Elliot, forced to give up playing three-and-a-half years ago due to persistent knee problems, was previously manager of then-Junior outfit Edinburgh United.

He joined Hearts as a youngster and made 124 competitive appearances (starting 70) between 2004-2012, scoring 17 goals. Elliot later had spells at Lithuanian club Zalgiris Vilnius, Alloa Athletic and Raith Rovers before retiring in 2015.
