FORMER Celtic favourite Davie Provan has snubbed Ronny Deila in the voting for Scotland’s Manager of the Year.
The Norwegian is on the verge of becoming only the third Hoops boss in history to win the Treble, following Jock Stein, who achieved the feat twice, and Martin O’Neill.
But Provan, Billy McNeill’s first signing for the club in his debut managerial stint at Parkhead in 1978, is not convinced.
Instead, the ex-Scotland international winger is going for Inverness Caley Thistle boss John Hughes, who will hope to leave Deila’s Treble hopes in tatters after tomorrow’s Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden.
Provan said: “I’ve taken a bit of stick from Celtic fans for naming John Hughes as my Manager of the Year.
“A Hoops Treble should make Ronny Deila a shoo-in they argue. Sorry, but Deila’s European failure costs him my vote.
“Meanwhile, Big Yogi has Caley Thistle on target for Europe, despite having to sell goal machine Billy McKay last January.
“Interestingly, both Deila and John Collins are giving Hughes the nod, as well.”
