13 Sep Liverpool Transfer Information: Ryan Kent blasts Anfield club for lying throughout Rangers transfer saga
The 22-year-old winger obtained the transfer to Ibrox he craved although not with a bothersome period, but nearly ended up in another club
Ryan Kent has crushed his former club Liverpool, accusing them of lying as he sought a transfer to Rangers.
The movement eventually went and the winger returned into the club at which he had had a successful loan spell at the 2018-19 year on a permanent basis on the final day of this Scottish transfer window.
Jurgen Klopp made it crystal clear there wasn’t any place for Kent in Anfield, however protracted nature of this transfer deal abandoned the 22-year-old frustrated, but he is happy now the outcome he desired came to pass.
“It was quite demanding,” Kent told a media conference. “I needed to stay emotionally powerful.
“When you’re told you are able to do something and you are lied to and it does not occur, that’s rather difficult to take.
“I simply had to keep myself fit and instruct on my very own and also make sure I maintain my fitness level up and that I had been waiting for a minute like that to arrive.
“There is no bitter flavor, the thing which I needed from the beginning happened in the end so that I am simply pleased with that.
“There were probably a few small concerns across the way once I believed this may not occur and I may need to plan for something different but I’d had a sense that it may go to the previous day of this window and that is what occurred.”
The transfer to Rangers nearly never came off, but Kent would not have stayed at Anfield either manner.
He had been in the airport waiting for a plane to combine Club Brugge, together with all the mouthwatering prospect of Champions League football awaiting himwhen the call came that Rangers needed him. Ultimately the choice to rejoin Steven Gerrard was a simple one.
“I had been checked in and sitting at the departure lounge at Manchester airport. That is when I receive a call from my broker and the gaffer [Gerrard] stating’do not proceed on the flight’
“I had been preparing to fly out and register for Club Brugge.

“They’re from the Champions League which was among the principal reasons I was going there.
“However, my heart was put on coming back [to Rangers].
“I believe I will achieve everything I need here and choose myself to wherever I wish to proceed.”
