Former Norwich City player and coach Gary Holt has been interviewed for the managerial vacancy at Scottish Premiership Livingston.

Holt has been out of the senior game since leaving his role as first-team coach at Carrow Road back in the summer of 2016, following a difficult season alongside manager Alex Neil as the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League.

Fellow former Scotland international Kenny Miller has also been in discussions with Livi, having left Glasgow Rangers as a player at the start of the summer.

Livi are expected to make a decision imminently, with St Johnstone boss and former Canaries goalkeeping coach Tommy Wright plus Carlisle academy coach Gavin Skelton also linked with the vacancy.

The club's players returned to pre-season training earlier this week, with assistant boss David Martindale taking charge.
