PFA Scotland Premiership Player & Young Player 2017 Nominees

PFA Scotland is delighted to announce the nominees for this season’s Premiership Player and Young Player of the Year Awards 2017.

Players at every club across the country have had their say and this year’s nominees for Premiership Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year are as follows:

Premiership Player of the Year        

Stuart Armstrong        Celtic

Moussa Dembele        Celtic

Jonny Hayes                Aberdeen

Scott Sinclair               Celtic

Young Player of the Year

Jason Cummings         Hibernian

Moussa Dembele        Celtic

Patrick Roberts            Celtic

Kieran Tierney             Celtic

The players were joined by the Old Course Hotel Bear - the Old Course Hotel Golf Resort & Spa are sponsoring Sunday's After Show Party - for the photshoot at our offices in Woodside Place.

Premiership champions and League Cup winners Celtic have a hat trick of nominations for both categories – with Moussa Dembele in with a chance of a double. Stuart Armstrong is a previous Young Player nominee (2014) from his time at Dundee United.

It is back-to-back Player of the Year nominations for Aberdeen’s Jonny Hayes, off the back of helping the Pittodrie side to this season’s Scottish Cup Final.

Last year’s PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year winner Kieran Tierney will be looking to make it two in-a-row. He is joined on this year’s nominations list by teammates Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts.

Hibernian striker Jason Cummings, whose 19 goals helped the Easter Road side clinch the Championship title, also makes a return to the Young Player shortlist having lost out to Tierney last season. He is the only non-Premiership nominee.

The overall winners will be announced on Sunday 7th May at PFA Scotland’s annual Awards Dinner at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow.
