The nominations for the PFA Scotland Premiership Player Of The Year award have been announced and Celtic dominate the shortlist.
— PFA Scotland (@PFAScotland) May 2, 2017
The Celtic trio of Stuart Armstrong, Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair have had excellent seasons and are joined by Aberdeen’s stand out Jonny Hayes, who has helped the Dons almost secure a second place spot over Rangers.
Celtic also dominate the Young Player category which is made up of Patrick Roberts, Kieran Tierney, Moussa Dembele and Hibernian striker Jason Cummings.
For some Hoops fans though there is one glaring omission from the senior list, voted for by professional footballers in Scotland; Scott Brown. The captain has played more than any other Celtic player across the campaign and is having one of his best ever seasons in a Celtic shirt.
His performances haven’t gone unnoticed by the Celtic support, many of whom think he deserved at least a nomination on this list.
Angry fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on him missing out…
Scott Brown not being a nominee for player of the year is a disgrace. Best season of his career IMO. ????

Sinclair, Dembele, Tierney, Armstrong, Roberts etc have been excellent. But Scott Brown's game has been next level. Deserves to be POTY.

Scottish football has been that one sided this year that the PFA POTY nominations should reflect that. Scott Brown missing out is laughable.

Well, he might not be on the list but Scott Brown's my POTY, by a country mile. No idea how the guy missed out here. https://t.co/iQDJKs0ZnN

Surprised to see Scott Brown omitted from POTY nominees. Rodgers has turned him into a different animal this season.
