Manchester United Player of the Year winner announced

After an impressive season for Manchester United, Luke Shaw bagged the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year and was named the players' player of the year at Manchester United's end of season awards ceremony.

Shaw was one of the shining lights in an otherwise dark season for United that will see them end the campaign trophy-less and play in the UEFA Europa League next season. The England left-back is only the second outfield recipient of the award in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era after Ander Herrera, who was voted player of the year two years ago with David De Gea scooping the rest.

Speaking after receiving the gong, Shaw hoped that United had a better season, "It's obviously nice for me. But I'd rather win no trophies and have a better season as a team. It's nice but we need to move on and focus on next season and what's to come. I think for me personally it's probably been my best season since I've been here. I would have rather it had been a better season for the team but it wasn't meant to be.

"Thank you to the fans for voting me for this. And from me and the team, we want to, not apologize, but we know it's been a bad season. I look at the players in this team, we have amazing players, I know we will come back stronger. I'm very positive about next year, we all are as a team."

Other winners

Midfielder Katie Zelem was the inaugural recipient of the Women's Player of the Year trophy.
