Former Rangers star Charlie Adam has won the Championship Player of the Season award following an outstanding maiden campaign at his hometown club.
Adam left Rangers in 2009 after six years at Ibrox and moved south of the border, where he played for Blackpool, Liverpool, Stoke and Reading before returning to Scotland in September 2020.
The midfielder signed a two-year deal and hit the ground running at Dens Park with a series of strong performances.
It took a while for his teammates to catch up but the Dee eventually clicked, finishing second in the Championship before securing promotion back to the Premiership via the play-offs.
In the league alone, Adam scored seven goals and notched eleven assists, with one of his goals and two of his assists coming in crucial play-off ties.
Promotion was the main reward for his performances but he’s also now been presented with an individual accolade.
The Dee stated that they were informed about the Player of the Season award after their playoff triumph over Kilmarnock last month, but that the 35-year-old was only presented with it upon his return to training on Monday morning [Dundeefc.co.uk].
“Delighted to have won the Championship Player of the Season award, the hard work starts now for us all to be ready for the challenge of the Premier League,” Adam wrote on Twitter.

The former Ger’s quality and experience will be crucial to James McPake’s side’s bid to compete in the top flight next season.
Adam isn’t the only former Ger who’s currently excelling in a midfield role elsewhere.
