The award was voted for by his fellow professionals at all 92 Premier League and Football League clubs.

Rodgers lead the Reds to second place in the Premier League, narrowly finishing behind Champions Manchester City on the final day of the season.

An 11-match winning run to enter the title race was the club’s best run of league form in 24 years as they accumulated 84 points.

Rodgers is the first ever Liverpool boss to win the award, which started in 1994.

LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson paid tribute to the Liverpool boss for his achievements this seasons.

“There can be no greater tribute to a manager and his work than a tribute awarded by his match-day foes and peers,” he was quoted in The Guardian as saying. “This evening we applaud Brendan Rodgers as he receives that most valuable award.

“Liverpool Football Club’s performances and results this season have provoked memories of some of those momentous years in the past when they had to contend with those two United’s, the first from Leeds, the second from Manchester.

“For Liverpool and Brendan, I’m sure we all hope this season marks the beginning of a new voyage and a new era.”

Crytal Palace boss Tony Pulis was voted the Premier League manager of the year for his remarkable turnaround of the club following Ian Holloway’s departure early in the season.

Leicester City‘s Nigel Pearson won the Championship manager of the year award, Wolves’ Kenny Jackett and Leyton Orient’s Russell Slade jointly the gong for League One, while Scunthorpe’s Russ Wilcox was the League Two manager of the year.
