Tierney named PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year
Scotland and Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney has been voted as PFA Scotland’s Young Player of the Year.
The 19-year-old has been an integral part of the Celtic side that has dominated Scottish football this season.
His performances at club level have boosted his claims for an international place, and Tierney is already making a name for himself for his country.
Despite coming into the team at left-back, Tierney has shown his versatility by slotting in right-back for Scotland’s win over Slovenia in March.
He already has three caps to his name and will be hopeful of adding to that collection throughout the rest of the qualifying campaign.
Tierney’s Scotland and Celtic teammate, Stuart Armstrong, was pipped to the overall Player of the Year by another Celtic player, Scott Sinclair.
Hibernian's John McGinn claimed the Championship player of the year award after the Scotland midfielder helped the Easter Road side win promotion and reach the Scottish Cup semi-finals.
The Scotland women's national team also won a special merit award after reaching this summer's European Championships.
