Goalkeeper Craig Gordon and striker Liam Boyce will compete for the presitigious award along with Dundee playmaker Charlie Adam and Raith Rovers midfielder Regan Hendry.

The Tynecastle duo already have a Championship league winners medal in their collection from this season’s title triumph under Robbie Neilson.

Gordon was a pivotal figure throughout Hearts’ campaign with big saves at key moments. His form also earned him a recall to Steve Clarke’s Scotland and a likely place in this summer’s European Championships.

Adam and Hendry’s performances also resulted in a nomination from their peers, with both still involved in the promotion battle for a place in next season’s Premiership, with Dundee 3-0 ahead following the play-off semi-final first leg tie at Stark’s Park on Wednesday night.

The winners will be announced this Sunday, May 16.
