Celtic's party stretched from lunchtime to night-time and from Govan to Cowcaddens as Henrik Larsson and Stilian Petrov shared the spotlight at the SPFA Player of theYear Dinner.
The peerless Larsson was the delighted recipient of the main award from his fellow professionals at a Glasgow hotel and leg-break victim Petrov collected some tangible consolation for the premature end to his season as he became the first foreigner to win the Young Player of theYear award.
Larsson won the SPFA title for the second time, following his success in 1998-99, with Hibs' Franck Sauzee and Russell Latapy and Claudio Caniggia of Dundee also short-listed.
'He is absolutely the right choice for Player of the Year,' said manager Martin O'Neill.
Petrov, whose fine season was soured by the injury sustained against St Johnstone, said: 'I'm delighted. There was a lot of competition from Gavin Rae of Dundee and Keigan Parker of St Johnstone.'
Falkirk's Mark Kerr was also nominated for the award.
Livingston striker David Bingham added to Saturday's title triumph by taking the First Division award, while Partick Thistle's Scott McLean and East Stirling's Steve Hislop were the Second and Third Division winners.
