Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou makes it a double as he’s voted Manager of the Year for second season in a row

ANGE POSTECOGLOU made it to the double when he was voted manager of the year for the second year in a row.

St Mirren’s Stephen Robinson, Dunfermline’s James McPake and Stirling Albion’s Darren Young joined the Celtic gaffer PFA Scotland shortlist.

But it was Postecoglou who accepted the award as his Hoops side clinched a national treble win.

The Viaplay Cup and the Scottish Premiership title are already in the bag.

And Celtic will take the third point from three if they can beat Caley Thistle in next month’s Scottish Cup final.

Earlier in the night, Jota’s goal for Celtic against Rangers last September was voted goal of the season.

The Portuguese struck from a tight angle as Ange Postecoglou’s side defeated Ibrox rivals 4-0.

And while Celtic fans were understandably delighted, supporters from other clubs were puzzled over the winner’s choice.

Sky Sports Scotland hosted the competition and gave football fans the opportunity to vote for one of 12 options.

Kyogo Furugashi was the other Celtic player shortlisted, while James Tavernier’s free-kick in last month’s derby was the only Rangers game.

Sky announced the winner by tweeting: “Their goal of the season in the Scottish Premiership is Jota’s incredible chip against Rangers.”

And that has stunned many observers given the election.

Many were expecting Stephen Humphrys’ goal from within his own half for Hearts against Dundee United in Tynecastle to go through.

While others appreciated Mark O’Hara’s stunning long-range effort for St Mirren against St Johnstone and Luis ‘Duk’ Lopes’ goal for Aberdeen against Ross County.

A Scottish football fan wrote: “Not nearly the goal of the season. Awkward.”

Another added: “Did Stephen Humphry’s goal against United just not come about?”

While another remarked, “Not even his (Jota’s) best goal of the season, let alone the goal of the season.”

A fourth fan also shook his head: “Goal of the season? Wow. It probably wasn’t even goal of the week.”

And one fan account, citing a popular Simpsons meme, noted that it was a fan vote that decided, “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Democracy just doesn’t work.”

The awards were presented at a glamorous dinner at Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel.

Charlie Reilly didn’t leave Glasgow empty-handed after winning the League Two Player of the Year award.

It was Airdrie’s Calum Gallagher who was named League One’s best player that season.

And Ayr United sharp shooter Dipo Akinyemi secured the title for the Championship.
