The Bulgarian international has been in superb form this season for The Bhoys helping them retain their SPL title and reach the Scottish Cup final.
Petrov will face competition for the main prize from his Parkhead team-mate Paul Lambert, who again has been inspirational for Martin O'Neill's all-conquering side.
Rangers defender Lorenzo Amoroso is also one of the favourites for the top award after a fine season at Ibrox.
Livingston's David Fernandez, who has attracted the interest of a number of top sides, makes up the shortlist for the senior player.
Petrov, who won the Young Player of the Year award last season, is joined by Aberdeen's Kevin McNaughton, Motherwell's James McFadden and Rangers midfielder Stephen Hughes in the running for the award.

Stilian Petrov (Celtic) Paul Lambert (Celtic) Lorenzo Amoruso (Rangers) David Fernandez (Livingston)
