Steven Gerrard has told the Rangers fans that he is doing all he can to try and lure Ryan Kent back to Ibrox.

The Liverpool winger, who played his final game for Rangers in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Kilmarnock, has had a huge impact for the Gers this season, scoring six goals and grabbing six assists in 23 Scottish Premiership games

The 23-year-old was also named PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year and Gerrard confirmed after the Kilmarnock defeat that he had made an offer to Liverpool for Kent.

The Liverpool Echo claim Liverpool value Kent at around £12million, but it’s understood Gerrard is hoping to lure Kent back on another loan spell.

Gerrard, who is also keen on striker Greg Stewart, said: “We’re doing everything we can. We’re speaking to Liverpool, we’re in touch with Ryan’s representatives, we’ve made an offer and we’re hopeful but there’s nothing to say on it to confirm it, but for our supporters what I can do is guarantee we’re doing everything we can to try and get him in.

“We’ve got irons in the fire with numerous players but all I can say is watch this space.

“We’re making additions to the squad and Greg Stewart is someone we admire very much.”

Gerrard is hopeful that the goodwill between himself and Liverpool, along with his close relationship with Kent will see the winger return to Ibrox.

“I have been able to showcase my ability not only on a domestic level but also on a European platform and I have Steven Gerard to thank for that,” Kent told Sky Sports News earlier this month

“I am really grateful for the opportunities that I have been given this season.”

“It is an option, it is a possibility,” Kent said when asked about a return to Rangers. “Since I have walked in the door on day one the fans have been magnificent to me. All the coaching staff and all the players have really made me feel welcome.

“I feel that has got the best out of me. This club has done a lot for me so it would be nice to do a lot for them in the future as well.”

Kent though has confirmed that he is ‘tired of changing clubs each year’ and wishes to leave Liverpool this summer to ‘settle down’ somewhere.
