It has been a busy first season as Celtic boss for Ange Postecoglou.

The 56-year old has already secured the Premier Sports cup trophy and is looking to add a double in the Bhoy’s pursuit of the Scottish Premiership.

Postecoglou is also in line for a personal double of his own, as it was announced this morning that he had been nominated for the PFA manager of the year award.

Having already been named as one of the five managers in line for the Scottish Football writers award, this is Ange’s second nomination for the season.

He is joined by Ross County boss Malky MacKay, Arbroath’s Dick Campbell, and League one winning Cove Rangers manager Paul Hartley.

The PFA award is voted for by the players involved in Scottish Football, so Postecoglou is clearly doing something right to impress his peers.

His first season in the dugout at Parkhead has seen the former Socceroos boss turn the Hoops’ fortunes around completely after a disastrous campaign in 2020/21.

During what was expected to be a tough rebuild season for the club, Ange already has his side challenging for the title, and he could take a step closer to delivering that with a victory over rivals Rangers this Sunday.

Not too bad for a manager who was supposed to be ‘gone by Christmas’.
