Ryan Kent could return for Rangers in two weeks, according to Steven Gerrard. Rangers boss Gerrard confirmed that Kent’s hamstring injury could be cleared up in a fortnight, as reported by the club’s official Twitter page.
Fan favourite Kent rejoined Rangers on deadline day from Liverpool. He penned a permanent deal after excelling on loan at Ibrox last season. But Rangers fans have not seen the best of him yet.
The 22-year-old is out with a hamstring injury and Gerrard warned that these take time to heal. But he added that Kent is now walking around without pain and he could make his comeback in two weeks.
Ahead of the clash with Feyenoord, Gerrard told a press conference: “Ryan Kent is now pain-free walking around, I still think it will be a couple of weeks as you need to be careful with hamstring injuries.”
With Jordan Jones and Greg Stewart both out, Rangers need Kent back more than ever. The English winger is the exciting spark that Gerrard’s team lacked in the Old Firm derby and he could take them to new heights.
But Gerrard is right to err on the side of caution and make sure he does not rush Kent back. He is too important a player to lose for a longer period of time. However, Rangers fans can start to get excited about his return.
