Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew has been named PFA Scotland Player of the Year, with team-mate James Forrest scooping the Young Player prize.

Mulgrew has played an integral part in Celtic's title-winning campaign and beat Dundee United's Jon Daly, Dean Shiels of Kilmarnock and Rangers captain Steven Davis to the honour.

It has been a remarkable season for the former Wolves and Aberdeen player, who started his career at Celtic but has matured into a more accomplished player in his second spell with the club.

He won his first Scotland cap in February, playing at left-back in the 1-1 friendly draw in Slovenia.

Mulgrew also recently picked up the Scottish Football Writers' Association Player of the Year award, as well as Celtic's own prize for Player of the Year.

Forrest, meanwhile, came out on top in the PFA Young Player category ahead of Dundee United's Gary Mackay-Steven, his Tannadice team-mate Johnny Russell and Kenny McLean of St Mirren.

Celtic lost 1-0 to Dundee United on Sunday but have dominated Scottish football this season and are 20 points ahead of nearest rivals Rangers, who were deducted 10 points for entering administration in February.
