The England international scored 31 times in 51 games in all competitions in his breakthrough season at White Hart Lane under Mauricio Pochettino last term.
Kane failed to score in his opening six Premier League games this season which prompted some to suggest that the Spurs striker was a one-season wonder.
However, the 22-year-old became the first player to break the 20-goal mark in the Premier League this season on Sunday as he scored twice in Tottenham’s 3-0 victory over Bournemouth.
Former Spurs forward Crooks was quick to hold his hands up after Kane netted his 20th and 21st goals of the season.
Crooks told BBC Sport: “So Spurs have narrowed the gap to five points on Leicester again after some exceptional finishing by Kane.
“Some of you may remember that I said at the start of the season that I had fears for him with regard to second-season syndrome but I need not have worried.
“The striker is looking every bit the real deal.”
Kane’s double helped Tottenham shave Leicester City’s lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points with seven games remaining.
