Former Liverpool winger Kent is fully fit now and has been playing for the Gers, and the 23-year-old is likely to start for Steven Gerrard’s side against the Hoops.

Ahead of the match, former Celtic player Wilson has identified Kent as the danger-man for Rangers against the Hoops.

 

Former Manchester United midfielder Michael Stewart, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport, has also suggested that Kent will be key for Rangers if they are to win against Celtic.

Wilson wrote about Kent in The Scottish Sun: “He had a slow start but I think everybody can see his qualities when he plays. I think he’ll be the danger man against Celtic, just like he was last season.”

Stewart wrote about Kent in The Scottish Sun: “Kent will play out-to-in or in-to-out in a bit of a floating role. But he gives Rangers an X-factor. You could see before that he had the ability, no doubt about it.

But he was getting to a stage where you were starting to ask where the end product was. Now he’s doing it. He is adding goals and assists on a more consistent level. And that’s huge.”
