Rangers legend Ronald de Boer has admitted that he was impressed by Ryan Kent’s performance in last month’s Old Firm win.
The winger returned from injury in the 1-0 win and put Celtic to the sword with his direct style.
The win was Rangers’ first in the league against their bitter rivals since 2012.
De Boer revealed that Kent’s movement and pace were “big assets” and admitted that it was good to see the Gers back where they belong.
“I was very impressed with Rangers in the Old Firm game. They were very pumped up, but I thought they played the ball around well,” the
Dutchman told the Scottish Sun.
“I liked Ryan Kent a lot, he is a very good player. I hadn’t seen him before, and I looked up that he is on loan from Liverpool.
“His movement, skill on the ball and pace were all big assets. It’s good Rangers are back where they belong and can give Celtic a challenge.”
Kent has been impressive since signing on loan from Liverpool in the summer.
The 22-year-old has quickly made himself a big favourite with fans thanks to his performances.
The winger has scored three times and contributed three assists in 23 appearances for the Light Blues.
He’s likely to be involved on Friday when the Gers travel to face Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Cup.
Gers’ director of football Mark Allen has admitted the Gers would look at signing the winger permanently.
Whether Liverpool will be willing to do a deal remains to be seen but it would be a popular move for Gers fans.
