CELTIC enjoyed a clean sweep at the PFA Awards tonight at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow in all the relevant categories, with Scotty Sinclair picking up the big prize as PFA Player of the Year.
Scotty arrived in August from Aston Villa and made an immediate impact at Tynecastle, coming off the bench to score a late winner. He has had a magical, wonderful season. When he runs down the wing he is as fast as lightening. He certainly makes all the Bhoys sing.
Last weekend he was the target of racist abuse at Ibrox but he faced that challenge head on and came out of the situation a winner and exposed the racists for the losers that they are.
Well down Scotty, the best signing we have had since Larsson.
Brendan Rodgers picked up the Manager of the Year Award in his first season in Scottish football. The Irishman has yet to lose a match domestically, has won the Betfred League Cup and the Premiership and in on 27 May will lead Celtic out at Hampden in the Scottish Cup Final as his time attempt to complete a Treble.
It will be an historic Treble if Rodgers’ players can avoid defeat in their final three league matches against Cup Final opponents Aberdeen, Patrick Thistle and Hearts.
Moussa Dembele won the goal of the season for the remarkable team effort at St Johnstone but he missed out on the Young Player of the Year Award which has been won by Moussa’s teammate Kieran Tierney.
Kieran had to endure a frustrating period at the end of last year when he was out of the side with an injury. He came back into the side after the winter break to pick up where he had left off with his superb early season form.
He forced his way back into the Scotland side and was one of six Celts to keep Gordon Strachan’s hopes of taking the National side to Russia alive with a great performance in the crucial win against Slovakia.
Tierney has been linked, on an almost daily basis on click bait sites and ill-informed English newspapers with a move to the Premier League.
He has no interest in leaving Celtic anytime soon.
Celtic summer signing target John McGinn won the Championship Player of the Year at the PFA Awards.
On Friday evening it was announced that young Ryan Christie, out on loan to Aberdeen, had won the Aberdeen Young Player of the Year award.
Congratulations to all of our Bhoys! Oh and remember this…
