Livingston are in a poor run of form at the moment. The Premiership newcomers are on a run of eight league games without a win.
They currently sit in ninth place in the league table, 13 points clear of the relegation play-off places, and 18 points clear of bottom of the table St Mirren.
That is a great achievement for a club who were in League 1 two seasons ago.
Holt would have been happy just to stay up this season. But the way Livvy have not been in relegation danger at all this season is remarkable.
So well has Holt down that he deserves to be one of the candidates to be named as Scottish football’s manager of the year.
He was parachuted in the job under difficult circumstances, but since then he has been nothing but a success.
The big challenge will be replicating the success next season. That will be difficult to achieve, but for this season at least, Livingston are one of the success stories of Scottish football, and Holt deserves plenty of credit for that.
