Ally McCoist was left thrilled by Rangers winger Ryan Kent in the latest Old Firm clash with Celtic which ended 1-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Steven Gerrard wouldn’t have been happy with his side falling behind, but Alfredo Morelos’ first derby goal brought the sides level.

The Bears really stepped it up after the equaliser, and almost took the lead when Kent smashed a volley at goal which was stopped by Scott Bain.


Speaking during live coverage of the game on Sky Sports, McCoist was in awe of what he had seen Kent do during the opening 45 minutes.

“What technique, what technique that is,” he said.

“Fantastic, one of the hardest balls to take over your shoulder, wow – good save.”



After a mid-season blip from Kent, he has been sensational in recent months as we sealed the Scottish Premiership title.

The 24-year-old has scored eight goals and added seven assists, with only James Tavernier being involved in more goals for the Bears.

Gerrard has been morphing the former Liverpool talent into a player that is consistently attracting interest from the Premier League, although he isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

After handing him the chance to leave Anfield and follow in the managers’ footsteps, Kent has really kicked on and repaid the faith shown in him.

There is bound to be more interest in the summer, but with Champions League football to look forward too, we certainly have at least one more season of fun with Kent ahead.
