SKIPPER supreme Scott Brown swept the board as he picked up three honours in the Celtic Player of the Year awards in a Glasgow hotel last night.
The 32-year-old midfield powerhouse, celebrating his testimonial year, was the centre of attention once again.
Brown was a clear winner in the prestigious Player of the Year category, as voted by Hoops supporters.
He also came out on top in the Players’ Player of the Year category, underlining his pedigree among his team-mates.
And this year’s Special Recognition Award was also given to Brendan Rodgers’ onfield leader who cost a bargain £4.4million when Gordon Strachan bought him from Hibs almost 11 years ago.
Brown has made 469 appearances for the Hoops, winning seven league titles and, hopefully, an eighth this weekend. The inspirational Celt has also enjoyed three Scottish Cups and three League Cups.
And at the end of this season, on Sunday, May 20 – the day after the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell – a testimonial match between Celtic and Martin O’Neill’s Republic of Ireland side will honour the player.
Kieran Tierney was voted Young Player of the Year for a second successive season and his pulverising 40-yarder against Kilmarnock in the 5-0 League Cup romp in August was elected Goal of the Season.
Scott Sinclair picked up the Top Goalscorer of the Year honour while Anthony Ralston, currently on loan at Dundee United, was voted the Academy Player of the Year.
Natalie Ross was a popular winner of the Women’s Player of the Year.
