Ally McCoist makes hilarious four letter Ryan Kent blunder on TV

Ally McCoist, who has gone down a hit when it comes to commentating, makes a hilarious four letter Ryan Kent blunder on live TV.

The former Rangers striker and manager has proven himself to be one of the most best in the business and has really been a big deal when reporting for Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon.

Though, even when on top form, McCoist was caught in a live gaffe when on air ahead of Rangers’ Europa League clash with Royal Antwerp on Thursday.

The pundit was on BT Sport reading through the starting line-up for the last 32 first leg which ended in a thrilling 4-3 win for the Scottish Premiership side.

The seven-goal thriller in Belgium saw Borna Barisic’s two second-half penalties help the visitors emerge victorious ahead of return leg next Thursday.

McCoist was talking up Steven Gerrard’s decision to make changes on the flanks with Ryan Kent dropping to the bench.

The 24-year-old has been an ever-present figure throughout the league season, though on this occasion, Scott Arfield was brought into the starting lineup.

This was mentioned by Ally McCoist, who was talking about the Ryan Kent decision by Gerrard, but then suffered a slip of the tongue moment, which didn’t go unnoticed.

He was heard saying: “I’m not that surprised by Ryan Kant’s omission.”

McCoist was quick to correct himself with “Kent” but host Darrell Currie wasn’t going to let him get away with it so lightly.

He pulled him up on the mistake then added: “It was close, it was very, very close, but I think we got away with it.”

Kent came on as a sub just before half time to help his side produce the superb win.

Peter Lovenkrands (former Rangers striker) said:Rangers are big favourites to go through now and away wins in Europe are never easy. They did concede very sloppy goals which is unusual this season but it could just be a one-off. Personnel for the next few weeks is going to be the main thing Gerrard’s going to be looking at.”

Man of the match: Borna Barisic

Speaking to BT Sport, Rangers midfielder Steven Davis said: “First half we didn’t feel quite at it but I felt we improved in the second half and exploited the spaces that were there.

“The most important thing was the reaction to the goals, credit to the boys for coming back into the game. I thought our attitude tonight was brilliant and we’ve got a good result to take back to Ibrox now.”

On the penalty he conceded: “I was a little surprised [the penalty was given] I think the boy was a little bit clever with the way he went over.”

What the manager said…

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard: “I’m obviously very pleased with the outcome of the game in terms of the result. I think the boys showed amazing character to fight for the right result.

“It was a crazy match. I’m sure the neutrals enjoyed it but as a coach I’ll be looking into it because we had too many issues defensively.

“The goals we’ve conceded are poor from our point of view. There is certainly work and a lot of improving to do.

“At this level, you get punished a lot more.

“We’ve put ourselves in a promising position and it’s very difficult to win away from home.

“So there’s a lot of me that’s pleased and proud but there’s still things going around in my head about needing to improve defensively.”

“James never comes off if he doesn’t have to so that is a concern,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

“Let’s just hope the scan news is more positive than negative.

“Kemar’s got another calf injury, which is a concern. He’s getting too many of them at the moment so we might get someone to look at that in particular.”
