CELTIC’S 38-goal striker Leigh Griffiths and teenage defender Kieran Tierney are likely to be honoured in the PFA awards at the weekend.
Hitman Griffiths is in the running for the PFA Scotland’s Player of the Year award which was won last time out by his team-mate Stefan Johansen.
The 25-year-old has been in superb goalscoring form this term and has the opportunity to become the first Hoops player to hit 40 in one campaign since the legendary Henrik Larsson achieved the feat 12 years ago.
Dundee forwards Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings and Aberdeen winger Jonny Hayes make up the four-man shortlist, with the winner announced on Sunday.
Eighteen-year-old defender Tierney is nominated in the Young Player of the Year award.
The impressive full-back, who won his first Scotland cap in the 1-0 win over Denmark at Hampden last month, has established himself at Parkhead this season since taking over from Honduran ace Emilio Izaguirre.
Hibs duo John McGinn and Jason Cummings plus Barrie McKay, of “Rangers”, have also been named, but Tierney is considered a stick-on for the honour.
Griffiths won Celtic’s Player of the Year last Sunday and Tierney picked up Young Player of the Year at the same awards.
Tom Rogic won Celtic’s Goal of the Season for his sensational last minute winner at Rugby Park.
