The Celtic striker has spent significant time out through injury over the past 11 months, but has still managed to bag 20 goals for his club, including hat-tricks in consecutive games over St Johnstone and Inverness CT back in February.

He’s also represented his nation at under-21 level and netted an 11-minute hat-trick in a recent 3-1 victory over Slovenia.

The 21-year-old has some tough competition for the award with PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe nominated alongside the likes of Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and Bayern Munich speedster Kingsley Coman.
