Fenerbahce 'Earthquake' mooted as Ryan Kent to Rangers links emerge

Unwanted Fenerbahce star Ryan Kent will not make a return to Rangers during the January transfer window, according to Vatan.

The Turkish news outlet reported on its website (20 November) that Kent’s salary would be “too much” for the Gers to cover if he were to make a return to Ibrox on loan after reports.

Fenerbahce remain keen on shipping the 27-year-old out following his struggles since arriving at the club, with his situation described as an “earthquake”.

Initial reports had suggested a move to Rangers was a possibility, but with this latest news, the Turkish giants are now assessing alternative routes as they look to secure a loan move for the forward during the winter.

For the best

They say that you should never get back with an ex, and this might be the case when it comes to Kent and Rangers. While the romanticism of a reunion might excite some fans of the Glasgow giants, in practice, the move might not have worked.

Kent’s departure from the club was a soap opera which dragged on, and reopening that can of worms would not be to the benefit of the team.

He has clearly struggled in Turkey and while a move back to Scotland could relight his fire, he could also return a player low on confidence, which could threaten to derail the momentum Phillippe Clement is building.

Clement’s arrival signified a fresh start for the Gers, and perhaps it is best for the club to continue with that theme, especially if the cost of a move is too much as reported.

For now, it is probably best if the Kent and Rangers chapter remains closed.
