Kent excited to find new ‘home’ with Rangers switch
Ryan Kent is hopeful of being able to put down some roots in Scotland after completing his permanent move from Liverpool to Rangers.
The Light Blues finally got the player they have been chasing all summer on transfer deadline day, agreeing a £7million fee with the Reds.
Merseyside boss Jurgen Klopp was keen to keep the 22-year-old winger at Anfield, believing he had a role to play for the European champions, but Kent had been focused on joining a club where he was guaranteed first-team chances.
Kent enjoyed a productive loan spell with the Gers last term, scoring six times in 43 appearances, and is delighted to return.

Having previously had loan spells with Barnsley, Freiburg, Bristol City and Rangers, Kent is pleased to have finally found a permanent home having put pen to paper on a four-year deal at Ibrox.
“I won’t lie – it has been incredibly tough over the summer, but I am a mentally strong person as it is anyway,” he told Rangers TV.
“It was massively important to find a home. For the past four years now, I have been on the move to different places and last year was the first time I have felt content with the football club I am at.
“The fans and the people within the team, the coaches, the players, everybody welcomed me with open arms and not just as a player but as a friend. My home is here now.”
