Liverpool fans react as winger Ryan Kent joins Rangers on a permanent deal

The promising wideman spent last season on loan with the Gers.

Liverpool have sold winger Ryan Kent to Rangers, where he spent last season on loan under Steven Gerrard, as confirmed by the Gers’ official website.

Kent has had a series of loan spells and found it tough to dislodge Liverpool’s first-choice front three so moving back to Ibrox – where he was adored last season – makes sense.

He said: “It has been incredibly tough over the summer but I am a mentally strong person. I knew if I kept myself correct something good would happen soon and I have been ticking over, keeping myself to myself and this has happened now and I’m over the moon.

“I got a feel for what it was to be a Rangers player, I felt like there was unfinished business from last year and I am hoping to put that right.”

As Liverpool confirmed the news on their official Twitter account, some Reds fans bemoaned the sale of Kent and the fact he didn’t get a proper shot at the first team.

Others felt that the club had done well to get a decent fee for a player who was never likely to become the kind of talent needed to force his way into this Champions League winning Reds side, so it’s fair to say there was a split.

In truth, it’s a move that makes sense for all parties, and Liverpool have been able to help out their former skipper Steven Gerrard – in charge at Ibrox – while balancing the books even further.
