Gerrard only took over at the Scottish club at the start of the season but already signed a couple of other Liverpool players in the form of Ovie Ejaria and Jon Flanagan who signed on a free.
The 21-year-old Kent is one of the brightest prospects at Anfield and he was excited to complete the move. While speaking to RangersTV (h/t Express) he claimed that the move was a no-brainer and it would be great to work under Gerrard.
“They have got a person in charge now in Steven Gerrard who has played at the highest level and achieved many great things. To learn from him is great, and I already know some of the players here.”
Kent also added that Rangers have another former Liverpool backroom staff member in Michael Beale, who he had worked with in the U23s at the club.
While the youngster wants to make the best out of the move, he did suggest that last season’s loan deal with Bundesliga side Freiburg did not go as plan but that he is hopeful for a better time this season.
“Last season was a disappointing year. I made my debut against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena [for Freiburg] and was involved in a promotion chase with Bristol City, so I did take a lot away from last season.
“I am hoping to build on that this year. Playing in front of 50,000 every week, you have got to turn out and perform. Playing on such a big stage, I don’t see how that can’t benefit you for the future.”
Kent stated that he would bring a lot of excitement to the fans at the club and it will be fun to see what he can do by playing regularly for a top club like Rangers.
Gerrard does have a few quality players on his side and they would need to challenge Celtic to see how close they can get to Brendan Rodgers’ team.
African sensation stalling on Serie A move as he wants to join Liverpool
Liverpool FC transfer news: Pepe stalling on Napoli move as he wants to join Reds
The 24-year-old had an excellent campaign for Lille last season as they finished second to Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.
Pepe scored 22 goals and provided 11 assists in the league, and the winger was also a part of the Ivory Coast side that participated in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Liverpool having a quiet summer window
The Reds were extremely busy last summer but this time around, they haven’t been too active.
Only Sepp van den Berg has joined the club, and the youngster should feature for the Reds in pre-season soon.
Liverpool have been linked with Pepe throughout the summer, and it is interesting to see that the winger is still with Lille.
Joining Liverpool is a no-brainer for him given that we won the Champions League last season and could do better in the following campaign.
The only problem in a move for Pepe would be his position. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane cannot be replaced in the first XI while Roberto Firmino is coming off a wonderful Copa America campaign.

Boost for Liverpool as PL club prefers selling star man to Champions League clubs
Latest Liverpool transfer news: Palace prefer selling Zaha to clubs such as Liverpool and not Arsenal
Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claims Crystal Palace are open to
Zaha is one of the best attackers in the Premier League and prefers a move to Arsenal, however, Palace
However, Solhekol believes Palace will only sell if they get the right price, and won’t stand in the way if a top club approaches them.
“They are saying ‘look, he’s our player, we would understand if he wanted to leave to go and play for a Champions League club, but Arsenal are not a Champions League club’.
“They wouldn’t stand in his way if Barcelona or Real Madrid or PSG or Manchester City or Liverpool were trying to sign him.
“But when it comes to Arsenal, they don’t feel that the attraction there is as much as it would be at a club that was in the Champions League.”
Palace have already sold one star in the summer
Zaha would be a great addition to the team but he would not be able to replace any of our front three at the moment.
The Ivorian would provide cover to our attackers but he would want to start games regularly after impressing at Selhurst Park.

“Maybe the time has come” – Liverpool stalwart opens up about chances of landing Ballon d’Or
Latest Liverpool news: Van Dijk believes a defender can win the Ballon d’Or
The former Southampton defender was possibly the best centre-back in the world last season and won the PFA Player of the Year award.
Van Dijk made our defence one of the best in Europe, and the Dutch defender was asked about winning the Ballon d’Or, an award that has been lifted mostly by attackers in recent years:
“It’s an honour if people are talking about it, but what can I do? I have no influence on anything. The people that have an influence on it, they have to decide who’s going to win it.”
The Liverpool star added that he had a great season last time around and wanted an even better campaign in the coming months.
The Dutchman was reminded that the last defender to win the award was Fabio Cannavaro in 2016, and Van Dijk believed that things could change:
“Maybe now, I don’t know. I can understand the fact that normally strikers or No.10s win these kind of awards because it’s more attractive to see. But maybe the time has come to change it.”
Van Dijk in a battle to land the honour
The Dutch defender has been supreme since joining from St. Mary’s and should improve further in the coming seasons.
It will be interesting to see who wins the Ballon d’Or this time. Lionel Messi won the La Liga title with Barcelona while Cristiano Ronaldo won the Nations League and the Serie A title.
