STEVEN GERRARD is confident Rangers will continue to reap the rewards of a settled Ryan Kent as the winger looks to build on his stunning start to the season.

Kent has five goals to his credit already this term and has been the main man in the Gers attack.

The 23-year-old has made Ibrox home from home since moving from Liverpool and will play a key part in the Light Blues' title challenge in the coming months.

Gerrard said: "Ryan is really benefitting from the fact he had a full pre-season without any niggles or injuries.

"He is fantastic form at the moment, he is great to watch and great to work with.

"He is adding different dimensions to his game, one of them being constantly running in behind.

"He is executing when he gets into right areas and long may that continue.

"I know that he wants more numbers in his game, that’s part of his development that us as a staff are focusing real hard on, to help and guide him.

"I don’t think confidence has ever been an issue. Ryan backs himself.

"I think you’ve always got to back yourself when you have those tools in your armoury.

"The thing with Ryan is that he moved around a lot. He obviously came through the system at Liverpool, did really well to get in and around the first team and then he went on numerous loans where he was going here, there and everywhere.

"Sometimes you just need some security, you need to settle and find a place that suits you and suits your game.

"I think he has settled into life in Glasgow. He has a girlfriend from up them ways and he feels like Rangers is his first home since Liverpool.

"I think we are benefitting from he fact he is settled off the pitch too."
