A national red top has made the claim that Ryan Kent has outright rejected a new Rangers deal and will leave for free next year.

The winger, off the back of an improved display at Hearts yesterday, was still being generally criticised by most supporters, including Ally McCoist we must say, for having an apparently underwhelming match, but reports today have made the allegation that Kent has said a final no to Rangers and will move on to pastures new in 2023.

This would have been a surprise to us some months ago with the information we had on him, but things have clearly changed for Kent, and his refusal to sign a new deal (he’s not addressed a word on it to the media) which has been on the table to him for a long time now is becoming pretty clear.

Of course, many will point to Connor Goldson’s about-turn, but he’d had that contract offer since May 2020 and only finally signed it two years later, so anyone making a claim that he was always going to stay is patently incorrect.

But Kent is different – he has time on his side, and it appears he’s been seduced by the exits of Joe Aribo, Nathan Patterson and Calvin Bassey and wants to take a shot at the PL himself before it’s too late.

It appears the lure of the Champions League isn’t as strong as the lure of the PL and Kent is indeed free to talk to clubs in January.

The sad thing for Rangers is the club appears, at this point, vulnerable to losing out on the £20M escape clause in his contract, not to mention the £7.5M outlay shelled out on him in the first place.

But them’s the breaks we suppose, and as a club we too have massively benefited from lucrative free agents over the years, John Lundstram and Ryan Jack being two such, not to mention McGregor, Arfield and Davis.

So we may lose out this time.

  1. The goal Kent scored in Europe a few years ago paid back the 7.5M we paid Liverpool for him

    If and when he does leave us, he goes with my best wishes and no grudges

  2. It’s total disrespect from both him and Morelos I’d drop both I wish we hadn’t given that twat Goldson a deal either. We are Rangers . If they treat us like shit they should get the same . We need to build for the future without both now , play Matondo more, dare I say it play Wright and Lowry, McCann . It’s painful given the outlay and how we have raised thier stock but definitely drop them and put them in their place asap. Poor.

  3. Kent can do one in January for all I care. The guy is a dud, a £7.5m flop and any PL sides seriously scouting for a new winger to improve what they already have surely can’t have seen anything from Kent beside some sparse quality moments in the Europa League last season. If you think Kent is the answer to our left sided forward options then you need your head examined. He had dazzled us with some great moments I won’t deny but spread them out over his Rangers career and he hasn’t really.done that much for us. How many times honestly have you sat up and paid attention because Kent has collected the ball out wide only to watch him give the ball away, overrun it, shoot wide or run into his opponent? You win some, you lose some in the transfer market and Kent hasn’t remotely justified his fee. Onwards and upwards.

  4. 7.5 million plus at least that in wages again ….15 million ? what a waste of money for the measly return in goals and commitment .
    I think rangers will learn from this and it will be a long time before we invest such an amount in a “promising reserve player ” again .

  5. Paying Kent top dollar doesnt make sense anymore. The guy is mid 20s and should be in his pomp but has regressed in the last year. Look at his stats compared to Abada and Jota and you will see he is way behind what we require. Take what we can get in January and source a winger with real drive, threat and most of all, ability to finish!
