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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
