Celtic winger Aiden McGeady has pulled off an awards double by winning the PFA Scotland Player Of The Year and Young Player Of The Year awards.

The 22 year old Republic of Ireland international beat off stiff competition from team mates Scott McDonald and Barry Robson and Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar to land the top awards.

McGeady has played a crucial part in Celtic's push for domestic and European honours so far this season with eight goals and countless assists for Gordon Strachan's side.

The 16-cap playmaker came through the youth ranks at Celtic before breaking into the first team under former manager Martin O'Neill and has since become a first pick for Strachan.

As well as his impressive displays in the SPL, McGeady scored his first Champions League goal earlier this season in the 1-0 win over Benfica in November.

McGeady follows in the footsteps of former Parkhead team-mate Shaun Maloney, who won both awards in a single season in 2006.

"Obviously I am delighted. I've got to give thanks to the players who voted for me," he said.

"I think my game's come on an awful lot with the help of the coaching staff and the players I'm playing with, but I think the main thing is consistency."

Hamilton manager Billy Reid capped a fantastic weekend by winning the Manager of the Year award barely a day after clinching the First Division championship and promotion to the SPL.

Reid said: "It's been a fantastic 24 hours for me. The big thing for me was obviously getting to the Premier League and this award caps it off.

"I didn't play in the SPL as a player so I've got a chance to do that as a manager and I can't wait."

Livingston striker Graeme Dorrans clinched the First Division Player of the Year award, the Second Division prize went to Airdrie's Allan Russell while Jonathan Smart of East Fife was Third Division Player of the Year.

There was also a Special Merit award in memory of the late Phil O'Donnell the Motherwell midfielder who died tragically in December.

O'Donnell's nephew and Motherwell striker David Clarkson accepted the awards on behalf of the family.

He said: "It means a lot. The family take a lot of comfort knowing he's been thought of in this way and they really appreciate it."
