Rangers-linked Livingston manager David Martindale claims he’s happy at the Lions so long as he’s wanted amid an approach from St Johnstone.
Livingston have rejected an approach from St Johnstone for the likeable Tony Macaroni manager, 49, who has been in charge in West Lothian since November 2020.
In an astonishing story, David Martindale took charge at Livingston after spending time in prison for his involvement in organised crime.
Referencing his past, David Martindale insists that after meeting Livingston CEO Dave Black he will remain committed to the job in hand until they no longer want him to take charge of the side.
“I’ve said to the media before that it was a very easy meeting between me and Dave (Black, CEO),” David Martindale told Sky Sports. “Dave said the club wanted me to stay so I’ll stay at Livingston.
My future is always going to be, if the powers that be upstairs want me to be at Livingston, I’ll remain at Livingston.
“I don’t care who comes in for me – and that’s no disrespect to any other club – I owe Livingston a lot of gratitude, they helped change my life, they gave me a chance in professional football.
“There’s talk that he’s out of contract, I don’t need a contract. I’ve got a handshake with the people of Livingston that I’ve been working with for 10 years.
