We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish has claimed that Rangers winger Ryan Kent will be frustrated with his current form in the Scottish Premiership.
The winger started once again in the game with Kilmarnock on Saturday, but it was Ryan Jack who fired home the winner for the home side.
McLeish admitted that one or two goals will see Kent get back to his confident best this season as the Bears charge towards 55.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “He’ll be frustrated.
“He’s a bright young guy, and he’s been a smashing footballer for Rangers. He’s still adding something to the team.
“He’ll have to recognise where Rangers are at the moment, and the part that he is playing in that, regardless of his goal tally.
“Yes, he’ll be annoyed that he’s not got one or two more. One thing that he has to be careful of, he gets a bit demented about it and he starts doing things that is alien to his game.
“It will just take one or two goals to get back to that confidence level that he is possibly missing.”
It was another disappointing afternoon for Kent.
The 24-year-old managed three shots on goal according to WhoScored, no one attempted more on the entire pitch at Ibrox, as he blanked once again.
This will be becoming a major worry for Gerrard, who will be wanting his winger back to his best, something that appears miles away at this moment in time.
With European football returning this week, the Bears need to be at the top of their game to continue this form, and they will need every player to step up.
