Celtic and St Mirren received awards doubles at the PFA Scotland Awards on Sunday night, with Hoops captain Scott Brown named Player of the Year.
Brown has enjoyed another stellar season at Parkhead and led the celebrations earlier in the day as Celtic secured the Scottish Premiership crown for the seventh time in a row after they defeated rivals Rangers 5-0.
Team-mate Kieran Tierney was chosen as Young Player of the Year for the third time in a row after playing a key role in another highly-successful season for the club.
The 20-year-old, who has played 51 times for Brendan Rodgers' side this season, was, like Brown, unable to receive his award in person as he is in Tenerife on a training camp.
Celtic still have the opportunity to claim a domestic treble on the pitch but they missed out on one off it, after Brendan Rodgers was pipped to Manager of the Year by St Mirren boss Jack Ross.
Former Buddies player Ross has guided his club back to the top-flight after they were relegated from the Scottish Premiership at the end of the 2014/15 season.
St Mirren have stormed to the Scottish Championship title this campaign, finishing 12 points clear of second-placed Livingston.
Meanwhile, Lewis Morgan - who was loaned back to St Mirren until the end of the season after signing for Celtic in January - earned the Young Player of the Year award after scoring 18 goals from midfield to help maintain their promotion push.
