Livingston FC can today confirm that Head of Academy Professional Programmes and First-Team Coach Dougie Imrie has left the club to take the first-team manager job at Greenock Morton.
Having joined the club from Hamilton Academical back in May, Dougie has been a key player in getting our youth academy back up and running as well as having a hands on role within the first-team set-up alongside David Martindale and Marvin Bartley.
Dougie joins Morton having previously played for the Greenock side back in 2013/14, racking up 39 appearances and scoring 11 goals – including an extra-time penalty at Parkhead as Morton knocked Celtic out of the League Cup.
David Martindale said: “I just want to go on record thanking Dougie for all his efforts while at the club. As a club, it’s never easy losing important members of staff but at the same time, it’s also pleasing to see staff who have become good friends go on and have opportunities that are progressive in their careers. Dougie goes with all our thanks and best wishes going forward.”
Good luck, Dougie – all the very best!
