Dundee United's Robertson scoops young player prize

Dundee United's Andrew Robertson has been named the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Scotland Young Player of the Year.

The 20-year old left-back has been crowned as Scottish football's best player under the age of 23 as reward for a stellar season with the Tangerines which saw him win his first senior cap for Scotland.

Robertson beat teammates Stuart Armstrong and Ryan Gauld as well as St Johnstone striker Stevie May to the prize.

"It has been a really successful season for me but this award probably means the most to me, because the players have voted for me," said Robertson.

"Stuart and Gauldy have had amazing seasons but I am glad to win it. We have been joking since we were nominated and there was a few laughs."

But Robertson is now focusing on the Scottish Cup final which takes place at Celtic Park against Inverness on May 17.

"If we could win the Scottish Cup that would top off the most amazing season for me. We know it will be tough against St Johnstone but we will try to get the win on that day," he added.

"The Scottish Cup final will be completely different with the fans, the atmosphere and what is at stake."
