Collymore wrote in the People: "While I congratulate Gareth Bale for the spectacular moments that have helped him land a hat-trick of prizes from fellow players and football writers, he has not been the best, most consistent player this term. Luis Suarez has.
"His performances and strike rate have been fantastic. But he won nothing. He was voted into the PFA team of the year so his peers clearly acknowledged his performances. But it seems most of them thought Bale had been better.
"And from all the Football Writers' Association members, Suarez picked up only two votes.
"That is because most of them cast their vote after his stupid bite on Branislav Ivanovic, so I understand why they would not see him worthy of their end-of-year accolade.
"But when I was voting in my playing days I would simply judge people on how they had performed on the pitch.
"These days I'm not sure that's the case."
