Livingston manager Richard Gough is to leave the club at the end of the season, it has been announced.

Gough, 43, is believed to want to return to the United States where had a spell as a player while his assistant Archie Knox will also leave the club.

Chairman Pearse Flynn said: "Richard and Archie have done an excellent job in difficult circumstances."

Livi need only a point to ensure their top-flight status and Flynn paid tribute to Gough and Knox for that.

He added: "Their primary task was to steady the team's fortunes and start to climb away from the bottom of the table, as well as refreshing the first-team squad in January.

"This they have achieved, although obviously we are all preparing for a grandstand finish to the season against Dundee at Almondvale this weekend."

Gough, who was entering management for the first time after playing spells at Dundee United, Tottenham, Rangers, Kansas City, San Jose and Everton, will take charge of the team at the weekend.
