Jim Duffy named the Ladbrokes Championship Manager of the Season
Greenock Morton manager Jim Duffy has been named the Ladbrokes Championship Manager of the Season after leading his side into the play-offs in 2016-17.
The Ton finished the season in fourth position, four points ahead of nearest challengers Dunfermline Athletic.
They eventually succumbed to a Premiership play-off quarter-final defeat to hot fancies Dundee United. However, the most recent campaign has to be considered a huge success.
Duffy led the Cappielow club to the League 1 title in 2014-15 and fifth place in the second-tier last season.
And his side’s further progress this term has seen the 58-year-old Glaswegian recognised with the Manager of the Season accolade.
Morton enjoyed a number of high points during the most recent campaign, notably defeating rivals St. Mirren 3-1 at Cappielow back in November.
That victory came during a seven-match unbeaten run with a 5-0 thrashing of Queen of the South also featuring in that sequence.
Overall, it’s been another breakthrough season for Duffy and a number of his stars with this award just desserts for the gaffer’s efforts.
