ANGE POSTECOGLOU has completed his personal clean sweep of honours after being named Premiership Manager of the Season.

The latest honour follows the award from the PFA and also the Scottish Football Writers Association to notch a glorious treble in his first season as Celtic boss.

The 56-year-old Greek Australian gaffer, of course, has taken the country by storm after guiding a revamped Hoops side to their tenth title in 11 years after picking up his first piece of silverware six days before Christmas when two goal from Kyogo Furuhashi, his £4.6million recruit from J-League outfit Vissel Kobe in July, downed Hibs 2-1 at Hampden.

ONE…Ange Postecoglou with the PFA Manager of the Year award.

TWO…Ange holds the Scottish Football Writers’ honour.

THREE…the Celtic boss with the Premiership accolade.

Postecoglou, speaking to the club website, commented: “As I have said before, it is very pleasing to win awards such as this and it shows we have been doing something right and achieved success, but once again it has been earned by the whole group of players and staff at the club as a true collective.

“We’ll dedicate this one to all our fans who have given us such phenomenal support during the season.

“Celtic Park on Saturday was just one example of this. It really was an atmosphere like no other and a day of celebration it really was a privilege to be part of.

“The club and the fans connected brilliantly again and the players put on a real show, demonstrating exactly why they are champions of Scotland.”

PRIZE GUY…Ange Postecoglou celebrates with the Premiership silverware after the 6-0 win over Motherwell.

Postecoglou witnessed his team bringing down the curtain of a stupendous season when they strolled to a 6-0 grand finale victory over Motherwell in the east end of Glasgow at the weekend.

Kyogo hoisted his goal tally to 20 while Giorgos Giakoumakis, who cost a bargain £2.5million from Ditch club VVV-Venlo in August, hitting a double to compete the campaign on 17.

The alarming thought for defences at home and abroad is the fact both players missed a chunk of the term through injury, with the Japanese hitman sidelined with a hamstring injury for three months.
