CAROLINE WEIR has been listed alongside some of the football's biggest names after being nominated for two Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) awards.

The Dunfermline-born midfielder, who plays her club football with Liverpool Ladies in the FA Women's Super League One, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Players Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year accolades after the nominees were announced today.

Scotland international Caroline, 21, will join star names such as Chelsea's Eden Hazard, Manchester United superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Everton's prolific goal-getter Romelu Lukaku - who have been shortlisted for the male Players Player of the Year - at the PFA awards ceremony on April 23.

After the nominees were announced this morning, she wrote on Twitter: "Honoured to be nominated for @PFA young player and players player of the year. Congrats to all other nominees!"

Caroline's international team-mate, Manchester City's Jane Ross, has also been nominated for the top prize along with another two City players - England internationals Jill Scott and Lucy Bronze - and Chelsea's Karen Carney and Birmingham City's Ellen White.

The double nomination comes after Caroline - named Liverpool's fans' player of the year after top-scoring last year with seven goals in 16 games - was also named as Scotland player of the year in February, and won the Sporting Breakthrough Award at the inaugural 2017 Nordoff Robbins Scotland (NRS) Scottish Sporting Awards last month.

Talented Pars fan Caroline, who began her footballing journey with Elgin Star, was also an ever-present in the Scotland team that reached their first-ever major tournament by qualifying for this summer's European Championships in the Netherlands.

The Scots will take on England, Spain and Portugal at the tournament, which kicks off in July.
