Cameron Carter-Vickers and Malik Tillman were influential to their respective Scottish Premiership clubs in 2022-23 and both ended up rewarded Tuesday with a monumental honor.
Carter-Vickers and Tillman were both voted to the PFA Scottish Premiership Team of the Season, the federation announced. Both Carter-Vickers and Tillman enjoyed positive seasons with Celtic and Rangers respectively despite their individual campaigns ending prematurely due to injuries.
Tillman was also nominated for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old Carter-Vickers joined Celtic on a permanent transfer last summer and was one of Ange Postecoglou’s consistent performers this season. The former Tottenham centerback totaled 39 combined appearances for Celtic, helping Celtic lift the Scottish League Cup and Premiership title in recent months.
Carter-Vickers recently underwent knee surgery following Celtic’s advancement into the Scottish Cup Final later this month, sidelining him for the rest of the season.
He also appeared in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in his career.
Tillman enjoyed a positive loan spell in Glasgow, scoring 12 goals and registering five assists in 42 combined appearances for Rangers. The 20-year-old Bayern Munich loanee recently suffered a hamstring injury on April 30 in the Scottish Cup semifinals, forcing him to miss Rangers final matches of the season.
The U.S. men’s national team attacker was recently nominated for Rangers’ Player of the Year award, as well as two additional individual achievements this campaign at club level. He also featured in the UCL group stage under then-manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst.
Tillman earned his USMNT debut last summer under Gregg Berhalter and remains a top prospect in the current pool.
