Celtic fans react on Twitter as Rangers boss Warburton wins manager of the year

Rangers boss Mark Warburton wins PFA Scotland's Manager of the Year, but Celtic fans remain unconvinced.

The honours and acclaim keeps on coming for Rangers boss Mark Warburton, as he was named manager of the year by PFA Scotland.

Warburton is in his very first year in Scottish football, and has led Rangers to promotion to the Premiership, victory in the Petrofac Cup, and the team also have the Scottish Cup final still to play.


Next season there will be a bigger test for Warburton with high expectation on Rangers, who will be expected by many to challenge for the top places in the top flight almost right away.

That will require signings and investment, but that will only add to the pressure on the former Brentford boss to show what he can do.

Perhaps key to his win was their penalty shootout Scottish Cup victory over rivals Celtic, putting the reigning champions on notice ahead of their return to the top flight.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila since resigned, despite the club nearing a fifth successive title.

Bhoys fans were keen to point out that statistically Deila's Celtic have dropped fewer points that Warburton's Rangers, who were playing in a weaker division.

Commenting on Twitter in response to Warburton's win, they also pointed out Ross County boss Jim McIntyre missing out despite leading the unfancied side to a League Cup win.
