Robbie wins Manager of the Month

10th September 2021

Robbie Neilson has been named as the Scottish Premiership Glen’s Manager of the Month for August.

The manager picked up the award after the Jambos’ impressive start to life back in the top flight, going undefeated in four games including wins over Celtic, St Mirren and Dundee United.

The boys in maroon sit joint-top of the cinch Premiership alongside Hibs, with the two sides facing of on Sunday in the first Edinburgh derby of the season.

Speaking after collecting the award, Robbie said: “It’s nice that our form has been recognised and, for me, this award is for everyone involved with the team. 

“We win together and we lose together, and there has been a lot of hard work put in by the players, the coaches and all of the backroom staff at the start of the season. 

“It is, however, only a start. We want to keep our form going and we will keep working away to give ourselves the best chance of doing so.”

Colin Matthews, CEO of Glen’s owner the Loch Lomond Group, said: “The Jambos are back – and what a start they have had to their 2021/22 campaign. After finishing the first few games undefeated, Robbie Neilson fully deserves his Scottish Premiership Glen’s Manager of the Month award. Congratulations to him and his staff.”
