Hearts midfielder Paul Hartley has been named Bank of Scotland Player of the Year for 2005/06, with Kilmarnock striker Steven Naismith picking up the Young Player of the Year award.

Hartley enjoyed an outstanding campaign as he helped Hearts clinch a Champions League place and claim the Scottish Cup for only the second time since 1956.

The Scotland ace scored the penalty against Aberdeen that secured second spot in the league and his semi-final hat-trick against Hibernian was another highlight.



Naismith had the distinction of being named both Player and Young Player of the month over the course of 2005/06. The 19-year-old finished the season with an impressive 13 goals as Kilmarnock finished fifth in the table.
