Rangers winger Ryan Kent has been named as the most valuable player in Scotland by a leading sports science technology reports claim is used by sporting director Ross Wilson.
In data released by Transfer Room, Kent was said to have a valuation of around £12.7m amid reports of a reunion with ex-Ibrox gaffer Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.
Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos is second at £10m, with Rangers having six players in the top 10, with Joe Aribo (£7.9m, 4th), Ianis Hagi (£7.6m, 5th), James Tavernier (£6.7m, 7th) and Borna Barisic (£6.6m, 6th) all included.
Transfer Room come to their valuations by combining a range of different parameters including the player’s form, attributes, and contract status amongst many others.
According to the Daily Record, Ibrox sporting director Ross Wilson is a “high-profile fan” of the software, which is said to be used by SPFL clubs up and down the country.
Rangers’ Ryan Kent is the most valuable player in Scotland – but would Ross Wilson accept valuation?
Ryan Kent certainly deserves his status as the most valuable player in the country but some fans may well raise an eyebrow over the £12.7m price tag.
The tricky Gers star, 24, is a talismanic presence at times for Rangers and certainly on his day the ex-Liverpool star is the most potent and unique option the Gers have in their arsenal.
Signed for a £7m fee from Anfield in 2019 following a successful loan season at Ibrox, the winger has 18 months left on his contract and Rangers have some decisions to make over the next two windows.
But in the past Rangers have rebuffed interest from the likes of Premier League Leeds United with the Elland Road side said to have bid £10m for the player [BBC Sport].
If anyone – Steven Gerrard included – does want to make Ryan Kent their player then woudl Ross Wilson seriously consider a £12.7m bid?
Another Ibrox star has been linked to Villa Park with the incoming Ibrox manager said to be well aware of a challenging situation in his position with the Gers.
