HERALD and Evening Times readers have chosen their player and flop of the season in the Scottish Premiership.

There was a standout winner for each category, with Celtic winger Scott Sinclair being named the best player and ex-Rangers midfielder Joey Barton the biggest flop. 

Sinclair received 38% of the votes to finish ahead of teammates Stuart Armstrong in second and third-placed Moussa Dembele in a Celtic-dominated poll. HeraldScotland: Scott Sinclair takes a bow after his third of the 5-0 win for Celtic which clinched the Premiership title

Rangers striker Kenny Miller picked up 11% of the ballot to finish in fourth, with the Ibrox club yet to offer the veteran an extension to his current deal that expires at the end of the season. 

The less coveted crown of flop of the year has gone to Barton, now of Burnley, who picked up a landslide 52% of the votes.

Barton had his Light Blues contract terminated in November after a training ground bust-up with former boss Mark Warburton, having played just seven games for the club.  

His former teammate Joe Garner received more than a quarter of the votes after scoring just five league goals since arriving from Preston in a £1.8 million deal last summer.
