Rangers winger Ryan Kent says he would be interested in returning to Ibrox in the future if it were possible.
The 22-year-old is heading back to Liverpool at the end of his loan spell in June, but when asked about extending his time in Scotland, he replied:
“It is an option, it is a possibility. Since I have walked in the door on day one the fans have been magnificent to me. All the coaching staff and all the players have really made me feel welcome.”
“I feel that has got the best out of me. This club has done a lot for me so it would be nice to do a lot for them in the future as well.”
Kent was speaking after picking up the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year, which he was given after an excellent season in the SPFL.
The wide man has scored six goals and provided nine assists in 40 appearances since his arrival at Rangers last summer.
Kent’s admission hands manager Steven Gerrard a boost in trying to secure the winger on a permanent basis.
However, Liverpool’s asking price for the midfielder will likely prove a major stumbling block. Reports in the local media around Merseyside suggest that the Reds are demanding in excess of £12m for the player this summer.
Gerrard’s connections with the Reds may help but whether he’ll be able to reduce that figure, it remains to be seen.
