Kenny Miller was left baffled when Ryan Kent was taken off by Rangers

Kenny Miller was left stunned by David McCallum’s decision to take Rangers star Ryan Kent off against Hibernian.

The Gers fell to a 3-1 defeat in the Scottish League Cup semi-final, but Kent was taken off pretty early in the second half, which confused the BBC pundit.

The 24-year-old wasn’t too happy himself, and it did seem like a very odd decision to take him off when they were still chasing the game.

Speaking on the BBC, Miller said: “He doesn’t look happy at being substituted, Ryan Kent. As much as he’s been quiet, he’s always capable of producing something. [He] and Joe Aribo, those are the two players in Rangers jerseys that can make something happen.”

Odd decision.

Kent has proven time and time again that he can be the difference for the Gers.

So, with his side trailing 3-1, it seemed very strange that they decided to take him off, and he clearly wasn’t too pleased about the decision.

He must have thought that he still had plenty to give, and it was just an odd decision.

Ultimately, it made no difference as the Bears failed to get back into the match, but you would think they might have had a better chance had Kent remained on the pitch.

This was an awful afternoon for the Bears, and they will want to forget about it quickly.

However, Giovanni van Bronckhorst clearly has a lot of work to do, and one of the things he will have to do is try and get the best out of Kent because he can and should be a matchwinner for the Gers.
