Ryan Kent, according to Ally McCoist, is worth between £25 and £30 million.
Following a Petroltank Cup loss at Alloa in December 2014, the former Question of Sport captain has been out of football management. He had seen Raith Rovers win the trophy the previous season in the final versus Lee McCulloch’s bravehearts.
Kent joined Ibrox on the final day of the summer transfer window for a record £7 million fee, despite no other clubs expressing interest in the Liverpool reject.
Ross Wilson’s highest transfer fee as Director of Football was £195,000 when Hull City signed Greg Docherty over the course of three transfer windows.
Ibrox supporters and punters have become obsessed with selling a player for Dembele Bucks, with efforts to hype up Alfredo Morelos, James Tavernier, and Glen Kamara both struggling to attract a single offer.
The Daily Record notes on a BT Sport show featuring McCoist and Chris Sutton that aired last night:
McCoist said: “By the way, it might happen if they get an unbelievable offer. That is the economics of football, we understand that totally. What’s he worth? £25-30m right now. £25-30m for Ryan Kent.”
Fellow guest Chris Sutton chimed in with a fee of £27m.
McCoist responded: “Well done, funnily enough that is between £25-30m. You’ve done well there, that is certainly a figure.
“You need Ryan Kents. These are the players you need to unlock defences, to get the ball, have the stepover: over left he’s away right and vice-versa.
“He goes and commits somebody, he gets by somebody and someone has to come to him so the defence opens up. He is absolutely vital to Rangers.”
The vermin have been trying to sell players for years now and they think that any player they have could be worth a fortune.
Ryan Kent has helped his side win the league and fair play, but they have done it at a time of abnormal circumstances and Celtic haven’t put up a challenge, the orcs have been moaning for years about how Celtic win titles with no challenge so they should live by their own logic.
In regards to Kent, he’s not any better that when Gerrard first got him on loan so why would Liverpool sell a player that could become a £30 million star?
