In terms of the PotY race that we were running based on match-by-match votes, Todd Cantwell was the defacto winner of that with 9 MotM awards (despite only arriving in January) followed by Malik Tillman and Antonio Colak who both had 5 awards each.

Interestingly, the official Rangers PotY winner (and second most popular choice on the forum PotY vote), James Tavernier only won 3.4% of the total votes cast across the season with 12.9% votes cast for Cantwell, 11.4% votes cast for Tillman and 6.8% of votes cast for John Lundstram in third place.

Tillman was also placed in the top three of the votes most often (20 times) followed by Cantwell and Lundstram (both 14 times). Tavernier was in the top three 4 times and MotM only twice (against Livi in the first game of the season and at Parkhead in April). Clearly his contribution in terms of goals, assists and playing the most amount of games (missing just one) swayed many voters when they considered the season as a whole.

In terms of other relevant information, before previous manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst was sacked (and the World Cup break) Antonio Colak had won 5 MotM awards and was well clear in terms of goals as well. Similarly, the oft-criticised (and with his loan later terminated) James Sands ended up winning the same number of MotM awards as the recently heralded John Souttar. Interestingly, John Lundstram has been identified as a player that only showed his capability towards the end of the season but his two MotM awards came before November and he was considered out third most reliable player in that period (behind Colak and, erm, James Sands). Lundstram also featured in 52 games, second only to Tavernier.

Finally, Gersnet 2020/21 PotY Connor Goldson didn't receive any MotM awards this season (though only played in 38 games), whilst Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos also had their worst years in terms of votes. as their Rangers careers came to a disappointing end last month.

Do any of these figures change your opinion?
