Caretaker boss David Hopkin confirms Livingston manager situation set to become clearer within 48 hours



Livingston caretaker boss David Hopkin will hold talks with the club’s board in the next 48 hours as he prepares to find out whether he has landed the top job.

The 45-year-old guided the Lions to a fine 4-1 win at St Mirren on Saturday before seeing his stubborn side finally broken down by Falkirk in a 2-0 defeat last night.

The former Scotland internationalist remains one of the names in the frame to succeed Mark Burchill, who was dismissed last week.

Hopkin is acutely aware that Livi have received plenty of applications for the vacancy


Hopkin confirmed: “Livingston have plenty of CVs and I’m sure they have a shortlist of who they want. I’ll speak with the board on Thursday or Friday.

“If something is offered to me, then of course it’s something you look at. But I’m sure there will be a lot of people interested.

“Anybody going into coaching likes being their own man. I was at Morton for three years with their development squad as well and, in the time I was there, 14 kids made their debut.

“That coaching aspect is what I am good at. I get the best out of players and make players better. However,  I will just wait and see how it goes.”
