Prize guys

Back slapping all round as the Clydesdale Bank announced the winners of their Premier League awards for the season:

Manager of the Year: Walter Smith

Player of the Year: Methuselah...not really. David Weir

Young Player of the Year: David Goodwillie

Goal of the Season: Anthony Stokes v Rangers

Save of the Season: Artur Boruc v Hibs

There is a name in there that still makes me snigger every time I hear it. There's just something inherently, if immaturely, funny about the name Walter...

Boruc isn't the only winning Celt this week with Robbie Keane picking up an award as Celtic's Player of the Season, as voted for by the supporters.

Keane's scored a lot of goals since his arrival, although I feel his overall impact has been muted, but it says much about the season that his 13 or so games have been enough to take the award.

In other news the SPL has signed a new sponsorship deal with Clydesdale that takes them through to 2013.

Nice to know that the league will still have a sponsor even if half its teams go bust.
