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.

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
