Thursday 26 May 2016 11:30

Ross McCormack has won the 2015/16 Player of the Season award by a landslide vote.

The Fulham fans were almost unanimous that the forward was the most deserving of the accolade, with 72.9 per cent giving him their vote.

McCormack built on an impressive debut campaign – when he was also named the Club’s Player of the Season – this time around, with his 23 goals in all competitions taking his career tally to 42 in 100 Fulham games. He also led the way with assists, laying on nine goals for his teammates last season.

It was form that led to a new contract in February, a first Scotland appearance in two years, and a place in the Sky Bet Championship Team of the Year.

McCormack was also considered to be the second-best player in the division, as voted for by club managers, behind the league’s top goalscorer Andre Gray.

The variety of goals scored by 29-year-old McCormack has delighted the Fulham faithful throughout the season, from his four free-kicks, to his numerous poacher’s strikes, or his finishes that oozed class, à la Bristol City at home.

Speaking to fulhamfc.com, Ross said: "A massive thank you to all the fans who have selected me once again. I’m delighted to pick up this award for the second time in as many seasons and this recognition via the fans’ votes means a lot to me."
