Former Rangers and Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd has picked his Player of the Season but has admitted that he is ‘biased’ in his selection. Celtic players will dominate the Team of the Season picks as they make a charge towards a Treble.
The Sky Sports pundit made his selections in a SunSport column and he has selected the club’s Japanese striker Kyogo.
“I’ll be staggered if Callum McGregor and Reo Hatate don’t feature on the PFA Scotland shortlist. Kevin van Veen and Lawrence Shankland also deserve to be recognised for their goalscoring feats at Motherwell and Hearts. But the main man for me this season has to be Kyogo Furuhashi.
“As part of the strikers’ union myself, I’m a little bit biased, I admit that. Yet the Japanese hitman has been nothing short of phenomenal over the past ten months.
“Yet the Japanese hitman has been nothing short of phenomenal over the past ten months. He has that knack of scoring important goals at important times and always seems to make the difference when games are tight. Kyogo is on 29 at the moment and I fully expect him to score a few more between now and the final game of the season.
“Every time he’s on the pitch, you can see the terror in the faces of the defenders up against him.”
Surprisingly, Boyd hasn’t tried to give James Tavernier the POTS accolade but he rightly acknowledges that Callum McGregor and Reo Hatate could very well earn the accolade.
Kyogo scored five consecutive goals against theRangers in three games, which helped Ange’s team to build the lead at the top of the table as well as winning the League Cup.
The Japanese forward will be looking to help retain the Crown of Scottish Champions this weekend at Tynecastle. Ange could very well be coronated as the King of Scotland for the second successive year.
