Steven Gerrard has won the Scottish Football Writers' Association's top manager following his title success with Rangers.
Gerrard beat Callum Davidson, Steve Clarke and David Martindale to the SFWA Manager of the Year prize.
The Ibrox manager said: “I'm delighted to receive the award. I receive it collectively with my staff.
“I think that goes without saying because we are very much a team here.
“I think we have achieved the success we have this season as a team of staff and I thank all of you guys in the press for voting for me and I certainly cherish the award.”
Gerrard admitted he had felt the burden of following past Ibrox managers before winning the title – and stopping Celtic claiming a record 10th consecutive crown.
Clarke had been voted among the top four after leading Scotland to their first major tournament in 23 years.
Martindale made the list after winning his first eight games as Livingston boss, not tasting defeat until his 15th, reaching the Betfred Cup final and guiding the club into the top six.
The votes were cast before Davidson followed up his Betfred Cup success by leading St Johnstone into the Scottish Cup final to continue a remarkable debut season in management.
