Glasgow Rangers will be doing all they can to hold on to Ryan Kent this summer.
Newly-promoted Premier League side Leeds United are interested in the 23-year-old winger – the Whites have already had a £10m bid rejected for the Oldham-born man, whilst the Yorkshire side are said to be considering another £15m approach for the former Liverpool ace.
Should Kent depart Ibrox this summer, though, former Gers man Kevin Kyle believes that the 54-time Scottish champions should target Hibernian’s Martin Boyle. He has made 193 appearances for Hibs, scoring 36 goals and creating as many, whilst he has two goals in three caps for Australia.
Could Boyle replace Kent?
Boyle has recently signed a new contract at Easter Road, which is perhaps just as well – the Gers supporters do not seem too pleased to be linked with him at all. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Kevin Kyle said on open goal last night that Rangers should sell Ryan Kent and sign Martin Boyle from Hibs and it’s kept me up most of the night 😂

I like Boyle , but to compare him with Kent is way off . Think Boyle could do well for us

Had a wee chuckle at that earlier.
Maybe Leeds could save £12M and pick up Boyle for a tenner.
