PFA vote is 'an honour' for Keogh

IRELAND defender Richard Keogh says he's "humbled" to have been picked by his fellow professionals on the Championship's team of the year.

With his side still in the hunt for promotion to the Premier League, Keogh has pulled off a personal achievement with a place on the division's team of the season, as picked by the PFA.

One of three Ireland international in the XI - along with Keiren Westwood and Daryl Murphy - Keogh says it's a big deal.

"It was very humbling to be voted into the Team of the Year, even more so when it comes from the players that you play with and against week in, week out," said Keogh.

"It's a huge honour. It's something that I'm really proud of and a lot of thanks goes to the people that did vote for me, to be voted by my fellow professionals is really special.

"It is a team effort, we do everything together as a team.

"It's a massive honour for me to be nominated, but it is about the team as well. I wouldn't have been nominated if I wasn't in a good team," added Keogh.

"The club has really moved forward with the football that we like to play.

"It's attractive to a lot of people and things like that have really changed the perception of us as a group across the division."
