Two week break should have Rangers star Kent ready to destroy Hamilton

Rangers winger Ryan Kent should be fresh and raring to go against Hamilton come Sunday.

There was great excitement amongst the Gers fanbase when the 23-year-old signed a permanent deal with the club on Deadline Day. 

Yet, since then, injury has restricted his impact.

A pulled hamstring ensured his second debut was cut short and left him on the sidelines for around a month. Since then, he’s shown flashes of what he’s capable of, especially in the League Cup semi-final win over Hearts.

Yet, as we entered the international break, his game time was still being carefully managed.

Now, after two further weeks of building up strength and fitness, he should be fully fit and ready to wreak havoc.

The Gers have an extremely tough run of fixtures ahead of them, and Kent has the kind of X-factor that will be needed to break down stubborn opposition defences.

Hamilton are the lowest calibre opposition Rangers will face for some time, but they’ll be up for the scrap on their artificial surface on Sunday.

Kent scored there in a 4-1 victory last season, with what was his third of six goals for the campaign. He’ll be hoping to register a much bigger tally this around and given that he’s yet to get off the mark, he’ll be extra eager to contribute.

It’s been a stop-start couple of months since his return, but now it’s time to put the foot down. Rangers need an on fire Ryan Kent over the next period and a destructive performance against Accies would be a good way to begin.
