Captain Lee Wallace has been voted Player of the Year by the club's fans at a ceremony tonight in Glasgow. The full-back, who had earlier picked up the John Greig Special Achievement Award, picked up the award after a phenomenal season in which he has lifted two pieces of silverware already with a Scottish Cup final on the horizon.

9 goals and thirteen assists from 47 appearances represent a fantastic return from the ex-Hearts man as he led from the front for Mark Warburton's side in their quest to return to the Premiership.

Speaking at the awards bash he said:"I'm over the moon to win this award, but there could have been any number of players up here winning the award."

Wallace has been crucial as Warburton has tried to gel a new side together as quickly as possible and will have undoubtedly been a huge influence on many of the players new to the club or Scottish football.

In addition to Player of the Year award there were also awards for Barrie McKay, James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn.  McKay picked up the Young Player of the Year Award, Tavernier's breathtaking volley in the Challenge Cup final was named Goal of the Season and Waghorn lifted the Players' Player of the Year and the Sam English Bowl for being the club's top goalscorer this season.
