Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths has been nominated for both PFA Scotland award

Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths has been nominated for both PFA Scotland award

Aberdeen's Niall McGinn, Leigh Griffiths of Hibernian, Inverness Caledonian Thistle's Andrew Shinnie and Michael Higdon of Motherwell are the four contenders for the award.

The award has been dominated in recent times by Celtic, who have provided the winners in eight of the past 10 years.

No player from Hibernian, Inverness or Motherwell has ever been PFA Scotland's Player of the Year.

Jim Bett was the last Aberdeen player to be voted best by his peers when he claimed the prize in 1990.

Griffiths, who is on loan at Hibs from Wolves, has also been nominated for the Young Player of the Year.

Victor Wanyama of Celtic and Dundee United pair Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven are also on the short-list.

The winners will be announced and presented with their awards at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on Sunday, 5 May.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
