Former manager in the mix to return to Livingston following Kenny Miller exit

Kenny Miller’s venture into the chaotic world of football management didn’t quite go to plan, with the player-manager leaving Livingston after only two league matches at the helm.

But now Miller’s predecessor is in line to make a dramatic return to the West Lothian outfit.

David Hopkin has been propelled into the frame at 6/1 in the Next Livingston Manager Market, less than three months after leaving the club.

Hopkin stepped down from his position back in May after opting to reject a contract extension following back-to-back promotions up to the SPL.

At the time the 47-year-old was being hotly linked with a move south of the border with the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Carlisle, Bradford and Brentford, however after leaving Livingston “to seek a new challenge in football,” nothing ever came to fruition.

Hopkin has been unable to find a new job, meaning he could now decide to make a sensational return to Livingston.

The club are currently 9th in the SPL after picking up one point from their opening two games with Hibernian at home next on the cards this weekend.

Other early names in the frame for the vacancy include former Falkirk boss Gary Holt, Gavin Skelton, Robbie Neilson and Jim Duffy, while Henrik Larsson is priced at 10/1.
