    Stefan Johansen is Celtic's Player of the Year

  • STEFAN Johansen has been named as Celtic’s Player of the Year.

    The Norwegian midfielder scooped the top award on a prestigious night at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow, collecting his prize in front of a capacity crowd of team-mates, management and supporters.

    The 24-year-old was handed the top accolade as voted for by the Celtic support, after a successful season where he has bagged 12 goals and has been ever-present in the Bhoys' attack.

    Johansen’s PoTY award was his second of the night, having shared the Players' Player of the Year with the Celtic captain Scott Brown.

    After the third hat-trick of his Celtic career against Dundee United earlier today, Leigh Griffiths picked up the top goalscorer award, having struck 18 times so far this season.

    Jason Denayer was named as Young Player of the Year, with the Belgian taking home the prize after a successful debut season in Paradise.

    Elsewhere, Kelly Clark won the inaugural Women’s Player of the Year award, while Development Squad captain Eoghan O’Connell picked up the Academy Player of the Year in recognition of his efforts for both the Development Squad and the Celtic First team this season.

    There was a case of déjà vu when Kris Commons was awarded the Goal of the Season for the second year in a row, in recognition of his strike against Rangers in the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup, presented by QTS.

    Finally, Club Director Eric Riley was given a warm applause as he collected his special recognition award for his services to the club.
