Rangers: Barry Ferguson believes Ryan Kent will stay

Rangers: Barry Ferguson believes Ryan Kent will stay -Rangers News

Rangers’ Ryan Kent will sign a new contract and stay at Ibrox, according to Barry Ferguson.

The Lowdown: Kent’s future

Kent’s future at Rangers is currently up in the air, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

The Englishman arrived in Glasgow originally back in 2018 on a season-long loan from Liverpool before the Gers made his stay permanent in a £7.5m deal.

He’s since gone on to play 201 games for Rangers scoring 32 goals and providing 54 assists on the way to an SPFL title, Scottish Cup and a Europa League final.

The Latest: Ferguson’s comments

Following Kent’s equalising goal against Celtic on Monday, Ferguson said on The Go Radio Football Show that he believes the relationship with Michael Beale will see him sign a new contract.

He said: “I think he will sign a new deal. I think he looked really happy.

“Look, before, his form wasn’t great, but one thing I will say about Ryan Kent, was he always gave 100%.

“I thought today he had another real good game, and listen, his finish was brilliant to watch.

“I do believe that Ryan Kent is in a happy place, him and Michael Beale go back a long way, so that’s the reason why I think that you could see Ryan Kent signing a new contract.”

The Verdict: Vital for Rangers

There is set to be huge uncertainty over the Rangers squad heading into next season as Beale looks to build his side amid the potential departures of key players.

According to Transfermarkt, Kent is the Gers’ eighth-highest purchase and the only one in the top 17 that was signed after 2006, such has become the Ibrox outfit’s limitations in the transfer window.

Therefore, Kent leaving for nothing would be a huge blow to Rangers, not only when considering his form under his old coach, but that it would leave it upon Ross Wilson to deliver a bargain replacement who would have the same impact.

The second half of the season will be key in his future, and if the 26-year-old – dubbed as “incredible” by The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell – continues his form at the club, the Gers’ task of tying him down will become a lot easier.
