Scott Sinclair led Celtic in collecting all individual honours at the Scottish Player of the Year gala.

The 28-year old English forward was crowned Best Player in a poll organised by the Scottish Professional Footballers’ Association.

Sinclair received his award Sunday night in Glasgow fighting off competition from team mates Moussa Dembele and Stuart Armstrong among others.

In his first season at Celtic, after arriving from Aston Villa last summer, Sinclair scored 25 goals as the club clinched its sixth consecutive league title.

Celtic’s dominance of the league was illustrated at the awards ceremony, as Kieran Tierney (Young Player), Moussa Dembele (Best Goal) and Brendan Rogers (Best Manager) collected the remaining three individual awards.
