Rangers target

Rangers manager Gerrard has told The Scottish Sun that he wants to bring Kent back to Ibrox for the 2019-20 campaign.

The Glasgow giants will have to do a loan deal, while Liverpool want £12 million as transfer fee for the winger, according to The Liverpool Echo.

Stopping Celtic

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership title for the past eight seasons, but Hoops and Liverpool legend Dalglish believes that Kent can be a major player for Rangers in their attempt to stop the Bhoys from making it nine in a row in 2019-20.

Dalglish wrote in The Sunday Post (print edition, Post Match, July 14, 2019): “It’s only logical that Rangers want to bring Ryan Kent back to the club.

"He is a fine young player, and would be a major asset in their quest to stop Celtic winning nine league titles in a row.”
