Kenny Miller to become player-manager at Livingston FC

Former Rangers striker Kenny Miller will be confirmed as the new manager of Livingston FC on Friday evening.

It will be the 38-year-old’s first management position and he is likely to act as player-manager for the Scottish Premiership new boys.

Livingston are back in the top flight after beating Partick 3-1 on aggregate in the play-offs.

However, manager David Hopkin then left after guiding the club to back-to-back promotions, having rejected the offer of a new contract.

Scotland international Miller left Ibrox when his own contract expired at the end of the season but has expressed the desire to continue his career.
