Livingston have announced that 13 players will move on in the summer, including Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Alan Lithgow and Celtic cult hero Ambrose.

Emmanuel-Thomas has been linked with a move to Aberdeen and the far-east while Lithgow leaves the club having been with Livi since their League One days. Ambrose leaves Scottish football after spells with Celtic and Hibs alongside his Livingston stint.

Djibril Diani, Robby McCrorie and Julien Serrano return to their parent clubs following the expiry of their loan contracts while Ambrose, Raffaele De Vita, Emmanuel-Thomas, Steve Lawson, Lithgow, Scott Robinson, Ross Stewart, Aaron Taylor-Sinclair and Scott Tiffoney depart. Jon Guthrie is on the transfer list for family reasons.

Manager David Martindale said: “I would just like to go on record thanking every single player listed above. It’s been an incredibly hard season and one that has put us all under extra pressures on and off the park. This has ultimately led to myself and my staff having to make incredibly hard decisions without allowing emotion or sentiment to play a part.


“All players listed above have played a role in the development and progress of the club over the past seasons. Every player has contributed to that success in their own way and will leave with their own memories and I hope they feel proud of the success that they have brought to Livingston FC.”

“I feel I have to single out our former club captain Alan Lithgow who has been with the club since our League 1 campaign. He has been huge for this club over the years and I know I speak for everyone in thanking Alan for everything he has done for the club.”
