The managerial bow of Kenny Miller ends in misery at Livingston

Steven Gerrard wasn’t the only rookie boss making his managerial debut up in the Scottish Premier League.

The Liverpool icon took charge of Rangers in the summer, while a former Gers star took charge of Livingston.

That man was Kenny Miller who penned a two-year deal as player-manager with the West Lothian outfit in late June following the departure of David Hopkin.

However, less than two months later and he’s sensationally left the club after just two SPL matches following talks with the board.

They lost to defending champions Celtic upon their return to the top-flight, which was followed by a draw against Kilmarnock.

Miller did however win three League Cup games, before his side lost to Motherwell over the weekend in the second round of the competition.

In a statement Livingston said:

“Livingston Football Club has been in discussions over the weekend with Kenny Miller and his representatives.

“The club felt that the Player-Manager role wasn’t working and had requested that Kenny reverted to the a full time Manager’s role. 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.”
