Scottish Football Fans Shocked By Greg Stewart’s Player of the Year Nomination

Scottish Football Fans Shocked By Greg Stewart’s Player of the Year Nomination

PFA Scotland has announced its chosen nominees for this season’s Player of the Year Award but not everyone agrees with their picks.

As we told you earlier today, Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths was given the nod alongside Aberdeen’s Jonny Hayes and Dundee duo Kane Hemmings and Greg Stewart.

Griffiths has 38 goals to his name in all competitions this season and remains the hot favourite to win the award for the first time.

Hemmings has an impressive 25 goals to his name, whilst Hayes has been an important part of Aberdeen’s title challenge.
