RANGERS are delighted to confirm the return of Ryan Kent to the club on a permanent basis from Liverpool Football Club for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

The winger has signed a four-year-deal with the Gers after spending the 2018/19 season on loan at Ibrox.

Ryan established himself as a fan favourite in his first spell with the Light Blues, starting 40 games, making a total of 43 appearances and scoring six goals. He won the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year Award, as well as being nominated for the main award. He walked away from the Rangers Player of the Year Awards with the same young player accolade.

Rangers was the 22-year-old’s fifth loan move of his young career, following spells with Coventry City, Barnsley, SC Freiburg and Bristol City but he made it clear he had found a home with the Light Blues. He commented in May, “I feel like I have re-found my love for the game here.”

Born in Oldham Ryan joined Liverpool aged seven-years-old and progressed through the ranks, earning him involvement with the first team since 2015. He toured with Jürgen Klopp’s squad this summer following his return from Rangers, playing in their pre-season friendlies across America.

The 22-year-old will join up with Steven Gerrard’s squad when the team return from the international break.
