PFA Scotland chief Fraser Wishart has explained why no Celtic players were nominated for the Player of the Year award.
The Glasgow giants were overlooked for this season’s individual prize despite easily winning the Scottish Premier League title – a decision branded ‘abysmal’ by manager Neil Lennon.
None of Fraser Forster, Victor Wanyama, Kris Commons, Kelvin Wilson or Gary Hooper made the PFA shortlist with Wishart suggesting there were too many players who contributed to narrow it down to one or two.
"They didn't quite make it into the top four but I think it reflects the team effort Celtic have had because they have so many good players this season."
"I think seven players is about as wide a spread as we have had. So many Celtic players had an excellent season that the votes were spread across them."
