Managerial changes at Livingston and Dunfermline Athleticby Jack Kitson / 16 December 2014, 11:14Tweet
Rangers have dominated the headlines in Scotland during the last few days, however the spotlight has briefly switched after the Scottish second and third tiers witnessed two managerial departures this morning (Tuesday). First off, news broke that Jim Jefferies had departed League One outfit Dunfermline Athletic, which was swiftly followed by an announcement from Championship side Livingston who revealed that John McGlynn had left the club.
Jefferies opted to step down from his post at Dunfermline after 33 months in the dugout. The 64-year-old leaves the Fife club 4th in the table, following Saturday's 3-1 defeat away to Airdrieonians. The veteran boss has been instantly replaced by head coach John Potter, who takes charge of first team affairs until the end of the season.
Meanwhile up in the Championship McGlynn has parted ways with Livingston by mutual consent after 15 months at the helm. The decision comes after a poor start to the campaign, which leaves the club rooted to the bottom of the table with a meagre tally of seven points from 16 matches. The Lions had only managed to win just one of their last 14 games in all competitions (excluding penalty shoot-outs), including Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Falkirk. Livingston have named player-coach Mark Burchill as caretaker manager while they search for a new boss.
