Steven Gerrard was delighted by another 'top drawer' performance from Ryan Kent in Rangers' 3-1 victory over Hearts on Sunday.

The on-loan Liverpool winger, who played the full game, helped his team on their way to three points with the opening goal three minutes into the encounter at Ibrox.

“His performances have been really good and they’ve got stronger as we’ve gone on. The last two have been right up there in the top drawer,” said Rangers boss and Reds legend Gerrard.

“He deserved man of the match today, he deserved his goal and I’m pleased for him.

“We have to credit Rangers for giving Ryan the opportunity and also thank Liverpool for letting us use him, because at the moment it’s working for both of us.”

Ovie Ejaria also started the match against the league leaders and featured for 66 minutes.
