Rangers’ newest signing, Ryan Kent, has expressed his satisfaction of joining the Scottish giants by having a pop at his former clubs.
The winger said that he had a difficult summer and – for the first time in his career – he’s happy with the club he’s at.
“I am delighted to be back here, it has been a quite a long summer, a lot of things could have potentially happened but I am delighted to be here,” he’s quoted as saying by Football Scotland.
“I won’t lie it has been incredibly tough over the summer but I am a mentally strong person as it is anyway.
“I knew if I kept myself correct something good would happen soon and I have been ticking over, keeping myself to myself and this has happened now and I’m over the moon.
“I got a feel for what it was to be a Rangers player, I felt like there was unfinished business from last year and I am hoping to put that right.”
The former Liverpool forward spent the summer touring the US with the senior squad, but never looked like impressing Jurgen Klopp and was rightly moved on.
At 22-year-old, you’d expect a player to start settling down at a club. If he wasn’t doing that at Anfield then a permanent move elsewhere is a good idea.
“Throughout the whole transfer window the support from them for me to come back has been incredible, it has been overwhelming at times,” he continued. “I am just delighted to be back here and hopefully I can put on a big show for these people.
“It was massively important to find a home, for the past four years now I have been on the move to different places and last year was the first time I have felt content with the football club I am at.”
The winger followed youngster Bobby Duncan out of the door, but Welsh international Harry Wilson was allowed to go out on another loan.
It may be that Klopp thinks Wilson may be of value – either as a squad player or as a profitable transfer – next summer. It remains to be seen.
One thing that’s for sure is that Kent has made the right move for him, and Empire of the Kop wish him nothing but all the best.
