RYAN Kent thanked the Rangers fans for bringing out the best in him after they voted him Young Player of the Year.

The 22-year-old has shone in his loan season from Liverpool and believes the Light Blues’ support have seen him peak in Glasgow.

His displays at Ibrox have won plaudits from a far and the winger thinks his performances have been so good because of the welcome he received when he arrived at the Gers this summer.

Speaking to RangersTV he said: “It means an awful lot to me, especially after the season I had last year which was quite a difficult season and I didn’t really get much out of it.

“So to come into this year and sort of revive my early career means an awful lot.

“A special mention has got to go out to all the fans and especially those who voted.

“The fans have been massively important to me settling here, they have given me a lot confidence in my games, especially to be able to go and express myself going into every game.

“Going into every game I have been really positive and hopefully I have raised some bums off seats with my style of play.

“I was hoping I would make an impact here going into the season, I am always optimistic.

“But I think it has gone better than I probably thought it would but I would have liked to have achieved more, domestically in the league winning trophies. On a personal level though I think it has been a good season for me.”
