The PFA Scotland Player of the Year award shortlist should be announced any day now.
But who will be the four top players to make the list this year?
Here, we predict who will be on the shortlist after a strong 2018/19 season:

We’d be shocked and stunned if Morelos doesn’t make it on to the list this season. The Rangers striker has been sensational at times, scoring 29 goals in all competitions as well as registering four assists. There’s no doubting he’s been Rangers’ star player and hugely important in what Steven Gerrard has achieved this season as manager. On his day, Morelos may be the best striker in Scotland so it’s only right he’s recognised here. We’re not sure if he wins it, but the Colombia should definitely be among the contenders.

It’s been some 2018/19 season for Forrest. The Celtic winger has been an ever present under Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon, scoring 17 goals and assisting 11 in 44 appearances. He’s not just scored goals though, he’s popped up at important times for Celtic, including the Betfred Cup semi-final against Hearts, a breakthrough goal v Hibs recently and a winner against Rangers too.
If there’s one man who has been just as important at Kilmarnock as Steve Clarke it’s Power. The Irishman is coming to end of his second season with Killie and he’s shown he’s now well adjusted to Scottish football. Appearing 40 times for the surprise package of the campaign, Power is the leading man in Killie’s midfield and when he doesn’t play it’s very noticeable. Kilmarnock may yet get a European spot this season and have shown up very well in big games against Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen – with Power a big reason for that. He’s an outside shout to make the list, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the league recognised his importance to a tough Killie team.

McGregor is a cert to make the list after asserting himself as one of Celtic’s most influential players this season. He very rarely plays bad and has produced top performances in some of Celtic’s biggest games of the campaign. On top of that, he’s excelled in a number of different positions and that won’t be lost on the players he goes up against.
