Ryan Kent was on the scoresheet on Sunday as Rangers beat Hamilton 4-1 to move up to fifth in the Scottish Premiership.
The Liverpool loanee, making the 100th senior appearance of his club career, put Steven Gerrard’s men ahead in the 40th minute to mark his second goal for the club and continue his fine run of form.
Kent displayed an excellent turn of pace to run onto Alfredo Morelos’ pass, before expertly lofting the ball beyond on-rushing goalkeeper Gary Woods.
Rangers were almost made to pay for not adding to their tally when the hosts levelled things up through Steven Boyd in the 80th minute.
A dramatic finish, however, saw two late penalties from James Tavernier and a fourth from Morelos in the 94th minute secure Rangers their first away league win this season.

Kent has asserted himself as an instrumental figure in Gerrard’s attacking setup and is slowly threatening to produce the figures his talent dictates he is capable of.
His sparkling form follows on from miserable loan spells with Freiburg and Bristol City last season in seemingly getting his career back on track.
Gerrard recently insisted he would sign Kent on a permanent basis right now were he given the chance.
