Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister has admitted that the Gers “keep asking the question” over keeping hold of Ryan Kent – but conceded it’s a decision for his parent club Liverpool.
The winger has been an important player for the Gers since signing on loan last summer and McAllister wants to keep him around longer.
The Gers number two said the 22-year-old is a “delight” to work with and claimed he has seen a “massive change” in him since his Ibrox arrival.
“Will he be here next season? It would be nice because we’ve seen the benefits of having him here but he’s Liverpool’s player,” McAllister said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“We keep asking the question but it’s up to them. They’re very much aware of what he’s doing up here.
“I’ve seen a massive change in him here. He’s a delight to work with.”
After returning from injury in December’s Old Firm win, Kent has really come on leaps and bounds.
The winger looks a much more dangerous player and is causing far more problems for teams.
With his loan deal up at the end of the season, keeping Kent around would be a huge boost for the Gers.
However, the better Kent performs at Ibrox the more likely a return to Anfield is as Liverpool look to get their worth from him.
If the Gers can keep a hold of him, it would be a fantastic bit of business for Steven Gerrard’s side.
