The Saints won two and drew three of their Premiership matches in December and currently occupy sixth place in the Premiership table.

The awards panel said: "These truly are great times for the St Mary's faithful, they are sixth in league, their best-ever Premiership position.

"This is largely due the commitment, experience and knowledge of manager Gordon Strachan.

"His side are currently on an eight-match unbeaten run and with players like James Beattie and Wayne Bridge doing so well, it looks likely to continue."
