'This Boy...Is A Joy To Watch' - Gerrard must be 'Over the moon' with Rangers ace, says pundit
Alan Hutton has been left head over heels after Ryan Kent helped Rangers to a crushing victory over Aberdeen on Sunday.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Gers and Scotland defender has lauded the 24-year-old for his creative genius and consistent performances at Ibrox.
Kent netted with a deflected long-range strike and set up Scott Arfield on the way to a 4-0 win over Derek McInnes’ men to help cement the Light Blues’ place at the top of the Premiership table.
Hutton has heralded Kent for being at the heart of everything that Rangers create in attack and admitted he was dazzled once again on Sunday afternoon.
Hutton told Football Insider: “He really is a joy to watch. I mean, we’ve always spoken in the past about wingers and how they kind of float in and out of games – this boy just seems to be in the game constantly.
“Everything that Rangers do going forward goes through him, he starts off attacks, he makes things happen and it just summed up his performance with the little cheeky nutmeg and the great strike from distance.

“He’s playing at the top of his game at the moment, week in, week out and Gerrard must be over the moon with his performances – not just with him but from everyone, but he is definitely a top performer.”
Kent now has six goals and seven assists under his belt in 20 appearances across all competitions for Rangers this season.
Only James Tavernier, with nine assists and 13 goals, many of which have come from the penalty spot, has more goal contributions under his belt for Steven Gerrard’s men.
