Livingston boss Gary Holt reveals former Rangers winger Gregg Wylde has no future with the Lions


LIVINGSTON boss Gary Holt has told Gregg Wylde to train with the reserves and informed the former Rangers winger he is free to find a new club.

Wylde, 28, penned an 18-month contract in January but made just three appearances for the Lions in the second half of last season, with just one of those coming from the start.

He is yet to feature for the Livi first-team this term, with his only competitive outing coming for their Colts side in a 3-1 Challenge Cup defeat against Formartine United.

Holt insists he has no issue with Wylde’s work ethic but has made it clear that the player must look elsewhere if he wants regular football.

“Gregg is free to leave, simple as that. He has been training and playing with the reserves,” said Holt. “I’ve said before that when you sign players, you won’t get them all right.

“We played a system that maybe doesn’t suit Gregg – a 3-5-2, mostly – and I don’t think it helps that he’s a natural winger.

“He works hard, does his job, but I don’t see him playing – and I don’t want to keep people here for the sake of it.

“We’ve said to Gregg that he isn’t going to get much game-time here and he can go.

“I’m honest with people and Gregg has the opportunity to go elsewhere if he wants to. Otherwise he’ll be in training with the reserves until he does leave.”
