Rangers winger Ryan Kent has said that there’s a lot more to come from him, admitting that he’s only 85 percent fit right now.
Kent re-signed for the Gers in a £7 million permanent deal this past summer but it’s been a difficult return to Ibrox, where he dazzled on loan from Liverpool last term.
The 22-year-old picked up a hamstring injury in his second debut for Rangers in September and was originally ruled out for six weeks.
He was given 66 minutes of Sunday’s 3-0 win over Hearts in a League Cup semi-final, setting up the light Blues’ third of the afternoon, and played the Europa League draw with Porto last month.
Rangers are back in European competition this week for the visit of the Portuguese giants to Ibrox on Thursday, but Kent has hinted that he may not be available after revealing that two games in a week is a struggle for him right now.
He told Evening Express: “I am not yet (back to best). I would probably say I am around 85 per cent at the moment. I am still struggling to do two games in one week on top of training sessions as well.
“Once I get a run of games under my belt, and get into the swing again, I will probably be seeing better performances but right now my focus is just on maintaining fitness. I can’t really afford to have another injury like that.”
Kent won the Young Player of the Year for his heroics with the light Blues last season and it’s so exciting for Rangers fans to have him back somewhat fit.
He clearly has another level that he can get to, despite impressing at Hampden Park yesterday, and no doubt he’ll be managed correctly.
