PFA Scotland Annual Awards Dinner 2016
Leigh Griffiths was crowned Player of the Year last night at the annual PFA Awards in Glasgow.
Voted for by his peers, the striker took the prize ahead of fellow nominees Jonny Hayes of Aberdeen and Dundee duo Kane Hemmings and Greg Stewart.
There was success too for Griffiths Parkhead team mate Kieran Tierney. The 18 year old left back, who broke into the first team this season, picked up Young Player of the Year.
It was an equally successful evening for Old Firm rivals Rangers, who scooped a hat trick of awards.
Ibrox skipper Lee Wallace was voted Championship Player of the Year, Mark Warburton was Manager of the Year while Barrie McKay’s strike against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final saw him lift Goal of the Season.
In League 1, Dunfermline’s high scoring hitman Faissal El Bakhtaoui came out on top while Nathan Austin of East Fife was Player of the Year for League 2.
Special Merit Award on the night was presented to Show Racism the Red Card.
