MORTON manager Jim Duffy was today crowned the Ladbrokes Championship manager of the season.

The 58-year-old was presented with the sponsor's award at Cappielow this morning.

Duffy led his side to fourth in the Championship, qualifying for the Premiership promotion play-offs before falling at the quarter-finals against Dundee United over two legs.

Morton also reached the semi-final of the Betfred Cup, losing 2-0 to Aberdeen at Hampden Park in October.
