Adam Matthews: Performances this season recognised by peers

None of the champions' squad made it onto the four-man shortlist for the Player of the Year award, an outcome manager Neil Lennon last week branded "abysmal".

But three Celtic defenders - Adam Matthews, Kelvin Wilson and Charlie Mulgrew - and midfielder Victor Wanyama polled enough votes to make the team line-up.

Motherwell, on course to finish as runners-up, also have four players in the side - goalkeeper Darren Randolph, centre-half Shaun Hutchinson, midfielder Nicky Law and striker Michael Higdon.

Higdon, the SPL's top scorer, is included alongside his three fellow nominees for the individual award - Hibernian's Leigh Griffiths, Aberdeen's Niall McGinn and Andrew Shinnie of Inverness.

Team of the Year: Randolph, Matthews, Hutchinson, Wilson, Mulgrew, Wanyama, Law, Shinnie, Griffiths, McGinn, Higdon.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
