Johnston, whose side stormed to the Division Two title and beat Rangers on their way to lifting the Ramsdens Cup, has been named alongside Neil Lennon, Stuart McCall and Terry Butcher.

Lennon steered Celtic to a second successive SPL title while the Glasgow side also reached the knockout stages of the Champions League and the Scottish Cup final.

McCall's Motherwell side are already guaranteed a Europa League place and look certain to finish second behind the Hoops this season.

Inverness currently lie in third place under Butcher's guidance and finished in the top six for the first time in the club's history.

PFA Scotland chief executive Fraser Wishart said: "This is the closest-run contest we have ever had.

"It speaks volumes for the quality of managers we have in our game in Scotland and there are a few more managers who I am sure could also lay claim to the title.

"All four nominees have had outstanding seasons and thoroughly deserve the accolade of being voted the best by their peers."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
