Ibrox Noise was amused by the negative response to a recent straw poll we carried out. Following the Aberdeen win, we made a claim that Ryan Kent would have been an England international by now if he was playing in the PL.
The replies, 90%, scoffed at this and missed the point entirely – all of the rejections suggested he’s not consistent enough in the league and only shines at Europa level.
Which, of course, was exactly our point.
Following our latest demolition of a big Euro side, this time Red Star, Kent was once again his very own star as the winger took their back line apart with ease, showing once more just how good he is and is capable of being.
The dissent at the previous post seemed to reduce…
We were genuinely surprised how many fans didn’t grasp what we were saying – IF Kent was a PL player, he would have raised his game regularly, as he does UEL style, and surely would be a shoe in to be an international.
We’re not saying he’d be first pick, albeit who could have guessed at Van Dijk’s future when he was at Celtic, but he would have a cap or two.
He is a top class winger, who is dragged down weekly by the hammer throwers in the SPL.
Jurgen Klopp completely screwed up with Kent, treating him poorly, but we can see the lad realising his potential and he’s quite simply too good for the SPL.
When he plays in the UEL, we see just how good he actually is – he proved it yet again, as if he needs to, v the Serbs.
But it seems in the eyes of many Rangers fans, no matter what Kent does, like Tavernier, he’ll never be given the credit he deserves.
He’s a top winger, and he could be even better. But he’ll never realise his total destiny as long as he’s in the SPL.
