Ex-Rangers player Ian Durrant believes that his former side were right to splash the cash on Ryan Kent in the summer transfer window.
The Gers completed the £7million (BBC) signing of the attacker just before the window closed and he’s now at Ibrox on a permanent basis.
Kent spent the whole of last season on loan with the Scottish giants from Liverpool and he did enough to convince them to bring him back for a big transfer fee.
The left-winger made 43 appearances across all competitions during his loan spell with Rangers, scoring six goals and supplying nine assists in return.
He’s back to complete unfinished business and supporters got their wish after constant pressure for him to be re-signed.
Durrant is confident that Rangers have made a wise decision to bring Kent back and hailed the importance of the club’s manager Steven Gerrard.
“Of course he is,” Durrant replied when asked if Kent was worth the money on Youtube channel Football Daft.
“You’re getting a young kid who’s come from a great background at Liverpool, great upbringing who just wants to play football now.
“His main aim was to go play for Rangers and Steven Gerrard who has a big pull to bring players in.”
Kent’s signing is certainly a statement of intent by Rangers and they will hope they are rewarded with a player that can take them to silverware.
The 22-year-old showed some magic moments for Gerrard’s team last term and his task is now to do that on a more consistent basis.
He can be a nightmare for defences with his pace and skill, which is why he will inject some extra quality in the final third.
Striker Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe should love his service, so he should be expecting plenty of assists in an attack-minded team.
