5 things we spotted at Rangers training as Ryan Kent smiles through Leeds transfer speculation

Allan McGregor is back in contention to start against Killie, after an injury hit start to the season.
The 38-year-old hasn’t played since the opening day win over Aberdeen, but he was involved at Auchenhowie and could be back between the posts against Killie.
But Jon McLaughlin has proven to be a more than capable deputy – could his spotless start to the Premiership season mean McGregor has a battle for the No.1 jersey?
Kent smiles through the rumours
It emerged this week that Kent was the subject of a bid from Leeds United, but the offer was swiftly rejected by Rangers.
Gerrard said pre-match: “We have had contact from Leeds and an opening bid has been really strongly rejected.
“They are way, way off with that opening bid. That’s the truth and the reality. He’s a player who is not for sale.”
If the rumours are affecting the winger he didn’t show it, with Kent looking relaxed as he joked around with team-mates.
Patterson involved
It’s no secret that Nathan Patterson is highly thought of at Ibrox, and the right-back was given his first call-up to the Scotland under-21 squad on Friday.
The 18-year-old has yet to see any action this season but he’s been training with the first team squad and could get his chance in the coming weeks.
Itten not shy
Cedric Itten was brought in to provide a physical presence up-front against stubborn defences and he could well be called upon for this one.
The Swiss striker came off the bench in Rangers’ last three games, and with Alfredo Morelos unimpressive in the draw with Livi he’ll be pushing for a start.
The striker was certainly heavily involved in the session, and could be seen talking with Connor Goldson and Filip Helander.
Pensive Gerrard
No-one will be more aware than the Rangers manager of how important Saturday’s game is.
A win would leave them nine points ahead of Celtic, with Neil Lennon’s side not in action until the evening.
In recent seasons though they’ve struggled against defensively solid teams, as epitomised by the draw at Livingston last time out.
Rangers did beat Killie at Ibrox last season, but that was one of only three home league wins over the Ayrshiremen since 2011.
Gerrard knows they can’t afford any slips this time.
