The Seagull's shot-stopper was awarded on Monday night with the Professional Footballer's Australia (PFA) Men's Footballer of the year, two days after helping Albion beat Premier League heavyweights Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 at the Amex.
It was the 27-year-old's second Player of the Year award, his first coming in 2015, while he was playing for Club Brugge.
The goalkeeper received the award at an 'intimate player-led presentation', in which he pipped fellow Seagull Aaron Mooy to the award.
He told the Socceroos he was 'living the dream' and that it was 'nice to be recognised' by his peers, mentioning not only his efforts with the national team, but with Brighton and Hove Albion also.
Speaking on twitter, the goalkeeper said that he was 'honoured', and looked towards 'this next journey towards bringing our nation even more collective success.'
Ryan will now be looking to help Australia qualify for the 2022 World Cup, with a game against Nepal on Thursday.
