Livingston have appointed Kenny Miller as their player-manager on a reported two-year contract.

The 38-year-old former Scotland striker succeeds David Hopkin, who left after guiding them to the Scottish Premiership.

Miller only left Rangers earlier this summer when his contract expired, and will oversee his first competitive fixture in charge in the League Cup group match against Airdrieonians on July 14.

“I’m definitely going to learn on the job,” he said in quotes reported by the BBC. “There’s a great team of people behind me that have been here a long time, had good success over the last few years.

“So I’m really confident in the experience they’ve got to make my job easier than what it might’ve been at another club, maybe if I was having to look for staff here, staff there.”

“I’m totally delighted Kenny has come after a long week,” Livingston’s chairman Robert Wilson told the club’s official website. “We interviewed him at the start of the week but it was only yesterday it was all finalised.

“His arrival can only help the club to move forwards now.”
