Postecoglou has delivered the title at the first time of asking.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has been named as Glen’s Premiership manager of the season after leading his team to the league title.

The award is the third of the annual awards the Australian has picked up, after winning the Scottish Football Writers and PFA Scotland prizes.

Postecoglou joined Celtic last summer with a rebuilding job ahead of him but revamped the squad and introduced a style of play that won the League Cup and the Premiership title.

The Celtic manager said: “As I have said before it is very pleasing to win awards such as this and it shows we have been doing something right and achieved success, but once again it has been earned by the whole group of players and staff at the club as a true collective.

“We’ll dedicate this one to all our fans who have given us such phenomenal support during the season.

“Celtic Park on Saturday was just one example of this. It really was an atmosphere like no other and a day of celebration it really was a privilege to be part of.

“The club and the fans connected brilliantly again and the players put on a real show, demonstrating exactly why they are champions of Scotland.”

Colin Matthews, CEO of Glen’s owner the Loch Lomond Group, said: “This has been a really significant first season in charge for Ange Postecoglou, where he has rebuilt the side and held off a strong challenge from Rangers to win the title and secure Champions League group stage football for Celtic next season.

“Celtic’s form throughout the season has seen the manager pick up a series of our monthly awards and there is no doubt he is a worthy winner of the Scottish Premiership Glen’s Manager of the Season award.

“My congratulations to Ange and his team for a superb season.”
