QPR caretaker manager Chris Ramsey is not surprised by Harry Kane's success this season, having worked with the striker at Tottenham's academy.
Ramsey spent nine years coaching the youth sides at White Lane and helped Kane break into the first team under Tim Sherwood last season.
Kane joined the Spurs academy in 2009 and has flourished this term, scoring his 21st and 22nd goals of the campaign in a 2-1 Barclays Premier League win over Arsenal on Saturday.
He hasn't surprised me. Tottenham have been fantastic in giving their youngsters opportunities to play. Harry has been a very good player for a long time, I known him for a long time.
I was at Tottenham for nine years and was in charge of coaching at the academy and, along with (coaches) like John McDermott and Perry Suckling, helped bring through quite a few good youngsters.
Harry has always been very dedicated, he's a single-minded player who trains hard.He's scored over 20 goals now and he's well capable of that - he's not the kind of player who gets fazed.
