Kieran Tierney won the Premiership Player of the Month award in October for the first time in his career and put it down to hard work in training.
After the news was announced, Tierney took to Sky Sports to explain what it mean to him and what it would inspire him to do next.

“It’s my first one, I’m delighted with it,” Tierney said.
“It’s obviously a hard thing to get, you need to perform every game,” he added.
Asked what he would do next, the player said, “Keep working hard as I’ve always done, go to training every day, work hard, try and impress and hopefully, at the weekend, play well.”
Tierney has been in fine form for Celtic this month, with a goal against Aberdeen and an excellent performance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League amongst the highlights.
He also captained Scotland in their friendly against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
The award is just one of many that Tierney has picked up in his short career.
He has been voted as Scotland’s young player of the year in the last two seasons, and picked up the same award from Scotland’s football writers.
Tierney and Celtic return to Premier League action after the international break this weekend, with a lunchtime trip to play Ross County.
The Hoops then visit Paris to take on PSG on their penultimate Champions League group game, and Tierney will be looking to impress on the big stage against one of the best teams in Europe.
In the latest Celtic news, Brendan Rodgers wants Scotland to play Kieran Tierney in his natural position of left-back.
