Livingston are reportedly set to pay all of their staff in full as normal during the football shutdown.

The club have just posted a record profit of £367,530 for the year ending June 2019, which was one season being back in the Premiership.

That is an increase of £320,000 from the previous year.

According to BBC Sport, Livi intend to pay their players and non-playing staff in full during the time football is on hold – which could potentially last for months – using the government’s job retention scheme.

The news will come as a huge relief for all those on the payroll at the Tony Macaroni.

The club recently set up an Operating Fund for fans to buy subscriptions to help raise funds, which may have suggested they were set to feel the financial pinch.

While that is probably still the case, it seems the club are in a healthier position than a lot of others.

Before the suspension of football, Livingston were on course for at least a top-half finish having sat fifth in the table.

They are currently two points ahead of Hibs, and it seems nailed on that, if the season is allowed to continue, then they will make a big improvement on last term’s ninth-placed finish
