow Rangers at Koning Willem II Stadium on September 24, 2020 in Tilburg, Netherlands.

Two assists and a goal. The continued rise of Ryan Kent into the sphere where he can maybe be labelled by some as world class is clear and unabated.

This is a kid who’s done it against top sides – Rapid, Celtic, Braga, Willem II. Over and over.

Kent’s performance tonight typified a player who is in the form of his life, and for whom £20M would be a complete insult – he is delivering at the highest levels and while we don’t necessarily expect an England call up any time soon, it’s clear that Kent wouldn’t be humiliated if he played for his country.

The talent we’re seeing on display is easily the best player Rangers have had since the likes of Naismith and Jelavic, but in a completely new era where players are worth dozens of millions of pounds.

Rangers saw Champions League and UEL goals from these two, but not season-after-season consistency from either – Kent has captured fans’ hearts and imaginations and is undisputedly the best player in the SPL these days.

We said some weeks ago that if we sold him, we’d find a replacement, like any player, and move on.

We have to retract that now, and commit that this kid, and he alone, is essential, critical to both 55 and indeed progress in Europe.

The latter isn’t quite as important, we were clear on that earlier, but for 55 we need him. We need Ryan Kent, because any new signing would take time to bed in and there’s no guarantee they’d settle as Kent has.

His performance tonight was exceptional, again, and was another of his AAA displays that we’ve grown to know and love, and there’s zero doubt Kent has completely taken Alfredo Morelos’ place as the darling of the Rangers support and our number one man in blue.

He’s exceptional, and while we doubt Jurgen Klopp thinks he made a mistake letting the kid go, there’s no denying Kent is capable of playing in the PL for many of the better clubs in that division.

But we hope we does his playing at Ibrox for many many years to come.
