Richard Tait has become one of the most consistent performers in claret and amber in recent seasons.

Motherwell’s incredibly two-footed, versatile number two has proved his value to the side at both ends of the pitch.

Tait ended the 2017/18 season as the league’s top assisting defender, whilst playing a key role in the clubs record breaking season of 20 clean sheets. From right wingback or left, Tait was the most accurate crosser in the Scottish top flight.

In Carl McHugh’s absence, the Scotsman also captained the Steelmen at Hampden as they roared to a 3-0 victory over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi final.
