Barrie McKay’s Stunner Against Hibs Wins Ladbrokes Championship Goal of the Season

Barrie McKay’s Stunner Against Hibs Wins Ladbrokes Championship Goal of the Season

Barrie McKay has picked up another accolade this season after coming out on top in the Ladbrokes Championship Goal of the Season poll.

The league sponsors yesterday asked fans to vote for their best goal of the season in the second tier.

Rangers and Hibs both dominated the vote, seeing two players from each side make the final before McKay came out on top.

Three of the final goals in the poll came in the same fixture, with McKay and Tavernier appearing on the shortlist for their goals against Hibs, while Jason Cummings earned some recognition for his strike against Rangers last November.

Martin Boyle deserves special mention too for his stunning volley against Livingston in April.

But it’s all about McKay’s goal, as he gained the most amount of votes to win the Championship Goal of the Season award:

That goal came in Rangers’ 3-2 defeat to Hibs in April, three days after he hit a brilliant, long-range goal against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

And fans will be hoping he can replicate that against the Hibees this weekend when they face off in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden.

As evidenced with the above goal, McKay has previous for scoring against Hibs and hitting the net at Hampden so many will be looking to him to provide the inspiration tomorrow.
