RYAN Kent may well be tearing them apart again at Rangers next season.

The winger, immortalised in a Joy Division song (always a good thing), will return to Liverpool but with little hope of him getting a game with his parent club, the 22-year-old is certain to go out on loan.

And as his year at Ibrox has gone so well, Kent picked up PFA Scotland’s Young Player of the Year on Sunday, another season with Rangers is an option.

Kent said: “It’s something I’ll have a really good think about in the summer but first of all I want us to finish the league campaign as strongly as possible and that’s all I’m thinking about right now. I’ll have plenty of time in the summer to think about the other stuff and discuss it with my representatives.”

“Possibly, because I came up here to win trophies and that’s a department we’ve failed in this season so it would be nice to come back and win silverware but I don’t have anything more to say on that at the moment.

“The size of the club brings out the best in me. I didn’t realise how huge it was until I came here. Once I saw it for the first time and realised what football meant to these fans – what winning meant to them – it helped the mental side of my game. That’s what the manager wants; he wants winners.”

Rangers won’t win anything but Kent has and was thrilled to be voted best player under 23 by his peers.

He admitted: “This wasn’t in my thoughts when I came here. After a disappointing year with Freiburg and Bristol City I just wanted to enjoy my football again and receiving this award caps a fine season for me on a personal level.

“Working with two coaches who played at the highest level, you can always take away little things from them which you can add to your own game. Since day one the team has really welcomed me and I’ve settled really well, which hasn’t always been the case in the past.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself here and it’s brought out the best in me. The teams in the bottom half of the league are the ones we’ve probably struggled most against this season, coming up against the low block and different game plans.

“However, I feel as though I come alive against the bigger teams. I’ve stepped up to the plate and created chances on those occasions.”

Ask anyone about Kent and they will say the same thing. That he’s a talented boy but not consistent.

After a slow start, the winger has been one of Steven Gerrard’s best players thanks to him becoming a better professional.

Kent revealed: “My dedication off the field has also played a part – I’m always trying to better myself and I do extra work in the gym towards that end. There’s a lot more to come from me.

“These days, unless you’re scoring a lot of goals you don’t always get the credit you deserve and your performances on the pitch aren’t always represented in your stats and that’s all people look at now.

“You can beat three players and thread a through ball to somebody who squares it for somebody else to tap it in. You’re the one who’s created everything but you don’t get the goal or the assist. I think the fans have appreciated me this season but it’ll be when I start adding numbers to my game – goals and assists – that people will see the best of me.”

Kent was Rangers best player in the past Old Firm games. If this is his final days as a Ranger, he fancies saying goodbye in the the best possible way.

He said: “It would be nice to sign off with another goal against Celtic – to be honest, I’d like to have scored a few more goals than I have done this season, even though I’ve already scored more than in any other season. I’ll keep trying to improve that side of my game. Every game we’ve played this season we’ve tried to be dominant but it’s particularly important for us to take the three points this weekend because it’ll show the intent that Rangers have for next season.”
