Ryan Kent says he was lied to over his future before sealing his £7.5m move to Rangers
Ryan Kent claims he had been lied to this summer, prior to being permitted to proceed from Liverpool to Rangers.
The 22-year-old rejoined on the last evening of the transfer window in a deal understood to be worth up to #7.5m.
Rangers had previously failed to convince a 2nd season-long loan to be sanctioned by Liverpool after the winger left a major impression.
Following his returned from an extended break kent showcased in pre-season for Liverpool but found himself.
He admitted it had been a time before the move was stopped by Rangers.
«It was very demanding,» he explained. «I needed to stay mentally strong, once you’re told you can do one thing and then you are lied to and it doesn’t happen, that is rather difficult to take.
«I only had to keep myself fit and educate in my own and make sure I maintain my fitness level up and that I was waiting for a second like that to arrive.
«There’s no bitter taste, the thing that I wanted from the start happened at the ending so that I am simply happy with that.
«I would have liked to have been from the beginning, it is fairly difficult watching it on the TV wishing I had been a part of a few of the games but I am thrilled to return and I can not wait to begin.
«There were some small concerns across the way when I believed this may not happen and that I might have to plan for something else, but I’d had a sense that it might go to the last day of this window and that’s what occurred.»
Kent came through the academy of Liverpool and had loan spells at Coventry Freiburg, Barnsley, City and Bristol Rovers but he states Rangers is the very first club.
«I am in a privileged place in existence to be playing football, it’s every child’s fantasy,» Kent explained. «And I think it’s naive to not enjoy that position in life. I am fortunate to be in that place in life.
«For once in my life to be feeling at home someplace, to be really enjoying my football, I would like that feeling for the remainder of my career. When I arrived here, I felt for the very first time.
«The supervisor believes in me and the training staff. Mick Beale needed me and he got the best out of me and I truly begun to prosper as a young child and the fans get the best out of you.
«So just every thing as a collective at this club I think gets the very best out of me and my football.»
