RANGERS last night celebrated claiming a treble of awards at the PFA Scotland Player of the Year Dinner.
Manager Mark Warburton was named ‘Manager of the Year’ across all four SPFL divisions, beating competition from Ross County’s Jim McIntyre, Falkirk’s Peter Houston and Peterhead’s Jim McInally.
Captain Lee Wallace was named Championship ‘Player of the Year’ meanwhile ahead of teammate Martyn Waghorn and Hibernian duo John McGinn and Jason Cummings, meaning he has completed a personal treble of the Third Division, League One and now the Championship’s top player.
Elsewhere, Barrie McKay won ‘Goal of the Season’ for his unforgettable strike against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final on April 17, a goal which you can see below.
Speaking to Sky Sports, ‘Manager of the Year’ Warburton explained: “I’m delighted, and it is always a team award.
“It is nice to get the individual recognition but it is a team award for the players and the staff. (Fellow award winners) Lee and Barrie have been first class but they would be the first to say it is the whole team.
“Their work ethic, their application, their desire this season, has been first class, and the good news is they are getting their rewards. Sometimes, people toil away and don’t get the rewards they deserve.
“It has been a first class season for the club and for the staff, who have worked so hard behind the scenes.”
Meanwhile, Captain Lee Wallace told Sky Sports: “It’s special, and while I recognise and appreciate that the award is voted for by your opponents, what really sticks out is Rangers could have had many players up on that stage receiving this award and I think that’s a consequence of how well we have done as a team.
“We have shared some great success so far, but it’s up to us that come May 21, we make it a fantastic season.”
