Just seven glorious weeks into his first managerial job, Kenny Miller has been ousted from his post at Livingston.

The Scottish Premiership club have confirmed that they “amicably parted company” with Miller after talks held over the weekend.

Miller had been occupying a player-manager role but, concerned he was spreading himself to thinly, the Livingston board asked the 38-year-old former Rangers striker to knock the playing on the head and focus fully on his managerial duties.

However, Miller refused to retire and has subsequently left the club.

The club felt that the player-manager role wasn’t working and had requested that Kenny reverted to the a full time Manager’s role. Kenny however feels that he isn’t ready to give up his football career at this time.

As a result the club and Kenny have amicably agreed to part company.

Miller appeared in all seven Livingston matches he oversaw, scoring one goal as his side kicked off the new season proper with two defeats and a draw.

So endeth the grand experiment.
