Rangers transfer news: Former England star Darren Bent ‘100 per cent’ wants Ibrox move

Darren Bent has told talkSPORT he ‘100 per cent’ wants to join Steven Gerrard’s Rangers revolution.

Bent, the striker, is currently without a club having being released by Derby at the end of last season. He spent the second half of 2017/18 on loan at Burton Albion, and he has been training with the Brewers since the summer.

Despite being offered a pay-as-you-play deal by Nigel Clough’s side Bent remains officially unattached, and he joined talkSPORT in the studio on Tuesday.

Discussing various subjects, Bent’s own future was raised, and Jim White asked the 34-year-old if he’d be keen on heading north of the border to sign for Rangers.

“100 per cent!” he replied. “You’re talking about one of the biggest clubs in football in Rangers.

“To get the opportunity to go up there and play – definitely!”

Bent was a team-mate of Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard’s on the international stage, making 13 appearances for England between 2006 and 2011, while one of his most famous goals came in a defeat of Gerrard’s Liverpool – the beach ball incident of 2009.

The Gers have started the season brightly under their new manager, progressing to the Europa League group stage. However, they lost to Celtic last time out in the first Old Firm derby of the season to show just how much work Gerrard has still to do.
