Livingston have agreed to let the former Hibs, Celtic and Scotland forward Derek Riordan continue training with them to improve his fitness levels.

The 32-year-old has been without a club since a trial period at Brechin City ended in October. He has trained at Almondvale for the last two weeks with Mark Burchill’s first-team squad and will continue to do so this week.

Riordan is keen to return to full-time football having played part-time at Alloa last year. He left Clackmannanshire at the end of the season before embarking on a trial with Brechin in League One. That came to a halt in October when he refused a contract offer.

It is unclear whether Livingston see Riordan as a potential signing having recently had their registration embargo lifted by the SPFL.

Burchill is happy to have the player train there, however he knows a player of Riordan’s talent could prove a useful asset in the fight against relegation from the Championship.
