RYAN Kent says his double nomination for the PFA Scotland Awards proves he made the right decision moving to Rangers.

The winger joined from Liverpool on loan in July and feels Scotland has seen the best of him, culminating in nominations for both PFA Scotland Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year.

The Awards are voted for by fellow pros across the leagues and Kent isn’t surprised by the impact he has managed to have at Ibrox.

Speaking to RangersTV he said: “This feels like a great achievement within itself just to be nominated for both awards.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed myself here this season and to be nominated for these awards is the reward for working hard this season.

“It is a great feeling. I was always hoping to get good things out of this season and on a personal level it has been a good year.

“When I first joined I thought I could make a good impact on the team coming into the season and I have been working really hard to brush up areas of my game.

“Hopefully I have had a good impact on the team and a good impact across the season.

“A couple of players from opposition teams have mentioned how well I have played this season and what type of player I have been to come up against, which is nice.

“I have had a lot of good exposure up here, domestically and in Europe this season.

“To be given the chances I have by Steven Gerrard I am really grateful for and it has proved dividends.”

Alfredo Morelos is also up for the Player of the Year gong and Kent understands why the Colombian has been nominated by his fellow pros.

He continued:

“Alfredo has been fantastic for us this year; he has stepped up in a number of games when we have needed a player to produce a bit of magic.

“He is someone we can always rely on to always be there and score goals. He is a great player to play alongside.”
