CELTIC winger Jota has been named as the Premiership's Player of the Month for April.

It is the third time the on-loan Benfica forward has won the monthly award after being named as the winner in October and November.

The Portuguese has made a big impression for Ange Postecoglou's side this term and supporters are hopeful that the 23-year-old will complete a permanent transfer this summer.

Upon receiving the award, Jota thanked everyone that supported him as he urged his Celtic team-mates to get their title tilt over the line in the final two mathes of the league season.

"I am delighted and really humbled to win this award after a great month for the team with some top results and performances," he said.

"I have just been one part of this success. Everyone at the club has been fantastic working together closely as a family to try and achieve what we want and with our fans right behind us we are nearly there.

"We have two big games to go and we want to give these the same energy and quality as we have all season - thank you so much to everyone who has supported us."
