Predicting the PFA Scotland Player of the Year Nominees

Predicting the PFA Scotland Player of the Year Nominees

Graeme Shinnie – Aberdeen

If you’re an Aberdeen fan, there’s no doubting just how important Shinnie is to you – but is he seen as important to the rest of the Scottish game? He missed Saturday’s awful 3-0 defeat to Motherwell and his absence was definitely noticeable. Basically any time he’s missing for Aberdeen it shows on their performance. But has this been his best season for the Dons? We don’t think so. Last term, for example, he was instrumental as Aberdeen finished second in all three domestic competitions, but he didn’t make the nominee list. We doubt he’ll make it this time, but he probably deserves to be spoken about as an option given how important he is to Aberdeen.

Dylan McGeouch – Hibs

If you have McGinn on this list then you should have McGeouch, as the midfielder has been just as important, if not arguably more important, to the Hibees this season. His form earned him a Scotland call-up before injury robbed him of that, but he’s back in Neil Lennon’s team now and coming to the end of his most consistent, injury-free season yet. We wouldn’t be surprised if McGeouch ends up a surprise inclusion on the list.

Callum McGregor – Celtic

You expect players to be finding their best form around the age of 24 and that’s exactly what is happening with McGregor. He may not play every game for Celtic, but when the big matches come around, he’s normally a go-to guy for Rodgers – and that says a lot for the player. He’s got 10 goals in all competitions this season, with Hibs, Kilmarnock, Hearts, Rangers, Bayern Munich and Zenit among those unable to stop the midfielder. McGregor is another who definitely deserves recognition.

What’s your view? Who should make the list?
