Liverpool winger Ryan Kent will be on the Reds’ tour of the United States making it unlikely that he’ll join Rangers this month.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be assessing the 22-year-old in pre-season and has yet to decide on whether he should be sent out on loan again.
As well as the Gers, Leeds and Middlesbrough have also been linked with a move for Kent recently.
Supporters on Twitter are losing interest in the transfer saga, and believe the Rangers squad can cope without him:
Let’s move on FFS. He’s not the messiah

Kent went on tour with Liverpool last season. Means nothing. He's only there coz mane. Salah and ferminio have an extended break

Do we honestly need him with the players we have now. Would the money on his wages be better spent elsewhere? Who then misses out if Kent plays? I know this isn't going to be a popular opinion but I dont think we need him

The situation is not in our hands so dont waste any thinking time on it. If it happens, fine, if not move on.

He went on tour with them last year, this was known 2 weeks ago that he'd be going.

Liverpool are playing three matches on the US tour. They first face Borussia Dortmund on Saturday before games against Sevilla on Sunday and Sporting Lisbon a week on Thursday.
In the meantime, whilst Kent is away, Rangers will play the second leg of their Europa League first qualifying round match against St Joseph’s.
If they get through as expected against the Gibraltar side, the second qualifying round is then scheduled to be played at the end of the month.
