Rangers winger Ryan Kent is expected to be back in contention for the league game against St Mirren on Sunday.
The 24-year-old has been sidelined since the 2-0 defeat to Lyon last month due to a hamstring injury, but if he gets through training this week, he should be available to feature at St Mirren Park.
Supporters on Twitter are excited to see Kent back in action, with many feeling that the Light Blues have missed his flair and creativity:
This is massive! Like buying 2 top quality players.

Fantastic news on Kent. Scott Wright isn’t up to starting week in week out but is an excellent impact sub.

He’s too important to rush back. Can’t wait to see him starting again

It would be a surprise to see Kent start versus St Mirren, considering he has been sidelined for five weeks, but it will be good to see him get some minutes off the bench before the midweek fixture versus Aberdeen.
Kent was criticised for some below-par performances before he was sidelined and it will be hoped he returns from this recent layoff with the determination to get back to his best form.
