It looks like Leeds United will put an end to their obsession with Rangers FC.
Rangers FC will be away from the pitch until next weekend, but that is not necessarily keeping them out of the headlines in the media. One of the main narratives surrounding the club this season is transfer sagas.
We already know about the ongoing situation with star striker Alfredo Morelos. The Colombian’s status in the club remains up in the air.
With his replacements already at Ibrox, the club and Steven Gerrard will be hoping to set Morelos free soon if a serious bid is tabled.
With that major distraction taking up too much space in Gerrard’s agenda, fans will be pleased to hear that a different dilemma involving Ryan Kent might be resolved.
Kent has been nothing short of impressive since joining Rangers, and his start to this campaign has fans excited. At the same time, though, his good run of form also attracted the attention of newly-promoted Premier League side Leeds United.
The Whites’ front office offered Rangers an insulting £10m offer to secure the Englishman’s services, and it was said that they would come back with a bid around £14m.
After seeing how quick Rangers were to push their initial offer back, the Premier League outfit will no longer pursue Kent in this transfer window, according to the Glasgow Times.
Kent made it clear a few days ago that his main desire is to stay with Rangers, and Leeds United’s cooled interest in the winger assured fans that Kent is staying put.
From what fans have witnessed this season, Rangers can certainly be serious title contenders without Morelos, but the same cannot be said about Kent.
The 23-year-old has never lacked confidence in a light blue jersey, but this season he has quickly become the go-to man for Rangers.
If the club want to win title 55 this season, the last thing they need is for their primary playmaker to have his head turned.
Well, it looks like that will not be a problem Gerrard, the executive board, and the supporters will need to worry about… at least until January.
