“Each of the departing players has given the club excellent service and will move on to the next stage in their careers with the warmest wishes and thanks of everyone at Ibrox and the Rangers Training Centre,” the Scottish giants said in a statement.

“The individuals have contributed enormously to the club‘s capture of a record 55th Scottish league title, last season’s Scottish Cup, the run to the UEFA Europa League final and qualification for the UEFA Champions League this season.”

Kent has been touted as a potential replacement for Nathan Tella, who has now returned to his parent club Southampton following his sensational loan spell at Turf Moor, where he scored 19 times.

Everton, Leeds United and Sheffield United have also been linked with the Oldham-born man, who is now a free agent.

Kent was brought to Ibrox in 2015 by former boss Steven Gerrard after coming through the youth ranks at Liverpool.

The former England Under-20 international is among a host of names to be linked with Burnley ahead of their return to the Premier League.

Moves for the likes of James Trafford, Bart Verbruggen, Raphael Guerreiro and Albert Sambi Lokonga have also been rumoured.
