Ryan Kent has yet to agree a new Rangers contract amid an agent wrangle, Football Insider has been told.

This site broke the news in October that the Scottish Premiership leaders are keen to reward the winger, 24, with an improved deal that reflects his status as one of the club’s star men.

But negotiations have been unable to advance as both parties would have hoped.

Sources have told Football Insider this is due to complications stemming from Kent switching agents at the end of last year.

Football Insider broke the news on 18 November that the winger is no longer represented by the Crown Football agency.

The in-form attacker is now being looked after by his family, including brother Casper Kent, who was with Ryan when he completed a permanent Rangers transfer in September 2019.

Issues with the switch of representation has led to a delay in talks with Rangers over a new deal.

Club chiefs are willing to put him in line with their top earners like Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe, Scott Arfield and James Tavernier.

Kent penned a four-year deal worth around £20,000-a-week when he signed permanently from Liverpool 16 months ago for around £7million.

Football Insider exclusively revealed in September that Kent has a £20million release clause in his contract.

Kent has had an excellent season for Steven Gerrard’s side and been their consistently most effective attacker.

The winger has made 33 appearances for Rangers this term, scoring six goals and providing 11 assists.
