Gers fans will see much more of what I can do, vows new boy Kent


By Staff Reporter

Ryan Kent was pleased to secure a victory on his Rangers debut and insists he has a lot more to give.

The on-loan Liverpool winger helped Rangers take command of their Europa League second qualifying round tie against Osijek with a 1-0 first-leg victory in Croatia, as Alfredo Morelos scored the only goal.

The 21-year-old Kent, who has had previous loan spells at Coventry, Barnsley, Freiburg and Bristol City, said: "I think I can build on that performance, there were moments I wasn't happy with and moments I was.

"It was my first 90 minutes for a while so I have got that out of the way now and can push on.

"I am feeling fitter and fitter as pre-season is progressing and we are coming up to the season now and I'll be up to speed."

Kent's display also pleased manager Steven Gerrard, who enthused over another loan signing, midfielder Lassana Coulibaly.

Gerrard said: "I am very pleased with them. Ryan has only played two 45 minutes in friendly games, and he still has another level to go to.

"Lassana was majestic and he covered every blade of grass."
