Steven Gerrard revealed earlier this week that Rangers wouldn't be signing Ryan Kent again [The Record].
Liverpool loaned him to the Gers last summer, but Gerrard claims that the Reds' Director of Football Michael Edwards has personally told him that they're only entertaining permanent bids for the 22-year-old.
But another short-term move to Rangers make a lot of sense for all parties and the light Blues' boss needs to try again.
Of course the European champions would prefer get him off the books entirely and pick up a decent fee for him, but that's unlikely to happen this month.
That's because the transfer window in England is closed, so a permanent move away from Melwood isn't going to happen unless a foreign club comes in for him, which is unrealistic after his previous struggle at Freiburg in Germany.
If Liverpool don't make him available for loan, Kent is going to spend at least the next four months as an Under-23 player, which would be a total waste from his perspective. He even played for the Under-23s in Saturday's 4-0 drubbing by Tottenham.
He's far too good for youth football, having won Young Player of the Year in Scotland last season following his success under Gerrard at Rangers.
As soon as the window closed without Kent moving, another loan to Ibrox made the most sense unless there are foreign clubs willing to take what would be a massive gamble by paying his £7 million valuation [Goal.com].
