The Englishman has been far more involved this term than he was last season and as such he has felt more deserving of the accolades.
Wilson has become a settled and regular part of Neil Lennon's starting line-up and his performances this term have been assured and confident.
The 27-year-old joined Celtic 18 months ago but had problems off the pitch last year and wasn't fully fit after being left out of Nottingham Forest's squad after signing a pre-contract agreement with Celtic.
This season he has won over many of his critics and he is relishing the chance to play regularly.
"I've played a lot this year," he said. "I think this has been the most I've played in almost three years.
"I had my issues in my last season at Nottingham Forrest, I wasn't training or playing, and then at Celtic I've had injuries or not been able to get into the team because they have been doing well. But this season has been a good run for me and I'm enjoying it.
"When you enjoy it, it makes it easy, but if you're happy with personal things, it's 10 times easier and that's how it's been this year.
"I think winning the league this season would mean even more to me than last year. Things weren't right on a personal note so I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have," he told the Celtic View.
"A lot of things have been right this year – not perfect, but right – so I've got on with my football and I think it's shown."
