Rangers ended the transfer window on a high with the conclusion of a summer-long pursuit for Ryan Kent. The 22-year-old was wanted by Steven Gerrard after he had a stellar season last year.

In fact, Kent was so good he was named as the Scottish Young Player of the Year, and the player himself wanted to move back to Glasgow.

The move looked like it might collapse because Liverpool did not want to do a loan deal and they were very serious about their £7m asking fee.

Finally, Rangers reached an agreement, and they provided their fans with some much-needed good news after a dreadful defeat in the Old Firm.

The addition of Kent could be the player that Rangers have missed, and he may well provide them with a spark that could allow them to launch a serious title charge.

Certainly, they could have done with him in the Old Firm game – as last season the 22-year-old seemed to save his best days for those matches.

On Sunday not many of the Rangers squad turned up, and a clinical Celtic side punished them.

Kent in terms of stats was not actually that great only scoring six goals and providing six assists in the league, but his overall impact on the side cannot be underestimated.

It is no wonder that Gerrard pursued Kent all summer he realises how important signing the 22-year-old is to Rangers’ hopes of winning some silverware.
