Rangers winger Ryan Kent stood out again for his loan club – this time against Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.
The star, on a season-long loan at Ibrox from Liverpool, has really stepped up his game in recent weeks after a sluggish start.
He scooped the club’s most recent Player of the Month award and is playing some great stuff, showing brilliant pace and trickery down the left wing.
Kent was on the scoresheet against Hamilton on Sunday, and then caused all sorts of problems against the Russian side in Europe, particularly in the first half.
The youngster appears to be very settled in Scotland now, but does the fact that he is playing so well and consistently mean the situation is becoming a double-edged sword?
Liverpool are surely taking note of Kent’s progress
Kent is playing that well that Rangers may actually struggle to secure a permanent deal for him next summer.
Gers boss Steven Gerrard has gone on record as saying that he would like to keep the Oldham-born forward, but that will be difficult if he continues to shine week in week out.
Liverpool could well turn around and say that they would like to integrate him into first-team in 2019/20.
And if they don’t, then surely other clubs would be in for the talented 21-year-old.
Specifically clubs that would be able to trump Rangers in terms of a transfer fee and wage offering.
The fact that he has a platform like the Europa League means the spotlight will be on him.
Meanwhile Kent will be hoping to continue his great form against Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup semi-final on Sunday, which is the club’s biggest game of the season so far.
