Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been named the Manager of the Year by the League Managers' Association.
The northern Irishman has been honoured for leading the Reds from seventh to second in the Premier League, with only a late collapse denying the club a first league title in 24 years.
Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis finished runner-up to Rodgers in the voting for the overall award, though he did scoop the Premier League Manager of the Year gong for leading the Eagles to mid-table safety.
Roberto Martinez took the third spot for pushing Everton to the brink of Champions League qualification, while Manuel Pellegrini was overlooked despite leading Manchester City to the Premier League title and Capital One Cup in his first season in England.
