Steven Gerrard was voted the Football Writers’ Player of the Year, after dragging Liverpool through the season, whilst Ryan Giggs was voted runner-up and Wayne Rooney came in third.

Rooney has played all over the shop this season and has made a success of every role he’s been asked to play. In the 45 games he’s played in this season, he’s scored 20 goals and has 10 assists, with only five players scoring more than him in the league.

Giggs, who already has the PFA Players of the Year award to his name, has transformed himself from a left-winger to a central midfielder and has done a bloody good job of it. Scoring crucial goals and bossing the midfield in vital games, like that against Chelsea, he’s had a great season (although not his best ever, like the media would tell you!) 

So well done lads!
