Victor Wanyama and Fraser Forster were among the honours at last night’s Clydesdale Bank SPL Awards Ceremony in Glasgow.
Wanyama was voted Young Player of the Year by a panel of experts with Forster awarded Save of the Season from the game against Dundee on February 24.
The top awards of the night went to Leigh Griffiths as Player of the Year with Motherwell’s Stuart McCall picking up the managers award, with the former winning lots of first goal scorer bets with a Unibet bonus code.
Describing Wanyama’s contribution the SPL noted: “ The 21-year-old Kenyan has become a mainstay of the team and his performances have been superb this season. Wanyama helped Celtic win the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, with six goals to his name.
On Forster’s save against Dundee the SPL said: “A shortlist of the best saves of the season were considered by our panel of goalkeepers and Forster’s fantastic save from Gary Harkins’ strike was selected.”
Also among the awards was former Celt Graham Carey with his goal for St Mirren against Hearts on February 27 getting the goal of the season.
As the transfer window prepares to open former Celt Paul Lawson could be on his way to Motherwell after an impressive debut season in the SPL for Ross County.
Motherwell boss Stuart McCall said: “I didn’t know much about Lawson until this season but he’s a good passer, a good player and I believe he wants to come back to the central belt.
On Sunday Neil Lennon will collect his award as Manager of the Year from the Football Writers Association.
