Brian Laudrup believes Ryan Kent’s loyalty to Rangers could keep him at the club for “one or two” more seasons.

And he believes that the former Liverpool man will be further swayed by Rangers’ Champions League involvement, a proposition which may not be available at clubs previously linked with the attacker.

Kent was in fine form at the weekend as Rangers beat Celtic for a fourth time this season.

Often the standout in the Old Firm, he set up Kemar Roofe’s opening goal and was a menace throughout the 90 minutes.

Such performances show Kent’s quality. He was heavily linked with Leeds United in the summer and after an excellent season, such interest is unlikely to go away.

"Everyone knows the financial side of football influences decisions,” Laudrup told the Daily Mail.

"A really huge offer might come in this summer that Rangers and the player both decide they can't turn down. That's life. But I hope Kent stays at Ibrox. Because I can see real benefits from it.

"The lure of the Champions League is there next season. It could be a chance to test himself against the very best players in the biggest competition of all. You can't get that at Leeds right now.

"I think Kent feels he owes a lot to Rangers for the opportunity they have given him. And there's no doubt he has paid them back this season.

Glasgow Times:

"But one or two more years in Glasgow could enable him to make those improvements I see within him. There could be more trophies.

"More experiences. I think it's too much to leave behind just yet.

"At 25 or 26, he would still have plenty of time to go to a different league. Growing his game further, impressing in the Champions League, could open up another, higher level of club being interested him. It's possible. If he keeps on rising."
