If someone puts his ears near Anfield, it would be only one song that is making the noise. The Reds are in the final of the Champions League for two consecutive years and the way they did was nothing but true heroics. Liverpool were 3-0 down at the end of the first leg at Camp Nou and everyone thought that Barcelona would easily pass through into the final. Though things didn’t go the way all anticipated. Despite the absence of star players like Salah and Firmino, Jurgen Klopp never seemed out of confidence. Liverpool dragged on Origi and Shaqiri to fill the void and what a night they had.
Origi started the slaughter and ended with ultimate cleverness. Liverpool went through the Blaugrana giants Barcelona into the final singing,‘You’ll never walk alone.’
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was also present at Anfield cheering for his home side. Gerrard had been sensational for Liverpool in his days and now he is the coach of Rangers.
Under Steven Gerrard, Rangers have made significant progress this term, which no one could ever imagine. Though they have failed to clinch silverware for another year, they were tough and handy at times. The gaffers have sanctioned an array of new signings during the past two transfer windows. A few out of them have done a commendable and well-suited job, taking the consideration that it was their first season at Ibrox. Liverpool loanee Ryan Kent is one such name who has maintained his quality throughout the campaign. His form earned applause and appreciation from the supporters as well as the gaffer who reiterated his desire to keep hold of the youngster for a longer span.
However, the attacker is drawing interest from England too and Liverpool’s reported £12m asking fee would be too much for Rangers due to their financial limitations. However, the latest twist in the tale has yet to come. It must make fans optimistic that Gerrard’s personal intervention into the transfer window may trigger yet another potential loan deal using his influence back in his homeland.
According to sources, the iconic Liverpool midfielder is set to visit the Reds’ Melwood Training Ground and speak to Jurgen Klopp about the same. It is reported that the winger is enjoying his football in Scotland but at the same time he is aware of the uncertainty over his future. He still has years left on his Anfield contract and so is unable to decide his next move without the club’s consent.

Kent has six goals and six assists for his tally in 23 Premiership games this season. One may not get the wrong vibes when seeing those numbers. The numbers do not reflect his true influence and contribution so far down the left-hand side of the pitch. His pace, power, directness, tricky footwork and mazy runs were the keyholes that locked every opposition defense. It helped the Bears create constant goal-bound threats. He is energetic and his high work ethics are exemplary, which have often worked in favor of Rangers while defending deep.
