Diego Castro named Perth's Most Glorious Player for a third time, Sam Kerr snares fourth

Perth Glory captain Diego Castro has capped a stunning A-League campaign with yet another club MVP award but it's team success that he's craving the most.

Despite missing seven of the 27 games this season, Castro was named Perth's Most Glorious Player for a third time.

Castro's hot form, which included seven goals, helped lead Glory to the Premiers Plate -- their first piece of A-League silverware.

The 36-year-old Spaniard's dominance was on full display in Sunday's 5-0 demolition of Wellington,...

Perth Glory goalkeeper Liam Reddy is adamant Diego Castro is the A-League's greatest ever player, saying the Spaniard's prolonged brilliance means he eclipses Alessandro Del Piero.

Castro has been in the hottest of form in recent weeks, helping the Glory build a seven-point lead at the top of the ladder.

Italian star Del Piero scored 24 goals in 48 games for Sydney FC, while Thomas Broich, Milos Ninkovic, Besart Berisha, and Bruno Fornaroli are other foreigners who have lit up the league.

Perth Glory defend Diego Castro after penalty shocker vs. Wellington Phoenix

Diego Castro's penalty spot shocker against Wellington Phoenix didn't cost the Spaniard any sort of tongue-lashing from his Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe.

With the game on the line, Castro produced one of the more feeble efforts from the spot in A-League history.

His Panenka penalty failed as the ball gently ballooned into the arms of stationary Phoenix goalkeeper Tando Velaphi.

The brilliant Spanish marksman looked horrified and the hosts made him pay soon afterwards.

Star Perth Glory import Diego Castro has been given the chance to rekindle an old partnership after convincing the A-League club to sign his former teammate Andreu Guerao on a one-year deal.

Castro and Guerao played together at Spanish clubs Malaga and Sporting Gijon, before they went their separate ways.

But the former roommates will be reunited -- in Australia of all places -- and Glory hope the Spanish duo will help propel the club to greater heights.
