Gers' forward would have been 'unbelievable' at Leeds United says BBC pundit; Rangers fan who taunted Celtic's Scott Brown over sister who died from cancer to be banned for life and Bolton Wanderers offer contract to former Rangers striker.

Gers' forward would have been 'unbelievable' at Leeds

BBC pundit and former Coventry City and Leeds United striker, Noel Whelan, has said new Rangers signing Ryan Kent, would have been "unbelievable" had he joined the Elland Road club.

Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan said: "It would have been unbelievable for Leeds to have got Ryan Kent and Nketiah.

“If Leeds had wanted him, they could have got him as they have money in the bank after their summer transfer activity.

“We needed a centre-forward after selling Kemar Roofe, and that was the priority. We have an abundance of wingers and, in the end, going for Nketiah was probably the right decision.

“Could we have got both? It would have been brilliant. I’ve watched a lot of Ryan Kent and he is a top talent. He’s young and is only going to get better, so Rangers have got a real player, there.

“Was it unbelievable for Bielsa to change his mind after such a huge bid? You could say that. Only time will tell and the proof is in where Leeds finish in the league.”
