If ever one player did NOT live up to the challenges placed upon him yesterday, it was Ryan Kent, who is, as Neil McCann rightly says, ‘taking a battering’ today.

The winger has completely vanished the past 12 months, and it wasn’t for his cracking matches v Dortmund, Ryan Kent would have been a literal entirely empty jersey pretty much since Giovanni van Bronckhorst took over.

He was the one many laid a marker to – that he had a big night at Ibrox ahead of him, in front of his home fans, up against the side who reckoned he wasn’t very good and sold him – he was to prove Jurgen Klopp wrong, destroy his deeply weakened defence and show the world his qualities on the biggest stage there is.

What a complete flop he was, yet again, and we have to admit we’re kind of done with him now.

Kent had so, so much talent, but he’s absolutely lost it this past 12 months, ever since our new manager took the helm. Is it related? Possibly – he was signed by Steven Gerrard and appears to have suffered as much as anyone his exit.

And there was the massive miss at the end of Seville which appears to have killed him as well, a miss he could have won the UEL with.

But last night really was a disappearing act – one cut in from the left, and wild shot over the bar was all Kent really had to contribute to a match which was made for him to shine in. A lack of desire, a lack of runs, a lack of any kind of guts at all.

We slaughtered Backpass Barisic for his negative passing, taking the safe option, but Kent was NOT helping him at all, and made next-to-no runs for him to put the ball forward to. By comparison, as absolutely rubbish as Fashion Sakala was, at least he made the runs even if he couldn’t control the balls or the balls themselves were wildly off target.

Kent didn’t even do that.

His Rangers race is run, and he needs to move on now. He is welcome to sign a precontract in January and leave Rangers, he’s as empty a jersey now as Glen Kamara is.

We are done completely with Ryan Kent, and if he starts again, we will struggle to back him any more given he didn’t back us or himself last night.

  1. ive said it for long enough if morelos and kent dont want to stay stick them with the b team till they leave .because any fully committed player with half the ability is better than those 2 at the moment

  2. McGregor (age not ability), Tavernier, Barisic, Davis, Morelos, Kamara, McLaughlin and Hellander should all be surplus to requirements and off-loaded ASAP. While we’re at it we might as well send Tillman and Sands back to where they came from. If our board are more concerned about getting returns from their investment then we should rebuild from scratch with what’s left and our youth players. We can find better players than those I mentioned on the free market.

    • Time for change 😴 this team bores you never been a fan gio am afraid 2 say he’s not got a scooby doo ! Fitness levels are away bits certain players have big ideas on wat ther worth ! Sling the whole idea of being superstars NONE O THEM IS ! Get youth brought b4 we lose them all ! Send the rest ther P45 in the post

  3. 100%agree he’s not interested anymore quicker ginormous gets rid the better we,ll be we need players who want to be be here and play for the club not passengers and we’ve a few of them now

  4. Show him the exit door waste of talent and throughing good money down the drain by paying his wages , take the and free up his wages at least

    • The whole team is done the manager couldnt pik a grape from a vine…we are out our depth in Europe…and a few are only there to collect there wages domestically….i personally would remove Van Btonkhorst and our so called chief scout…the deal maker as they say….and get someone in that motivate…cause that team is done….

  5. We win as a team and we lose as a team it waznt just one person that failed on Wednesday ay the whole team did back your team or get out of ibrox

  6. This rangers team is boaring the shit out of me our play is too slow one striker up front dose not work horseshoe football nothing through the middle Kent and morelos need to go if the fans can c what’s happening and gio can’t then he has to go too
