Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers

Neil Lennon has won the Scottish Ladbrokes Championship manager of the month award.

The Lurgan man and striker Jason Cummings landed the gongs for a month which saw them win all four league matches.

David Macdonald of Ladbrokes said: "Hibs have landed the award double following a perfect month which saw them make a big statement in the Ladbrokes Championship."

The award comes after Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers won the same award for the Scottish Premiership last week.

Carnlough man Rodgers oversaw his side's demolition of rivals Rangers at Saturday's Old Firm game.
