Rangers skipper James Tavernier has won the PFA Scotland player of the year award.

The right-back prevailed from an all-Ibrox shortlist following the club's Scottish Premiership title win.

Tavernier, who scored 19 goals this season, beat team-mates Allan McGregor, Ryan Kent and Steven Davis to the prize.

Davis earlier scooped the Scottish Football Writers' Association award while McGregor was named SPFL Premiership player of the year earlier in the week.

Steven Gerrard clinched the GMB Scotland manager of the year award, selected by his peers, to make it a treble of all the major manager prizes.

Gerrard succeeded from a shortlist that also contained St Johnstone's Callum Davidson, who is one game away from a cup double, Livingston boss David Martindale, and John McGlynn of Raith Rovers.
