Rangers manager Steven Gerrard believes winger Ryan Kent could be back in action in as little as two weeks despite having sustained a hamstring injury.
The 22-year-old had to be substituted in the first half of the 3-1 win against Livingston on Saturday and it was feared that he may face a lengthy period on the sidelines. However, speaking ahead of the Europa League game against Feyenoord tomorrow, Gerrard was optimistic that Kent will be back soon:
“Ryan Kent is now pain-free walking around, I still think it will be a couple of weeks as you need to be careful with hamstring injuries.”
It will be a huge boost for the Light Blues if Kent is able to return sooner than anticipated. He’s still likely to miss four games with the matches versus Feyenoord, St Johnstone in the league, Livingston in the League Cup and a home clash against Aberdeen all likely to come too soon.
The Gers’ second Europa League group stage match against Young Boys on the 3rd October could be a possibility, or he may be eased back in against Hamilton at home on the 6th October.
