ANGE POSTECOGLOU has been nominated for the Scottish Football Writers Association Manager of the Season award. The Australian is up against the four other managers: Malky Mackay, Robbie Neilson, Dick Campbell, and Scotland boss Steve Clarke. [The Sun]
Postecoglou has overturned a twenty-five point deficit while overseeing a mass rebuild. It’s hard to put into words how good a job the Australian has done.
Neilson has secured European group stage football for Hearts next season in their first season back in the top flight.
Dick Campbell has done incredibly well with his Arbroath side, just missing out on the title. They will look to earn promotion to the premiership through the playoffs.
The Staggies boss’ appointment didn’t please many fans, but he’s guided his side to the top six and hunting for European football, playing an attacking style.
Steve Clarke led Scotland to the Euros for the first time this millennium; however, the campaign was quite underwhelming.
There was no place for the Ibrox boss, but why should there be?
Celtic are now in touching distance from the league. Postecoglou will be keen to wrap it up as soon as possible.
In my unbiased view, I think the former Yokohama F. Marinos manager should be the recipient of the award. But credit should be given to the other managers shortlisted. There have been some incredible moments in the cinch this year. Hopefully, this continues onto next.
