Ryan Kent has expressed his unhappiness at Liverpool’s treatment of him with a thinly-veiled dig at the club on social media.
The 22-year-old winger has been targeted by Rangers for a return to Ibrox all summer, having enjoyed a successful loan spell last season.
However, Liverpool only want to sell the attacker, which appears to rule out a return to Steven Gerrard’s side – especially with the reigning Europan champions wanting as much as £12million for Kent.
A move to Leeds also fell through because the Championship outfit were said to be unwilling to spend more than £5m on him and that appears to have Kent in the wilderness.
He lined up for Liverpool Under-23s against Tottenham on Saturday in front of less than 200 people and it would seem that he has no chance of breaking into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans.
And now he has taken a thinly-veiled dig at the club, with a social post suggesting he feels Liverpool are stopping him from moving forward, especially after pricing him out of a move.
He posted a Bible passage from St Peter which reads: “And through covetousness shall they with fiend words make merchandise of you: whose judgement now of a long time lingered not, and their damnation slumbereth not”.
In modern English that translates to: “In their greed teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.”
It is not the first time that Kent has taken to Instagram to suggest he is unhappy with his current plight.
He has also posted images from TV show Prison Break, and also uploaded an image of Prince with the word ‘slave’ written on his face.
He has also deleted all images of him playing for Liverpool on Instagram, after also unfollowing them, as he desperately seeks a move away from Merseyside.
