Celts double as Strachan and Brown win awards

Gordon Strachan watched Scott Brown pick up the PFA Scotland Player of the Year prize and declared his star midfielder could go right to the top of the game.

Celtic midfielder Brown took the plaudits from his fellow professionals at tonight's awards dinner in Glasgow thanks to a series of dynamic displays which have helped the Hoops to the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League and Co-operative Insurance Cup glory.

The 23-year-old saw saw off competition from team-mate Gary Caldwell and Rangers pair Pedro Mendes and Steven Davis to land the gong for the first time.

Strachan signed Brown from Hibernian for a reported £4.4million almost two years ago and has since watched him blossom from a raw talent into the driving force behind Celtic's bid for a fourth straight SPL title.

''How good he'll be is what we should be looking at, that's for sure,'' Strachan told PA Sport.

''It's up to himself, really. Through his career, he's worked with good people at Hibs; hopefully, he's worked with good people at Celtic.

''Where he goes, I don't know.

''But he can play at a really high level - that's for sure.''

Strachan was more modest when assessing his own merits after being named Manager of the Year.

The award, which is voted for by all league bosses, is in just its third season and tonight was the second time Strachan had landed the prize.

He said of his fellow managers: ''I think we all know what a difficult job we're doing and sometimes they all realise what a difficult job it is to manage an Old Firm club.

''Sometimes they just feel sorry for us. I think they give it to us for the beating we take every now and again.

He added: ''It's easier for us to to be successful because we've got more money.''
