    Champions celebrate at Awards night

    By: Newsroom Staff on 04 May, 2014 21:16

  • CELTIC players, management and supporters gathered for the club’s annual awards ceremony in Glasgow on Sunday night.

    And it was Kris Commons who lifted the Player of the Year trophy. The award is voted for by the fans and sponsored by McEwan Fraser Legal, and just 24 hours after reaching the 30-goal mark with a double in the 5-2 victory over Aberdeen, Commons was acclaimed as Celtic’s Player of the Year.

    The Players’ Player of the Year award, sponsored by The Kitchen Depot, was a close-run contest, with Fraser Forster and Virgil van Dijk sharing the award after all the players’ votes had been counted up.

    It was a tough choice for supporters to choose their Goal of the Season, sponsored by Magners. The Champions have scored so many great goals this season, and are continuing to do so, but a shortlist of 10 was finally agreed upon. And from that, it was Kris Commons with his second award of the night who won for his brilliant strike against Shakhter Karagandy last August in the UEFA Champions League qualifier, a goal which helped Celtic reach the group stages of the competition for the second season in a row.

    And with an impressive 30 goals to his name this season, Commons also lifted the Top Goalscorer of the Season, sponsored by Ladbrokes.

    It’s been a good season for Celtic’s Youth Academy, with a number of young players promoted to Neil Lennon’s first-team squad. Darnell Fisher, who has made 13 first-team appearances this season, was named Young Player of the Year, the award sponsored by MEV Group.

    And Liam Henderson, who has just broke into the top team in the pat couple of months lifted a new award, the Academy Player of the Year, which is sponsored by Scottish Dentistry.

    And the Special Recognition Award, sponsored by Light, was presented to Celtic’s Great Wall – Fraser Forster. The goalkeeper has had an outstanding season, breaking the Scottish league clean sheet record which has stood for over 40 years.
