Celtic dominate Scottish Premier League awards

Celtic FC's Neil Lennon, Charlie Mulgrew and James Forrest have been honoured in the respective categories of Scottish Premier League (SPL) manager, player and young player of the year.

Champions Celtic FC scooped the main accolades at the Scottish Premier League's end-of-season awards ceremony.

Neil Lennon, Charlie Mulgrew and James Forrest were recognised in the respective categories of manager, player and young player of the year. Midfielder Paul George completed the full set of prizes for the Parkhead club by claiming the Under-19 league player of the season award.

"Individual honours are quite special but like every other manager you can't do it without the players," said Lennon. "They deserve so much credit. I'm delighted to pick up this award because it sums up our season really. Winning the league was the thing. All these awards that come with it are a bonus and I'm up against stiff competition because there are some great managers here."

The player awards complete a highly successful campaign for Mulgrew and Forrest, who had already been selected by their peers in the Scottish Professional Footballers' Association vote and also received the Scottish Sportwriters' awards for player and young player of the season.
