SPL side set for manager talks with veteran after Ibrox exit - report

Scottish Premiership new boys Livingston are set to hold talks with veteran striker Kenny Miller over taking the reins at the Tony Macaroni Arena, according to a report, after the 38-year-old’s Rangers contract came to an end on Thursday.

According to the Scottish Sun, the Lions are interested in holding discussions with Miller about replacing David Hopkin who surprisingly left earlier in the week.

Miller left Ibrox under a cloud following a bust-up with then-Gers boss Graeme Murty and the chance to jump straight into management could appeal to the 69-times capped Scotland international.

Football Insider verdict:

Miller has been starting to prepare for life after playing and was a regular feature helping out with the Under-20’s 12 months ago as he worked towards completing his coaching badges. Taking over at Livingston would be a massive task with the West Lothian side almost certain to go straight back down to the Championship. Miller would bring a huge amount of experience to the Tony Macaroni Arena but whether he wants to continue to push his playing career on a little bit longer or not remains to be seen – and the added pressure of management and playing probably wouldn’t be a wise choice right now as Livi prepare for their first season in the top-flight in over a decade. After leaving Ibrox, Miller won’t be out the game for long but the veteran striker has a massive decision over whether he is ready to make the leap into the dugout and begin the next chapter of his career.
