Ross Wilson makes yet another blunder as Rangers transfer stance on Ryan Kent emerges
Ross Wilson keeps on showing his ineptitude with Rangers now reportedly set to make a decision on Ryan Kent at the end of this year.
Journalist Dean jones, who previously worked for Bleacher Report, said to Give Me Sport on 18 November that clubs in England and Germany are interested in Kent, and will know “by the end of the year” whether the winger will stay or leave.
This is a prime example of a lack of awareness from Wilson and no wonder why the Gers fans are frustrated with him and want him gone.
Speaking with Give Me Sport, Jones said: “I know he’s got a couple of clubs interested in him in England, there’s been a couple of clubs in Germany tracking him for a while now as well too.
“So, we should know by the end of the year exactly which way this is going.”
Kent has a contract at the club until the end of the season. By now the decision should have been made already on his future, although it’s unthinkable how the club allowed the situation to reach this far.
Instead, they are now waiting until January to find out what he wants – this is sheer madness.
Wilson’s primary job is to sort out deals with his key players. He should be more proactive in transfer talks, but what we find here is just the opposite.
With Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s job under threat, the club now faces a situation where they don’t know what’s going to happen next with one of their major assets.
Rangers signed Kent permanently from Liverpool in a deal worth up to £7.5m on a four-year contract in September 2019, as reported by Sky Sports.
He has established himself as a key player for the club, and the winger is one of the bankable assets. Losing him for free or on a measly transfer fee will be a financial blow for the Bears.
It is hard to believe that Wilson hasn’t yet found a solution to the contract situations of Kent and Alfredo Morelos.
Van Bronckhorst is likely to stay and he will get the backing of the board, as it stands. But the manager doesn’t yet know whether he can rely on his key player in a few weeks’ time as he sets upon the hardest job of winning the fans and closing the gap with Celtic.
Wilson has proved again why he must be sacked. This is simply unacceptable.
