Celtic's Neil Lennon and Victor Wanyama have been named Clydesdale Bank Premier League Manager and Young Player of the Month for December.

An impressive month for the club saw Celtic win all five of their league matches to move two points clear at the top of the league.

Wins against Dundee United Hearts were followed by straight victories over St Johnstone and Kilmarnock.

Celtic then completed the month with a 1-0 win over title challengers Rangers.

Throughout the month 20-year-old Wanyama was a key player for Lennon's side, scoring in the 1-0 win over Hearts.

The Kenyan arrived at Celtic from Belgian club Germinal Beerschot for an undisclosed fee last July on a four-year contract.
