Former Hearts coach Liam Fox has returned to Livingston on a temporary basis to help out caretaker manager David Martindale and Tony Caig as they manage the first-team squad following the resignation of Gary Holt.

Fox left Hearts in September after spending five years at the club. His last role at Tynecastle was as reserve team manager. However, as the club have no reserve games, he decided to move on to pastures new.

Will help out caretaker manager

That has seen Fox return to Livingston. Fox captained the Premiership club, and was a mainstay of the side for seven years. Now he has retuned to the club on an interim basis, with the first game against Dundee United.

“I’m delighted to be involved in football, even better to be back involved, back here at Livingston. When Davie (Martindale) game me the towards the end of last week, I’m delighted to come back and help out any way that I can” he said (Livingston).


Craig has been away from Livingston since 2013, and he is impressed with how the club has changed since then.

“Impressed by the way the club has moved on”

“I’ve been away for a fair period of time now, and I’ve been really surprised, and really impressed by the way the club has moved on, and how professional it is” Fox commented.

Fox also had some words of praise for the players he is coaching at Livingston, and how they have adapted to what has been a difficult few weeks with the exit of Gary Holt.

“I’ve been really impressed with their attitude, and their application to training has been really, really good. They are obviously looking forward to the game on Saturday now.”
