Keith Lasley Does Not Agree With Ryan Kent Beating David Turnbull to Young POTY

Keith Lasley absolutely does not agree with Ryan Kent beating David Turnbull to the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award.

The Motherwell coach did not hold back in his reaction to the Rangers winger being crowned the best young player in Scotland last night.

Kent beat Turnbull, Jake Hastie and Lewis Ferguson as other nominees to get the award.

But Lasley believes that’s the wrong decision – and insists Turnbull deserved it as he’s the best young talent Scotland has produced in a generation.

High praise:

That’s a bold statement considering the award isn’t confined to young Scottish players and Kieran Tierney has won the award three years on the trot.

Kent has scored six and assisted four in 35 games this season, excelling as part of Steven Gerrard’s team.

But Turnbull has a better return in less games for Motherwell, scoring 13 and assisting three in 26 games for a team struggling in the bottom six for most of the campaign.

The award is voted for by the players though so the award winners should be an accurate reflection of who has been best this season.

Do you believe Kent deserved to win over Turnbull?
