KENNY MILLER’S seven-week reign as Livingston player-manager is over.

The former Old Firm striker took the role at the end of June after succeeding David Hopkin, who led them back to the Premiership.

A club statement said they “have amicably agreed to part company” with the former Hibs, Rangers, Wolves, Celtic and Derby frontman, 38. after weekend talks.

The Lothian outfit “felt the player-manager role wasn’t working” and wanted Miller “to revert to a full-time manager’s role”.

It added: “Kenny, however, feels that he isn’t ready to give up his football career at this time.


“As a result, the club and Kenny have amicably agreed to part company.

“Livingston Football Club would like to thank Kenny for his honesty and openness, and wish him well for the future.”

Miller played in all seven of Livi’s games this season, scoring one goal.

Former club Hibs, Aberdeen and St Mirren were interested in taking him as a player during the summer before he made his decision to switch to the newly-promoted club.
