Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was voted Premiership player of the year by his peers in a poll organized by Scotland’s Professional Footballers Association.

Griffiths, 25, (below right) took the prize at an awards night in Glasgow last night (Sunday, May 1) ahead of fellow nominees Jonny Hayes of Aberdeen and Dundee duo Kane Hemmings and Greg Stewart.

His Celtic teammate Kieran Tierney (below left), an 18-year-old left back who broke into the first team this season, won the young player of the year award.

Rangers scooped a hat trick of awards. Captain Lee Wallace (below) was voted championship player of the year, Mark Warburton was named manager of the year and Barrie McKay’s strike against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final was goal of the season.
