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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
