DAVID ROBERTSON has swapped a Championship relegation battle at Livingston for a similar task at Ayr United.

Robertson has joined the Somerset Park side – currently occupying the relegation play-off spot in League One – until the end of the season, having made 19 appearances for Lions since joining in the summer.

“I’m delighted to get the move as I wasn’t playing as much as I would have liked at Livingston,” said the 28-year-old former Dundee United and St Johnstone player.

“It didn’t work out for me but these things happen.

“I’ve worked with the [Ayr] gaffer Ian McCall before at Dundee United so I’m pleased to go and work with him again. I didn’t know I was going to leave [Livingston] until the last minute. I had a couple of texts about things but as soon as I spoke to the gaffer, I was happy to sign for Ayr.

“I spoke to (Livingston boss) Mark Burchill and he mentioned that I could go out on loan or something along those lines but I wasn’t interested. I felt if the club were happy enough to come to a mutual agreement then I’d happily go. But there were no fallings out or anything like that.”
