Rangers expect winger Ryan Kent to return to first-team action after the international break, according to the Glasgow Evening Times. It was initially believed that the 22-year-old would only miss a couple of weeks but the medical staff have been taking extra precautions with the ex-Liverpool player’s recovery.
The midfielder was injured just 40 minutes into his second debut for the club in the 3-1 win against Livingston on September 14th, and assistant manager Gary McAllister revealed that he returned to light training ten days later.
However, Kent has since missed out on the games against Livingston in the League Cup, the 5-0 victory over Aberdeen in the league, the defeat to Young Boys as well as the big win versus Hamilton yesterday.
With a thirteen-day gap until Rangers’ next game against Hearts, it is now believed that the winger will be ready to make his comeback. He will likely be on the bench when Steven Gerrard’s side travel to Tynecastle.
