James Tavernier, Allan McGregor, Alfredo Morelos, Ryan Jack and Ryan Kent are all up for the award.
Noticeably, there was no room for vice-captain and £3 million summer signing, Connor Goldson.
The central defender made an excellent start to his Rangers career.
When Steven Gerrard chopped and changed at the back during the first half of the season, he was the one constant.
Throughout the squad, he was a standout player until the turn of the year.
Has a recent blip cost Goldson a nomination?
Overall, the 26-year-old has racked up an impressive 45 appearances so far, in his debut season.
That’s second only to the skipper, James Tavernier.
Across all competitions, he has helped to register 19 clean sheets. Again, an impressive tally.
When you consider standout displays like in December’s Old Firm when he played through an injury, or, as part of the ten men against Villarreal, he looks a good candidate.
Add to that, the fact that he was a near ever-present, as the Gers conceded just twice in February.
However, recent form has caused concern among the Rangers faithful.
Even when the clean sheets were coming, he didn’t always look convincing.
At Easter Road on Friday night, he failed to produce the commanding display many have come to expect.
Furthermore, while the nominees were already announced ahead of last night’s debacle, his performance was perhaps an indication of why he hasn’t been nominated.
He looked shaky on the ball and generally ill at ease. Far from the player who has looked rock solid at other times this season.
That performance was gutless, heartless and absolutely embarrassing! None of them stood put 2night but my God Connor Goldson was the worst player on that park. Tav & Candeias not 2 far behind. Plenty questions 2 be asked but I still back Gerrard. European and league has improved.

I never want to see Connor Goldson on the ball as much as he was tonight ever again

Goldson may still feel aggrieved to have missed out on a place to Ryan Kent, among others. After all, despite his abundant talent, the Liverpool loanee has only been directly involved in nine league goals this season.
Regardless, though, the centre-back certainly looks a little out of kilter at the minute and with Nikola Katic waiting in the wings, his position may soon come under threat.
