Ange named manager of the year in Scotland

Former Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has been named Managers and Coaches Association of Scotland’s Manager of the Year in his first season at the helm of Celtic.

The Australian is closing on the Scottish Premiership title, having engineered a six-point lead over Old Firm rivals Rangers with three fixtures remaining, and has already won the League Cup in his first season at Parkhead.

Postecoglou beat Ross County’s Malky Mackay, Arbroath’s Dick Campbell and Cove Rangers’ Paul Hartley to the award, which was announced at PFA Scotland’s annual awards dinner in Glasgow.

Celtic captain Callum McGregor was named PFA Scotland Premiership Player of the Year, beating his Australian teammate Tom Rogic, Hearts goalkeeper Craig Gordon and Ross County attacker Regan Charles-Cook to the award.

Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Rangers at Parkhead on Sunday meant they are unbeaten in 29 league games since losing 1-0 away to Livingston in September.

The Hoops can take next step towards their inevitable title win when they host third-placed Hearts on Saturday.
