0

SCOTT BROWN and his Celtic team-mate James Forrest will battle it out for the PFA Scotland Player of the Year award.

The Hoops duo will face competition from Kilmarnock veteran striker Kris Boyd and Hibs midfielder John McGinn.

Brown is being tipped to win the award, but he previously insisted Forrest would get his vote.

Rugby Park attacker Boyd, 34, currently leads the Premiership scoring charts with 16 goals.

The Celtic skipper last won the Player’s Player of the Year award in 2009 while winger Forrest is enjoying an excellent campaign and has claimed 16 goals.

McGinn has been a vital part of the Easter Road side that is battling for second in their first season back in the top flight.

Scott Sinclair is the current holder of the award, with Leigh Griffiths winning it the year before.

Parkhead defender Kieran Tierney is up for Young Player of the Year and will face future team-mate Lewis Morgan as well as Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos and Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna.
