Wanyama bags another Young Player gong

WANYAMA-SPARTAKGLASGOW, Scotland, May 14- Celtic and Harambee Stars midfielder, has bagged the Scottish Young Player of the Year award in yet another feather in his increasingly decorated cap.

Wanyama has been in fine form for Celtic this season with eye-catching performances in the Scottish Premier League (SPL) as well as the UEFA Champions League where the Hoops fell at the knock-out stage to Italian side Juventus.

“I just wanted to try and have a good season, to try to top my goals from last season.

“I only got 11 last season, which is poor, especially for my record of previous seasons, so to get near the 30 mark that was what I was aiming for,” Wanyama told BBC Scotland.

The 21-year-old has become a mainstay of the Celtic side that has won a second successive title and will meet Hibs in the Scottish Cup final and added his recent decoration to the PFA award he bagged.

Wanyama is expected to captain Harambee Stars in their 2014 World Cup qualifier against the Nigeria Super Eagles in Nairobi on June 5 in the absence of regular skipper Dennis Oliech.
