Georgios Samaras: Has become a key part of the Celtic team

Celtic forward Georgios Samaras has been voted Player of the Year by the club's supporters at an awards ceremony in Glasgow.

Samaras has produced his best form with the Hoops since Neil Lennon became manager at Celtic Park, and was particularly important during the team's Champions League campaign this season.

The Young Player of the Year Award was won by Victor Wanyama, who was the only Celtic representative in the PFA Scotland short-list last week - when he was nominated in the same category.

The Celtic squad also voted for their Player of the Year, and that award was won by goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Supporters chose Tony Watt's dramatic winner in the 2-1 victory over Barcelona in November as the Celtic Goal of the Season.

This year's recipient of the Special Recognition Award was former Celtic midfielder Stiliyan Petrov.

The Aston Villa ace has been fighting a battle with leukaemia since March 2012, and the award was presented to him at his home in England.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
