Livingston FC is delighted to finally confirm Kenny Miller as the Club’s new Manager.
The former Scotland internationalist was unveiled this afternoon at the Tony Macaroni Arena to a packed press conference.
Director John Ward was clearly delighted to get the deal over the finish line: “we’re happy we’ve finally landed Kenny. We’ve been speaking since Monday, and it’s not helped that his agent has been in Colombia with the dime difference causing some issues.
“But it’s a leap of faith for Kenny coming into management, and a leap of faith for the club too, but we’re thrilled to have him here now and he’ll be a big influence on the park as well as in the backroom.”
Chairman Robert Wilson echoed John’s sentiment. “I’m totally delighted Kenny has come after a long week. We interviewed him at the start of the week as John said, but it was only yesterday it was all finalised. His arrival can only help the club to move forwards now.”
The new Gaffer himself spoke warmly of the task which lies ahead. “There’s an existing structure here that is definitely going to aid me and make the transition that bit smoother.
“There are going to be bumps along the road, there’s absolutely no doubt about it. Until you make the step, it’s a step into the unknown. I will learn in the job. In a month or two I’ll be more familiar with what is required and what the job entails.”
“This dressing room we’ve got has been huge. It’s a fantastic environment, they’ve worked really hard in the last few years to create that environment. They are a great group of boys who are all in there fighting for their club, each other and their coaches and managers. If you’ve got that, it can take you a long, long way.”
