Celtic's Gary Hooper and Emilio Izaguirre are vying with Rangers' Steven Naismith and Alexei Eremenko of Kilmarnock for the PFA Scotland's Player of the Year award.
Striker Hooper and left-back Izaguirre have been crucial components of Neil Lennon's side, with Celtic top of the SPL table with seven matches remaining this season.
Rangers midfielder Naismith will be hoping to beat Hooper and Izaguirre to the award and the SPL title, having helped Walter Smith's men to Co-operative Insurance Cup success against Celtic last month.
