Livingston Win Playoffs; David Hopkin Leaves

Recommended Posts

An absolutely huge turnaround at the club, thanks to David Hopkin. Only took over two and a half years ago, and has put back-to-back promotions together. Their wage bill isn't even in the top half of the Championship and their victory over Thistle was convincing. Their only fit striker for these playoffs was 35-year-old Lee Miller, released by Falkirk in January. They aren't a stranger to rising and falling in Scottish football's ladder, but this may be their most remarkable run and it's not a bad start to Hopkin's managerial career. 

They will start next season as heavy favourites for relegation, and people will bemoan another 'small' club in the Premiership, but they have earnt their spot and, as shown in previous years, it is quite difficult to earn promotion through the playoffs. Rangers, Hibs and Dundee United have all failed to gain promotion through the playoffs and they have much larger resources to call upon.

Fantastic job David Hopkin has done. Unfortunately though, it sounds like he may be off.

Where to?

He's said he's had interest from rival clubs, so I imagine it will be another Scottish side like St Mirren.

Are St Mirren in the premier league?

They've just been promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

Livingston have confirmed manager David Hopkin is leaving the club after rejecting an offer of a new contract.

Hopkin, who was on a one-year deal, has led Livingston to back-to-back promotions, guiding them from League One to the Premiership.

The former Scotland international has decided not to renew his contract amid interest from other clubs, leaving assistant David Martindale to take temporary charge at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
