Sir Kenny Dalglish feels Rangers winger Ryan Kent might be disappointed about being overlooked for the SFWA Player of the Year award nominations.
Four of Kent’s teammates: James Tavernier, Steven Davis, Allan McGregor and Connor Goldson were selected as nominees and Dalglish believes the former Liverpool winger was also deserving of recognition:
“Ryan Kent might feel aggrieved at being omitted as he has been excellent for large chunks of the campaign but to have so many in the frame is exactly why the Light Blues have stormed to the Premiership title.”
It’s hard to argue with the four names on the list and, as Dalglish points out, there are so many standout performers that it was inevitable that some, like Kent, would be left out.
Of course, his contribution to winning title number 55 was very important. The 24-year-old scored eight league goals and provided nine assists, and he was a crucial figure in some defining moments this season.
It is not surprising, therefore, that clubs are continuing to take a keen interest in Kent, with Leeds being touted to make another attempt to sign the Englishman in the summer.
