Rangers legend Derek Johnstone thinks it would be a “huge loss” to the Gers if they failed to bring Ryan Kent back to Ibrox this season – and believes the winger is worth his weight in gold to manager Steven Gerrard.
Kent’s loan deal ended at the end of the season but the Light Blues haven’t made any secret of their wish to bring him back for a second spell.

Barca Bear Johnstone insists Kent was a “star” for Gerrard’s side last season and hopes to see him in blue again soon.
“If Ryan doesn’t sign for Rangers this summer, it would be a huge loss to the team,”
Johnstone told the Evening Times.
“He was a star for us last season and that is why he was voted the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year.
“Players like him, that run with the ball at their feet, that take on players and that create chances and score goals, always get the fans excited and they are worth their weight in gold.”

Rangers have reiterated their desire to bring Kent to Ibrox after landing his Liverpool team-mate Sheyi Ojo on loan but may have to wait until late in the summer.

The winger really grew into his place in the team and was an integral player towards the end of the season as the Gers put together a run of impressive results.
While it would be good to get him back, Gerrard has more than enough options available should Liverpool decide to keep hold of the winger or sell him to the highest bidder.
