Celtic played some of their best football without their captain but continues to play such an influential role mentally within the team.
After a really disappointing first half of the season at Dundee, the Finnish international made a name for himself in the Rangers midfield with a number of composed displays.
A frustrating season, missing a large chunk through injury. Couldn't quite replace Ryan Christie towards the end of the season. With such talent he should be a lot higher.
The teenager had a huge impact. Provided a number of memorable moments and was given a lot of responsibility by Derek McInnes which he didn't shirk.
So important to Killie. Does a bit of everything. Winning the ball back, pouncing on second balls, playing it forward. A huge presence.
From the Austrian second tier to dominating midfields in the Scottish Premiership. Emerged as a huge figure for Hearts in the way he could build play and win the ball.
The Dons captain was the heart of the Aberdeen team. Bringing energy, legs and leadership from the midfield.
Developed a productive relationship with Alfredo Morelos as the most progressive midfielder before being moved into a narrow position further up.
There were question marks whether he would make it at Celtic but emerged as a key feature to some of Celtic's best play. Quickened the team in attack and provided penetration.
Fifteen goals in 30 appearances in the league. On top of that helped completely reshape Motherwell's playing style. An excellent talent.
The best midfielder bar none. No matter what position he plays in he oozes class. Celtic were at the best when he was the puppet master at the base of the midfield.
