Steven Gerrard Explains Why Rangers Have Contested SFA Charge on Ryan Kent

Steven Gerrard Explains Why Rangers Have Contested SFA Charge on Ryan Kent

Steven Gerrard has explained why Rangers have contested the SFA’s charge of Ryan Kent for his push on Scott Brown.

There were several flashpoints in Sunday’s Old Firm game between Celtic and Rangers at Celtic Park.

And Kent’s push on Brown was one of the most controversial as Kent avoided punishment for what looked like a very strong push on Brown.

Pictures actually show that it may have been a punch and Kent was lucky not to be sent off for the incident that happened straight after Celtic’s winning goal.

But the SFA issued the on-loan Liverpool winger with a Notice of Complaint this week and offered a two-game ban, which Rangers have contested.

And now Gerrard has explained why they decided to do that:

Kent’s hearing with the SFA is due to take place today, where a decision will be made on whether the ban is upheld, added to or quashed altogether.

If it’s upheld, he’ll miss Rangers’ game against Motherwell at the weekend before missing the first game of the split too.
