Livingston manager David Martindale was named as the November manager of the month in the Scottish Premiership. After an amazing run of performances in which they defeated Kilmarnock and the Dons before drawing at Hearts, the team is currently fourth in the Scottish Premiership, two points behind Aberdeen. Martindale’s team had only lost once in their last six games, a 3-0 loss to Celtic that followed a stunning 1-1 draw with Rangers at Ibrox. In 15 games this season, Livingston has won seven of them as they aim to improve on their seventh-place position from the previous campaign.
“It’s always nice to be recognized for the club’s achievements, therefore I’m overjoyed to accept this award,” Livingston manager David Martindale said. “As everyone is aware, this honor was made possible by the efforts of the entire club’s personnel and players, and it is most obviously a joint achievement. I’m really happy that we’ve all been acknowledged for the success that has been made possible on the field because there is a tremendous amount of effort that goes on behind the scenes at most football clubs, and we are no different. As I said, it’s most definitely a group accomplishment at the football club, so I’m thrilled and happy to be the one to accept this award on their behalf.”
Because of Livingston’s performance, Martindale, a lifelong Rangers fan, has been tangentially linked to the position. However, the 48-year-old has laughed off those rumours and supported QPR manager Michael Beale instead.
