Kenny Miller Makes Comparison Between Rangers Ace and Ryan Kent

Rangers’ forward Abdallah Sima is rapidly making a name for himself at the Scottish club, and according to former Rangers striker Kenny Miller, he is on track to match the impact of Ryan Kent, despite not being as technically gifted.

Kent, who spent five years at Ibrox, departed for Fenerbahce at the end of the last season after a loan spell from Liverpool. Sima, on the other hand, arrived on loan from Brighton in the summer and has become one of the success stories in the squad overhaul orchestrated by former manager Michael Beale.

Speaking about Sima’s contribution, Miller highlighted the young forward’s goal-scoring ability, noting that he has already netted 11 goals in all competitions this season. Miller drew a parallel with Kent’s performance in a similar timeframe, emphasizing Sima’s efficiency in front of goal.

In a statement quoted by the Daily Record’s live blog on December 5th, Miller said, “He went on a brilliant run and then got a double at the weekend that led to the three points. He’s got eleven goals, I mean you look that is Ryan Kent’s position. That’s where he played and how long did it take him to get eleven goals? He was probably barely touching 20 over the course of his three, four, five seasons.”

Despite acknowledging that Sima may not possess the same technical finesse as Kent, Miller commended the loanee’s attributes. “Sima is well on the way; at least he’s giving you that goal threat from that position. He’s not as talented a footballer as Ryan Kent was, that’s just a fact. He’s not as technical, but he’s quick, powerful and hungry to score goals. He’s strong in the air attacking the back post and defending set-plays, by the way. There’s a player there that when used properly, he’s been very effective.”
