"World-class" Rangers man shows he's top dog amid praise of Ibrox rival

Rangers winger Ryan Kent showed why he’s still the top dog at Ibrox with a “world-class” strike against Hibs which proved to be the eventual winner.

That’s the term used to describe the goal by Steven Gerrard who waxed lyrical about the match-winning contribution from the pacey wide-man.

Kent – a £7m signing from Liverpool last season after an initially successful loan spell – has shown a much greater level of consistency this season after an up-and-down campaign last year.

But even this season the tricky winger – who in my mind is undoubtedly the brightest talent in the division – has faced grumbles from sections of the Ibrox support.

After a blistering start to the season, Kent experienced a lull which Rangers boss Steven Gerrard encouraged him to play through and the player’s numbers speak for themselves.

In a season where Rangers have been crowned Champions, are threatening to go unbeaten and where the club has their eyes on League and Cup double, Kent has been a shining light.

The winger now has 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions this season from left-wing, a record which includes big goals in big moments for the team.

Kent, 24, is one of the most reliable members of the squad, a player who can be relied on to take the ball, keep gunning at defences, and take responsibility when the chips are down.

There’s been a lot of talk recently about ex-Aberdeen winger Scott Wright coming into the side, who quite rightly has earned the plaudits of supporters during his brief time at the club.

But in picking that ball up on the right, skipping past two defenders, and rattling the ball into the bottom corner, Ryan Kent showed fans who the top dog at Rangers is and summed up his influential, if often underappreciated, contribution this season.

Kent earned the plaudits for Rangers after the 2-1 win at Ibrox which means the Gers are four Scottish Premiership games away from an invincible season.
