Celtic's Lennon grabs Manager of the Year, Football Writers double

Celtic manager Neil Lennon was yesterday crowned as the Scottish Premier League Manager of the Year as well as receiving the Scottish Football Writers' award.

The 40-year old Northern Irishman capped a great season in which he guided the Hoops to the SPL title by taking out two individual prizes which he is extremely proud of after never winning anything individual as a player.

"Individual honours are quite special but you cannot do it without the players," Lennon said.

"I'm delighted to pick up the Manager of the Year award as it is a privilege and an honour and sums up a season in which winning the SPL title meant everything to me.

"I never won any ******g Player of the Year awards because nobody liked me!"
