Mr Mojo Risin'

Those industrious chaps over at STV are in the process of unveiling the top ten Scottish players in the Online Writers' Player of the Year awards.

I was delighted to be asked to take over as profile compiler when they reached number five: West Bromwich Albion's James Morrison.

Another year of solid improvement for Morrison, a key part of Roy Hodgson's improving West Brom side and now an established international presence.

It's five years since he made the modern footballer's Declaration of Abroath and hitched his colours to the Saltire.

I'm not sure we've learnt to love him in that time.

But he's here to stay and his inclusion in this countdown of top players maybe points to an ever growing admiration of what he can bring to the squad as we look longingly to Brazil 2014.
