Celtic defender Gary Caldwell was named as the Scottish Premier League Player of the Season on Monday, just a day after he scooped the Scottish Football Writers' award.

The manager of the season award went to Csaba Laszlo for his work in keeping Hearts in the top three for most of the season as dominant Celtic and Rangers slugged away in their own inter-city title race. Hibernian striker Steven Fletcher picked up the accolade of young player of the year.

Caldwell said: "It's great, it's always nice to get awards. It's good to get some reward for your personal performances. But football is a team game and there's still a reward I want for the team at the end of the season. That would really cap my season off.

"I think it would be my worst season here if we don't win the league because we have won it for the last two seasons." After Celtic's weekend derby loss left Rangers two points clear in the race for the championship with three games remaining.
