Rangers fans line up to praise Ryan Kent after Dundee goal

Ryan Kent’s performance against Dundee has earned rave reviews from the supporters.

Rangers ran out impressive 4-0 winners against Neil McCann’s struggling Dundee outfit. Goals from Lassana Coulibaly, Kent, James Tavernier, and Glenn Middleton sealed a terrific win for Steven Gerrard’s Gers.

Therefore, Rangers jump back up to fourth place and back to within two points of Celtic. They are, however, seven points behind Hearts who top the Premiership after week five.

There were so many start performers against Dundee, but fans took time out to praise Kent for his stunning display.

The on-loan Liverpool wide-man scored his first goal for the club, and therefore made sure Rangers got back to winning ways.

Supporters have since been queuing up on Twitter to praise the left-winger. Below we take a look at the best of the reaction:

“Shades of Durrant”

Supporters seem to agree strongly that Kent has been threatening this kind of performance for a while. The youngster has been threatening to do damage with his pace and directness all season, but against Dundee his endeavour finally brought reward.

The challenge for him now, however, is to keep it up on a consistent basis. So often wingers struggle to replicate good displays against better quality of opposition. Dundee are rooted to the bottom of the table, and therefore weren’t expected to put up much of a challenge.

With some big games coming up against Villarreal, St Johnstone, and Hearts in the coming weeks, Kent will be tested to a greater extent.

Glenn Middleton also appears to be breathing right down his neck after netting against the Dees himself. Middleton is another flair player who’ll be looking to bag more game-time this season. Therefore, it’s even more important that Kent keeps up his startling early displays.

A trip to El Madrigal now awaits, and Kent has to be ready for the toughest challenge of his career.
