Scott Sinclair: Clean sweep

Scott Sinclair headed a clean sweep of awards for Celtic after being named Scotland’s player of the year.

Brendan Rodgers was named manager of the Year while Kieran Tierney picked up the young player award.

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele made it four when his third goal in the victory over St Johnstone in February was voted goal of the season.

Sinclair has scored 25 goals in a debut season which could see Celtic clinch all three main domestic prizes and complete the season unbeaten.

The 28-year-old beat team-mates Dembele and Stuart Armstrong, as well as Aberdeen’s Jonny Hayes, in a poll of fellow professionals.

Hibernian’s John McGinn claimed the Championship player of the year award after the Scotland midfielder helped the Easter Road side win promotion and reach the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

Livingston’s Liam Buchanan won the League One player of the year award, and Shane Sutherland of Elgin City took the League Two award.

The Scotland women’s national team also won a special merit award after reaching this summer’s European Championships.
