The 29-year-old was named PFA Scotland Player of the Year on Sunday evening at an awards event in Glasgow.

But Higdon's big night was marred when he was arrested in the early hours of Monday following an incident outside a nightclub.

Despite being held in police custody for several hours, the big Englishman insists that experience did not overshadow his award.

Higdon said: "Honestly, it's still the best night I've had as a footballer. It's a career high and that's all I'm thinking about, rather than any negatives. I hope other people see it like that too.

"I've had a great season and that's what I hope people remember.

"I'm annoyed at myself for getting myself into a situation like that because it's not me.

"I'm not the type of lad who goes out clubbing or to bars. I'm a country pub type of guy. I should have known better than getting into that kind of situation."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
