Livingston have confirmed that interim boss David Hopkin has been appointed as head coach for the rest of the season.
The former Scotland midfielder has been in temporary charge of the West Lothian club since the recent departure of manager Mark Burchill.
Livingston are currently second from bottom in the Ladbrokes Championship but their next match is a Scottish Cup tie with Morton at the Tony Macaroni Arena on Saturday.
A statement on the club website read: "David’s intimate knowledge of the existing playing squad and awareness of the ongoing need to develop the pipeline of youth talent, combined with his desire to succeed, were all viewed as key factors in appointing him to the role.
“David understands how important it is for the club and our supporters to retain our Championship status, and work within existing budgets to ensure the ongoing financial stability of the club.”
