Steve Clarke has been named Scottish Premiership Manager of the Season with Kilmarnock.
Clarke, who has also won the PFA Scotland and Scottish Football Writers' Manager of the Season awards, has been heavily linked to the vacant Scotland manager's job.
Kilmarnock assistant manager Alex Dyer has admitted that Clarke would find it hard to turn the offer down, if the SFA opted to approach him.
He was believed to be on a three-man shortlist with Aberdeen's Derek McInnes and Scotland U21's Scot Gemmill, but McInnes ruled himself out of the running on Friday.
Kilmarnock are currently third in the Scottish Premiership, level on points with Aberdeen with one match to play.
The Rugby Park club have won 18, drawn 10 and lost nine matches over the course of the campaign so far.
Finishing the season there would constitute Killie's greatest top flight position at the end of a campaign since their famous league triumph in 1965, and their best since 2004 when they ended the season in fourth.
Clarke's side come up against Rangers in their final game, when he will have to watch the game from the stands after being handed a two-game touchline ban for recent post-match comments about referee Steve McLean.
