Rangers have released an exciting image of Ryan Kent in training after it was confirmed that the winger is back available for Thursday’s Europa League clash against Brondby.
Kent, who scored 13 goals and notched 15 assists across all competitions last season, hasn’t played since mid-September.
He picked up a hamstring injury in a 2-0 defeat to Lyon and has since missed ten matches.
However, he was recently able to rejoin the first-team group and on Wednesday morning, Steven Gerrard confirmed that he was set to travel to Denmark for what is effectively a must-win game for the Gers.
“Ryan Kent trained fully with the group yesterday,” said the manager [RangersTV]. “He came through it and looked pretty good, so he’ll travel with us, assuming he comes through this morning’s session.”
In the evening, the club released a training gallery and a picture of Kent being put through his paces was front and centre, much to the delight of some fans.
@ryankent welcome back 😍👏

Kent could then also be spotted linking up with captain James Tavernier during a training drill in footage released by the club later in the evening [RangersTV].
It’s unlikely that the 24-year-old will be ready to start against the Danish champions but he could certainly play a role off the bench.
It’s a major boost to have such a key player back in the squad, with Rangers missing his pace and trickery during his lengthy spell on the sidelines.
