Mallan has enjoyed an impressive season since joining Hibs from Barnsley last summer, scoring 13 goals – many of them stunning long-range strikes.

Porteous, 20, had been establishing himself as a first-team regular until surgery on a knee injury brought his season to a premature close.

Daryl Horgan’s second goal in the 2-1 win over Hearts at Tynecastle won Goal of the Season, while that match itself was Moment of the Season.
