Brendan Rodgers missed out on the manager of the year shortlists but if the votes were held now, would he get your vote?

KEITH JACKSON: Rodgers would be the first man to pay respect to the job Derek McInnes has done by nailing down a Europa League spot for Kilmarnock and the Rugby Park boss has punched harder than anyone else this season. The Celtic manager will content himself with a league title and, very probably,
a Scottish Cup into the bargain.

ANDY NEWPORT: Celtic have made heavier weather of this title race than they should have. Derek McInnes, meanwhile, has performed heroics taking Killie from the Championship and into Europe. He’s still my pick for this year’s top boss.

CRAIG SWAN: Over-achievement is the key measure for the award. It remains impressive, but Rodgers won't overachieve at Celtic by winning the title. Derek McInnes has overachieved at Kilmarnock by getting fourth.

FRASER WILSON: I’d stick with John McGlynn. But Rodgers would be a close second after coming through a turbulent spell where he faced challenges on the park and in the stands to lead Celtic to the brink of another title. His quality and experience has shone through.

Philippe Clement has been largely praised since taking over at Ibrox - but is he now under pressure after allowing Celtic to edge close to another title?

KEITH: Pressure? Probably not. But he'll come in for some serious scrutiny nonetheless. It's very difficult to decipher what exactly the Belgian wants his Rangers side to be. If there is no defined style to their play next session - and they continue to play second fiddle to Celtic - then the rest will be inevitable.

ANDY: Rangers are in danger of slipping into a toxic cycle of sacking bosses, watching their replacement have a brief upturn before results slump and starting again. Clement needs time - and money - to get things back on track.

CRAIG: He's no different from any other Rangers manager. You don't get it right and beat Celtic, you face the heat. It's a fact that his team haven't played well in any of his three Old Firm games.

FRASER: Only the regular daily pressure that Rangers managers face at even the best of times. Clement has cut the gap in his time in charge and even though the challenge has fallen at the final hurdle the Belgian has done enough to earn a second transfer window and a full season in charge.

John Lundstram will sit out Rangers' final two league games - but does he deserve the chance to bow out at Ibrox with a place in Gers' Scottish Cup Final line-up?

KEITH: Nicolas Raskin has been out of favour for some time but the Belgian looked more dynamic and purposeful in his short cameo off the bench at the weekend.

He should be given the chance to prove that he's actually an upgrade on Lundstram whose mind is already elsewhere.

ANDY: Lundstram was back to his best at the turn of the year but fluctuating form has been the story of his Rangers career. Raskin looked brighter than the Scouser has for weeks and should get the nod for Hampden.

CRAIG: No he does not. Not because of his senseless red card. But because he's not mobile enough to cope with Celtic's engine-room dynamism and movement.

FRASER: Lundstram had a shocker on Saturday and Rangers should be relying on their experienced players to dig them out a hole not throw them in one on these occasions. He’s been a great servant but right now I’d be inclined to leave him out and possibly bring in Nico Raskin.

It's getting nervy at the bottom as Ross County and St Johnstone continue to stumble. Who's heading for the play-offs?

KEITH: They'll go head-to-head in Perth on Wednesday night and it's looking like a potential winner-takes-all scenario. But a point should be enough for Ross County and consign St Johnstone to the play-off trap door.

ANDY: St Johnstone are a team that don’t score nearly enough while County have 20-goal striker Simon Murray. His firepower should see the Dingwall men to safety.

CRAIG: Ross County have the better form over recent weeks and St Johnstone might have to survive the nerve shredder.

FRASER: I reckon the loser of Wednesday night’s drop zone ding-dong between these two in Perth will be play-off bound. County’s rotten away form suggests that will be them. But Saints have hardly been pulling up trees and if it ends in a draw this midweek then Craig Levein had better brace himself for the nerve-shredder.
