Cuellar wins the SFW Player of the Year award

Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar has won the Scottish Football Writers` Player of the Year award.

The Spaniard had already claimed the Clydesdale Bank Premier League prize.

The 26-year-old beat Celtic winger Aiden McGeady, who won the PFA Scotland award, to the prize.

The centre-back, whose superb defensive display helped Rangers shut out Fiorentina in midweek to reach the UEFA Cup final, has adapted seamlessly to Scottish football since a £2.4million move from Osasuna last summer.

'I am really happy with the award,' he said. 'It is not only recognition for myself but for all the hard work of the whole team. It is an honour for me to receive it.

'A big factor in my first season here has been the competitiveness of the squad because we have a really good group of players here.'
