Bradley Dack has made quite an impression since arriving from Gillingham on 27th June 2017.

The attacker scored 18 goals in his first season at Ewood Park, finishing as the club's top scorer as Rovers won promotion back to the Championship.

It's been a year to remember for Dack, and the 24-year-old has received plenty of praise from his manager and team-mates alike along the way.

Here are just a few of the best quotes about our no.23, starting with Blues boss Tony Mowbray...

“I just see it in training every day. He's a natural finisher and technically our most gifted footballer, who can shift it onto both feet and hit without thinking. Undoubtedly, he has the talent to play at the highest level." – Tony Mowbray

“Bradley is a great player and when he gets put through, you know it’s going to be a goal. He scores them in training all the time. We have a joke in training about it with him scoring against me and me stopping him from scoring, but in games you always know you can rely on him.” – David Raya

"He’s one of my good friends now, despite only knowing him a short space of time. He’s like a brother to me now. I really get on with him. I’d ring him when I was struggling with my rehab and we’d have a laugh. We’d talk about everything. He has all the talent and can certainly pull my sort of tricks off if he tried!” – Harry Chapman

“Dacky's a fantastic lad, a bit of a joker but he really turns it on when it comes to matchday. He’s been fantastic since he came in. It’s massive to have a player like him, you need them. Dacky’s got something different that others haven’t got, and when he’s on song he’s fantastic." – Elliott Bennett 

“I’ve really enjoyed playing with Dacky. He’s been different class since he walked through the door here. It’s not just his goals, it’s the way he carries the ball and gets us up the pitch. I think there’s a lot more to come from Bradley Dack.” – Danny Graham 

“I think it’s brilliant to have a player like him in your squad. He’s ready for the step up, and hopefully he can fulfil his potential at Ewood Park.” – Simon Garner

“There are a lot of important players but his all-round play is such a threat. I’ve not seen many better at using his body and taking the ball in. He’s been brilliant and is a massive player for us.” – Craig Conway

"I couldn't have done any of what I've done without my team-mates, they're been great for me. We've got a proper team here. Hopefully it can be the same next year. I'm raring to go for the new season in the Championship." - Bradley Dack
