STEVE Clarke today added Ladbrokes Premiership Manager of the Season award to the PFA Scotland and Scottish Football Writers' Association prizes he has already landed.

The Kilmarnock manager was the overwhelming choice of a panel comprised of members of the Scottish media on behalf of the SPFL sponsors.

Former Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle United assistant Clarke is hoping to lead the Rugby Park club into Europe for the first time since 2001 this weekend.

The Ayrshire club are currently in third spot in the top flight table and if they match or better how Aberdeen do against Hibernian at Easter Road in their home game against Rangers tomorrow they will stay there.

Clarke has emerged as the favourite to succeed Alex McLeish as manager of Scotland in recent days.

David Macdonald of Ladbrokes said: “We are delighted to announce Steve Clarke as the Ladbrokes Premiership Manager of the Season.

"The job Steve and his backroom staff have done at Kilmarnock, not only this season but over the past two seasons is nothing short of remarkable, and thoroughly deserves this recognition.”
