Raith Rovers are delighted to announce that manager Ian Murray has been selected as Manager of the Month for December 2023 by award sponsor’s Glens as we overtook Dundee United at the top of the league table.

December saw a return of 4 wins and 2 draws in the cinch SPFL Championship for the Rovers, with the first of those wins (away v Inverness Caledonian Thistle) breaking our Highland hoodoo as we overturned a 1 goal deficit to win at the Caledonian Stadium for the first time in over 20 years.

A monumental match live on BBC Scotland v Partick Thistle saw Rovers 2-0 lead cancelled out by Thistle before the Maryhill men took a 3-2 lead on the 69th minute, only for Rovers to strike back with 2 goals in 3 minutes to secure the 3 points in style and propel the club to the top of the league table.

That spot at the top of the league was maintained with 2 tough away wins in the space of a week, at Gayfield v Arbroath and then Tannadice v Dundee United.
A late Lewis Vaughan winner in Arbroath, and a strike worthy of winning any match from Dylan Easton at Tannadice were the headline-grabbers that week.

The last 2 matches of the month were at home, with a 4-4 draw with Ayr and a memorable 2-2 draw v Arbroath seeing the Rovers end the year as league leaders.

Well done Ian!
