The Lowdown: Uncertain future
Light Blues chiefs are reportedly attempting to convince the 26-year-old to extend his stay at Ibrox, but having not yet put pen to paper on fresh terms, his future remains up in the air.
The Latest: Robinson’s comments
Asked by Football Insider whether Kent should consider leaving Rangers to make the move to the Premier League, former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson responded:
“It would be a massive coup if Rangers can keep hold of him. He has been linked with a move to the Premier League for a very long time now.
“The opportunity to leave on a free does not come around often. Is this going to be his last opportunity to get to the Premier League? He needs to think about that.
“He hasn’t been at his best this season but it would still be a huge coup for Rangers. There is no doubting his talent.”
The Verdict: Tie him down
Michael Beale’s recent arrival is believed to have had no negative bearing on Kent’s future, so the new manager needs to do everything that he can to tie him down for the long-term.
The Oldham-born talent has been a revelation in Scotland, racking up 84 goal contributions (53 assists and 31 goals) since joining Rangers, showing the prolific impact that he can have in the final third.
The Light Blues certainly haven’t been at their best so far this term, but with Beale now in the dugout, Kent could begin to flourish again in the manager’s probable new 4-3-3 attacking formation.
