Queen of the South boss Johnston lands Scottish gong

Queen of the South manager Allan Johnston has been named the Scottish Manager of the Year.

The 39-year old, who also played four times during the season, led the Dumfries club to the Second Division title which they won by 25 points over second-placed Alloa Athletic.

Johnston beat the likes of Celtic's Neil Lennon, Inverness Caledonain Thistle's Terry Butcher and Motherwell's Stuart McCall to the prize.

"It is unbelievable. I was delighted to be nominated but to win it is a thrill," he said.

"When you look at the other guys, Neil Lennon and his exploits in the Champions League, it is amazing.

"Terry Butcher and Stuart McCall have had fantastic seasons as well so even to be mentioned along with these guys, I was honoured."
