Gary Holt has resigned from his position as Livingston manager.

The Lions currently sit 10th in the Premiership after a disappointing start to the season. Holt said after Livingston’s 1-0 defeat to St Mirren at the weekend that he would review his position at the club.

It’s now been announced that he will step down from his position as manager. Holt took over from Kenny Miller in 2018 and has guided the Tony Macaroni Arena side to great success in the Premiership.

They have punched above their weight under his guidance, finishing in a superb fifth spot last season. But now he has decided that this is the time to move on. Holt’s assistant and Head of Football Operations David Martindale will take charge on an interim basis.


“It is with great regret that I have made the difficult decision to resign as manager of Livingston FC,” said Holt. “This is not a decision that I have taken lightly but feel it is the right time for me to step away.

“I am proud to say the work we have done over the past two years has resulted in great success both on and off the pitch. The progression the club has seen has been remarkable to be part of and last season’s 5th place finish was one of many highlights.

“I would like to place on record my sincere gratitude to the club, fans and players for all their support during my tenure.

“I wish nothing but the best to everyone connected to the club for the future and hope there is a great deal more success to come.”
