Ally McCoist says Rangers should only sell Ryan Kent for £25-30m
Former Rangers striker, Ally McCoist, has said it is imperative that the Gers keep hold of Ryan Kent this summer, amid reports of Premier League interest.
Kent has been instrumental for Rangers in dethroning Celtic in Scotland. He’s his 12 goals and registered a further 14 assists this term, as Steven Gerrard’s men have romped to the Scottish title.
And McCoist, speaking to BT Sport yesterday, believes Kent’s value is now between the £25-30m mark and that he is ‘vital’ for Rangers.
“It might happen, if they get an unbelieveable offer. We understand that,” McCoist said.
“He’s worth 25 to 30m right now, Ryan Kent. You need Ryan Kent. These are the players you need to unlock defences. He sees a pass, he goes by somebody, he commits people. He is absolutely vital to Rangers.”
Kent has certainly seen his reputation blossom since making the move north of the border. After a number of frustrating loan spells while at Liverpool, the winger has found his feet and has shone under Gerrard.
Leeds are said to be keen on signing Kent this summer, while others have also taken note both in the PL and across Europe.
TBR View: McCoist is right, Kent is vital to Rangers and shouldn’t be sold
As usual, McCoist has it spot on here when it comes to Ryan Kent and Rangers. They simply cannot afford for him to leave. He’s that good.
The word ‘vital’ was used by McCoist and he’s bang on in all honesty. Kent’s impact on this team is massive and that 25-30m price tag McCoist mentions is not far-fetched.
Gerrard will be desperate to keep hold of Kent, especially with European football at the highest level back on the agenda.
