RANGERS boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has provided an injury update on Ryan Kent. 

The winger was a notable absentee from today's matchday squad as Kilmarnock visited Ibrox.

It wasn't always pretty, but the Light Blues got the job done thanks to second-half goals from Antonio Colak and Alfredo Morelos.

It was an important three points on the board, as Rangers recovered from Tuesday night's Champions League disappointment. 

Kent picked up a knock last weekend against Livingston and also missed the Union SG game. 

But van Bronckhorst says he's hopeful the Englishman will return to action for this Tuesday's second-leg.

He told the media in his post-match conference that today came too soon for Kent, but he should feature against the Belgians.
