Ryan Kent was like a man possessed for Rangers on Sunday night as he struck fear into the hearts of Celtic in the final Old Firm derby of the season.

It was arguably one of the 24-year-old’s best performances in Scottish football with Stiliyan Petrov even saying on Sky Sports after the game that the Englishman was “something special“.

While Kent didn’t score a goal or get an assist knowingly, he did manage to see a wayward shot diverted into the back of the net cleverly by Kemar Roofe and made a mockery of the Celtic defence throughout.

One of the best moments of the game was in the second half when Kent turned Greg Taylor inside out with an outrageous piece of skill.

Kent rolled the ball with his right foot before flicking it with his backheel to beat Taylor on the edge of the Celtic penalty area.

One Gers fan who uploaded the clip to Twitter captioned it with: “I’d like to report a murder.”

Despite Kent producing a moment that would have Sky Sports talking for weeks if it was a Manchester United darling, BBC Sportscene didn’t feel as though they needed to include it in their highlights package after the game.

BBC Scotland dedicated over 26 minutes towards covering the Old Firm derby on Sunday and even decided to talk about Scott Brown for a bit, despite the outgoing Celtic player having a stinker and being substituted off early.

They made time for that and to even show a clip of him playing against Aberdeen (for some reason) yet didn’t bother to show Kent turning Taylor inside out with one of the most elegant pieces of skill in Scottish football history.

If you want more proof that BBC Scotland has it in for Rangers, here you go.

In other Rangers news, a new player is set to join up with preseason training in the summer with Ross Wilson’s talks concluded.
