Rangers may have paid a sizeable fee to get Kent in through the door but on this performance, it does look like the money has been well spent.
Hamilton made it a tough game for Steven Gerrard’s side but you need moments of quality to break the deadlock and Kent provided that today.
His first goal before half time was a fabulous strike, rifling into the top corner from just outside the box, with his second a calm finish to seal the victory.
