“You don’t want to see..” – Exclusive: Ball drops claim on ace who “cost Rangers a lot of money”

Former Rangers star Michael Ball hopes that Ryan Kent stays at the club beyond the summer transfer window amid links with Leeds United.

Kent has been in excellent form for Steven Gerrard’s side this season, as they have won the Scottish Premiership title with barely any fuss.

Indeed, Rangers did not lose a single league game, with Kent scoring 13 goals and laying on 15 assists in all competitions, from his position on the left flank.

Speaking at the start of May, Kent admitted that he is pleased to be linked with other clubs, such as Leeds, though he maintained that his focus would remain on Rangers until the end of the season.

Still, Ball hopes that Kent will choose to stay with the club who have helped him reignite his career following his £7.5m move from Liverpool.

Before his move to Ibrox, Kent had made just one senior appearance for the Reds, having gone on various loan spells, to Coventry City, Barnsley, Freiburg and Bristol City before heading north of the border.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “You don’t want to see him wearing a different jersey.

“He looks like he’s loving his time at Rangers, he’s developed as a player.

“He cost Rangers a lot of money at the time but they know that’s a great asset to have.”
