Rangers’ marquee summer signing Ryan Kent made his second debut for the Gers this afternoon against Livingston – but it was to end in frustration for the Ibrox star as he was forced off through injury after 40 minutes.

Kent was one of four changes to the starting XI for the Ibrox clash and started brightly as he put the visitors’ defence under pressure in search of the opening goal.

With five minutes remaining until the break, Kent’s afternoon came to a premature end as he chased Scott Arfield’s pass before pulling up with an apparent hamstring injury.

After only completing his £7million to Ibrox on deadline day, Kent looked distraught as he made his way off the pitch – although he didn’t appear to be in too much pain so, hopefully, he’s just been over-cautious.

Steven Gerrard’s side face Feyenoord on Thursday in the Europa League as they head into a hectic run of games and losing Kent for any prolonged spell would be a big loss for Rangers.

Gers fans on Twitter were just as gutted as the winger to see him make his way off – although one or two think Gerrard should take some criticism for his “very naive” decision to start Kent.
