Wayne Rooney was rightly named PFA Player of the Year tonight following his brilliant season for Manchester United.

A groin injury might keep him from claiming the Golden Boot award, despite currently being the highest scorer by one goal, but at least Rooney certainly has one individual award to reward his season.

Aston Villa’s James Milner was named PFA Young Player of the Year, beating Rooney, Cesc Fabregas and Joe Hart.

Rooney has become the fourth United player in a row to claim this prize, with Ryan Giggs being named PFA Player of the Year last season, and Cristiano Ronaldo the two seasons before that.
