Hislop rejected PFA voting after snub for Man Utd's Yorke

Shaka Hislop
Former Newcastle United and West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop has revealed he chose not to vote in the PFA Player of the Year awards from 1999. Shaka, speaking to ESPN, says he decided to stop voting after the '99 Player of the Year went to Newcastle star David Ginola, a decision he described as "farcical".

The Trinidad & Tobago legend says his international teammate Dwight Yorke, then of Manchester United, deserved the award after his efforts in helping the Red Devils to the Treble.

Shaka admits he was unimpressed with the awarding to Ryan Giggs of this season's Player of the Year gong.
