Dumbarton manager Jim Duffy believes that Rangers livewire Ryan Kent would be a potential investment for Celtic.
The Liverpool player has impressed during his loan spell at Ibrox this season, featuring 31 times across all competitions.
Kent’s form has waned slighly in recent weeks as has most of his teammates’, but he’s managed five goals and nine assists so far.
His direct and exciting style of play has seen him become something of a fan favourite, with many hoping to see him make his loan move permanent.
For that to happen, Rangers will have to fork out ‘over £12 million’, which The Liverpool Echo have reported is the Reds’ asking price for the winger.
If there is any truth to that, then the Gers may have difficulty keeping him – but Duffy can see Kent making a controversial to bitter rivals Celtic.
He told Clyde1 Superscoreboard, quoted by The Scottish Sun: “He’s a Liverpool player and yes, he’s played for Rangers but he’s not a Rangers fan.
“I’m not sure he’s ready to come up and play for that kind of money [the reported £12 million].
“If it was somewhere around the £7m mark then it might be an investment for Celtic.”
This would be an extremely controversial move and one that Kent is highly unlikely to make.
The Oldham-born winger has often spoken very warmly about his time with the Light Blues and knows he has a good relationship with the fans.
He seems to have enjoyed his time at Rangers regardless of whether he will continue his stay at the club, and would surely not want to destroy his reputation.
There has been no interest reported in the player from Celtic, as they surely know too that a deal would be unlikely.
