Rangers winger Ryan Kent was guilty of producing an ‘atrocious’ performance in Saturday’s Old Firm derby, according to Four Lads Had A Dream.
Rangers fell to a 4-0 defeat against their arch-rivals at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon, slipping five points adrift of Ange Posteoglou’s side in the title race after just six matches.
Liel Abada scored twice in the first half, either side of a Jota goal, with David Turnbull adding a fourth 12 minutes from full time.
Kent made his fourth start in six Scottish Premiership matches, playing 78 minutes before he was replaced by Fashion Sakala.
4LHAD, official club partners, said Kent was partly culpable for half of the goals Rangers conceded, ineffective in possession and ‘half-hearted’ in his application.
“I watched him help cost us two goals, create absolutely zero and give minimal effort, he literally jogged about half hearted,” their tweet read.
“I’m his biggest fan but he was atrocious today.”
Meanwhile, The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell also criticised Kent for his role in Celtic’s second.
“[It] comes from a quick free kick, just like the first one came from a quick throw in,” he said.
“It’s such a basic thing but why Kent gives Celtic the ball and doesn’t stand over it is beyond me.”
Kent’s stats do admittedly paint the picture of a player who failed to make an impact.
Despite playing nearly the entirety of the match, he wasn’t able to register a shot of any description (via SofaScore).
And like 4LHAD touched on, he didn’t register a single key pass over the course of the game.
Kent also ceded possession ten times, the most of any Rangers attacking player.
