Robbie wins April manager of the month

10th May 2021

Robbie Neilson has won the Scottish Championship Glen’s Manager of the Month award for April.

The manager guided the Championship winners through the last month of the campaign unbeaten, keeping five clean sheets and recording 6-0, 3-0 and 4-0 wins over Alloa, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Raith Rovers respectively.

Receiving the award for the second time this season, Robbie said: “I’ve got to give praise to the players because they’ve earned this award as much as anyone else.

“To go through an entire month – five games – without conceding a single goal is tremendous, and at the other end of the pitch we scored 13 times so I really couldn’t have asked for anything more from them.

“We ended the season well and it’s now about resting before regrouping and starting the hard work all over again come June.”
