Former Dundee United and Celtic defender Mark Wilson has praised Rangers winger Ryan Kent for his performance against Hamilton at the weekend.
The 23-year-old scored a vital brace as the Light Blues secured a 3-1 away win, but Wilson was particularly impressed with Kent’s first goal which was an excellent strike with his left foot from outside the box:
“[It was an] unbelievable [goal]. He just looked a constant threat. I think this was what the Rangers fans saw last year.”
Wilson says that Kent has had to be patient to get back to full fitness after his summer move from Liverpool but we are now seeing the best of him:
“It has maybe taken a wee bit of time to get up to speed but yesterday [Sunday] he was unstoppable. It is a full-back’s nightmare to play against a guy like him in that sort of form.”
It was those type of quality moments that led to the Gers shelling out £7m on the English winger, and they will be hoping for a few more to come over the coming months.
After the match against Hamilton, manager Steven Gerrard said it was the type of match they would have drawn last season, but as we saw on Sunday, having a player like Kent in the side can make all the difference.
