Two Celtic players have been nominated to be named as Scotland’s player of the year.

The Hoops’s first team duo of Scott Brown and James Forrest have been nominated for the honour, along with Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd and Hibernian midfielder John McGinn.

The nominees were announced a short time ago on the PFA Scotland Twitter account.

Brown will be looking to win his second player of the year award, as he previously won the gong in 2009, and won the young player accolade in 2007.

Forrest will be looking to win his first senior player of the year award, after winning the young player equivalent in 2012.

The players have been mainstays for the Hoops this season, with Brown making 51 appearances and Forrest 52, as the Hoops aim to clinch another domestic treble.

Football Insider verdict

It is not a shock to see who has been nominated for the awards, as Forrest and Brown have been the Hoops’ best players this season, Boyd has scored plenty of goals and spearheaded the Kilmarnock revival whilst McGinn has been the lynchpin of a Hibernian side which is in the hunt to finish runner-up in the Scottish Premiership table in it’s first season back in the top league in Scotland. If you are looking for an early favourite, it has got to be Brown, as he has shown the most consistency whilst Forrest, after a blistering start to the season, has fallen out of form in the past few weeks, whilst Brown has stayed at his excellent best.
