Livingston manager Gary Holt has been named the Scottish Premiership manager of the month after the club enjoyed an unbeaten September.

Holt has steered Livingston up to fifth in the Premiership table thanks to an impress September, having opened the month with a 2-1 win over Hibernian before beating Hamilton 1-0.

Last season`s Championship runners-up then held current table-toppers Hearts to a goalless draw before closing September with a 1-0 win over Rangers.

Livingston went on to draw their opening October fixture 1-1 at Motherwell, meaning the club have lost just once in their opening eight league games, which was a 3-1 defeat at Celtic on the first day of the season.

The accolade marks a superb start to Holt`s tenure at Almondvale Stadium, with the former Scotland international having only replaced Kenny Miller in late August.

Miller left his post as player-manager after just seven weeks at the club, with the striker not ready to give up his playing career after Livingston requested he revert to a full-time manager`s role.
