Turkish journalist Yağız Sabuncuoğlu has hinted that Fenerbahçe winger Ryan Kent is on his way back to Rangers on loan, after revealing the ex-Ibrox attacker is being tracked by two clubs, one of which is in Scotland.
The 27-year-old has not worked out in Turkey at all, falling out with his manager who simply isn’t interested in using him, and we have to admit we have no idea why the Istanbul giants made a move for the winger or why he chose the Super Lig as a destination.
And after Sabuncuoğlu confirmed one club in Scotland and one in England are tracking his situation, unless Aberdeen or Hearts are randomly trying to sign Kent on loan, we can only deduce Rangers are interested in taking him back.
See, most Rangers supporters can’t stand Kent – Ibrox Noise is notably one group who think the opposite, but the majority can’t stand him and that’s a major obstacle to any move to re-signing him.
But Rangers badly lack width and Philippe Clement is very interested in trying to build those flanks back up following The Mick’s absolute ruination of Rangers’ wide men – he could very much be interested in Kent because do recall Kent’s stunner v Antwerp would have got Clement’s attention, manager of Brugge at the time.
Rangers are well-known in Belgium, and Clement certainly knew about us before becoming our manager, with Kent’s performances sticking out like a sore thumb in the Europa League so there’s every chance our manager is interested in giving him a go on loan.
Kent has everything to prove again, but Rangers have a huge manager now who could get the very best from a player who has all the talent, but just lost his way.
Maybe one to watch.
