Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has won the SFWA Manager of the Year award.

The Hoops boss has already scooped up the PFA Manager of the Year gong and has racked up as many as 5 manager of the month awards.

And it looks as though he’s managed to secure yet another, which he’ll be awarded at a dinner event in Glasgow tonight:

Celtic are currently top of the Premiership and set to secure the title on Wednesday night at Tannadice. They could win the league as soon as today, however, should Rangers fail to beat Dundee United at Ibrox.

The manager has overseen a major rebuild at the football club and turned them into an instant winning machine. Celtic haven’t been beaten in the league since September, and have been on a storming run in 2022.

Postecoglou also won the Premier Sports Cup back in December and looks on course for a double.

Yet more fully deserved recognition for the Celtic manager

Brilliant stuff for Postecoglou, who in truth was the outstanding candidate. Neilson has had a fine season with Hearts whilst Dick Campbell has worked miracles with Arbroath. Malky Mackay, meanwhile, can hold his head high after taking Ross County into the top six.

However, you just can’t dismiss what Ange has truly done here. He’s turned this football club around both on and off the park. That disengagement between the support and the club just isn’t there anymore.

That’s largely down to the team Ange has managed to rebuild. Largely down to the instant success he’s had as Celtic manager and the progress he’s provided in year 1.

Not that this is anywhere near the end goal. Celtic will still have their sights set on making a bigger impact in Europe. But even so, he did well to quality for the Europa League and take 9 points in the group stages.

We’re in a fantastic position heading into the summer and excitement is sweeping the support over what areas of the club we decide to improve.

But when it comes to this season in isolation, nobody can deny the Celtic manager his MOTY awards.
